Well this person is apparently banking on the old saying there's a sucker born every day, because you'd have to be a sucker to give him a dime.
It's not much better than the Nigerians who need your bank account to get their millions out of their country after their father, the former oil minister was eaten by a lion, and they'll give you 15% for your help. Only he doesn't even promise you anything for sending him money, and the Nigerians will pick you up at the airport.
Me, I always make it a point to go for at LEAST 30% of the money - I argue they still get 70% that way and it's a fortune to them. I also ask them to Western Union me my cut upfront. Surprisingly, no one has ever taken me up on the offer so I guess they didn't really need my help after all.
