Seriously, there's a similar scam for Publishers clearing house. You even get a check for $5,000,000 right there in the envelope. Not sure exactly how it works, but you deposit it in the bank and the robbers get your account number and viola! While the check bounces your account gets cleaned out.
The moral of the story is, as the number of zeros increases, your paranoia should increase ten fold. And, if the deal involves beer be very, very careful. We all know what any self respecting river rat will do for beer.
