I thought you guys would appreciate this little bit of history. I have read about The Spanish prisoner fraud in “My Experiences at Scotland Yard” by Basil Thomson (1923). From Thomson’s first sentence, it sounds like it’s been around since the end of the Franco-Prussian War (circa 1871). Thomson writes: “The Spanish prisoner fraud has flourished for nearly half a century. It has the advantage over all other frauds in costing practically nothing for stock-in-trade, and incurring no risk whatsoever to the practitioner. All he needs is a little stationery, a few postage stamps, and the names and addresses of farmers in Scotland and England. The farmer receives a letter with the Valencia postmark from a Spanish colonel now languishing in prison on account of the part he played in a revolutionary conspiracy. …The world may be divided into two classes — those who would reply to such letters and those who would consign them to the fire. In spite of the picture drawn of Englishman by envious foreigners, the Britisher is by nature an imaginative and romantic person. That is why you find him in every part of the globe: he goes abroad for adventure, to escape from the humdrum routine of his home surroundings. And the farther you go north the more romantic he becomes. That is why there are so few Scots left in Scotland. To judge from the correspondence filed by the police, nine out of every ten reply, … …The [Great] War was unkind to the Spanish colonel, who had been lingering upon his death-bed for over forty years, and I hoped that it had killed him, but the ink was scarcely dry on the Treaty of Versailles before he broke out again. ”
How come its never £4.86 or $5.97? Or "I have a white £5 note....."
