It's quite common, but I'm not sure why. Possibly a lad saw a check and thought that amounts are always shown that way.

I know that on lots of legal documents numbers are written that way, so it's possible that lads think that it's more official-looking.

In some European countries (I'm not, however, aware about overseas like African countries) the decimal point in numbers is a comma, and the thousands separator a point. Mathematically, only the first sign from the left does count.

The lad's talking English normally should mean that the decimal point is a point, and the thousands separator a comma. So he's offering USD 8.50. That equals to about £5.20 or Euro 5.93. Not a real bargain.....

He's even too dumb to put the number of 8,500,000 into a written expression .....USD 8,000,500.00. My ass!

^^^^^ Indeed, some european countries use the commas to separate decimals and the dots to mark every three cyphers, for easy counting i guess. So, eight mil and five hundred would be 8.000.500,00.

The number as written is invalid. The only way I can parse it is as a pair of coordinates, (8.5,0).

Ahhhh lad officialdom, brilliant stuff. Never correct him (mistakes help tip off real potential vics), but do feel free to enter into conversation about the amount...

"What happened to the other $1.5M? The other guy said it was $10.000;000.00?"
"I have no need for the money, perhaps we can look for a suitable charity together?"

You get the idea, and have fun Smile

Yes, it's true that the use of the ',' in sums of currency isn't worldwide. For techies out there some countries use of a ',' instead of a '.' for IP addressing and that is confusing.

Apart from that I agree with Frumpy, why are you people so suspicious of nice people trying to throw millions of dollars in your direction Wink
