    This man must be having surplus money. If it was hard earned, he would have thought twice to send the money to a stranger. Now he will become wise by his foolish act. Once bitten, twice shy. Unless you get beaten, you will not know the pain. He will be careful throughout his life now. It is only by such bitter experiences, that we become wise. Or else we need to learn from others bitter experiences. Sadly, he did not learn anything from so many frauds reported in these days, but due to his greed, he got trapped.
