Question 2.Larry wins a watch in a competition and as he already has a similar one, advertises it on the internet saying, I have won this watch (photo attached), its value is around $1500 but will sell for $15.

Jack sees the advertisement and rings Larry saying he will buy the watch that has been advertised. Larry says ok and gives Jack his bank account details. Jack transfers the money into Larry's bank account.
