Dude, I would have told the guy something along the lines of, "Okay, turn right at the police station, go past the house with the pair of USMC marked Hummers out front, then just listen for the rifle fire. I'll be on the range out back, make sure you get my attention before you come in through the barbed-wire fence, my pitbulls are a little aggressive. BTW, don't eat anything made of meat before you come over, they can smell it."

Sounds like a scammer to me, I'd keep an eye out the next couple days just in case.

communicating with someone that hardly speaks english is very difficult I used mostly sign language. I can still talk, but its muffled. close your teeth and try to talk..thats what I sound like.

The guy seemed slighly offended when I started counting money. I actually trusted him after counting $500 worth....got back to my office and counted the rest. its all there.6" high stack of money.
