    You can't cheat an honest man. Now, why would someone willing to give away 250,000 need your 600? Why not just go ahead and send you the 249,400? That's an idea, tell them to deduct the 600 from the winnings and pay the courier charge directly. Offer them an additional 400 as a bonus for doing it your way.
