Maybe it is Jimmy Buffett. Eventually, whoever did this scam will want to convert their loot into other assets (other currencies, real estate, gold, etc..) so he/she can use it. If it's just some regular Joe, suddenly driving around in his new Maserati might raise a few eyebrows, but would anyone notice Jimmy Buffett with an extra 5 or 6 million?
