It’s all about the Benjamins, squared.

In the movies, when $64388488 gets transferred to someone’s account, they need to use a full-screen interface on one particular computer, and it takes like, two minutes and you have to watch a bar fill up across the screen, indicating that each individual money has moved from one bank to the next.

But over here, not-in-the-movies, I keep getting emails telling me that $64388488 has been transferred into an account at a bank where I don’t even have an account, without me having to do ANYTHING.

Now, I’m not necessarily calling bullshit here–I’ve already spent the money–but at the very least, one of these processes is a bit too complex, and the other a bit too informal.
