Yes, but this sort of trickery can bite you in the 'assets'! I refer you to the 'Bottle of Wine' scenario:
A young lady sitting in a fancy restaurant on her own receives a bottle of the very finest wine from the waiter with a note.
The note says:
"Hello, I could not help noticing that you are all alone and looking rather sad and I thought this bottle of Chateau Latour Grand Premier Cru 72 might make your evening a little brighter." X
The waiter indicates a very well dressed and handsome man sitting at a table across the room and tells the lady it is for her with the gentleman's complements.
She writes a reply on the note and the waiter delivers it back to the man:
"Sir, thank you for the kind offer of the wine, however for me to accept this gift would be seen as a form of acceptance of you as a potential sleeping partner. In order for this to happen you will also need the following:
1. $1 million in the bank
2. A Mercedes Sports car
3. At least 9" in your trousers!"
The guy smiles and adds his comments before giving the note back to the waiter for delivery.
His response is:
"Madam, for your information I do not have $1 million in the bank, I have $22 million currently, an investment portfolio worth over $280 million, a $20 million mansion in Beverly Hills, an apartment overlooking central Park, a villa in Antibes and a central London house in Mayfair.
I don't have a Mercedes sports car, but I do have a McLaren, a collection of classic Ferraris, a Bugatti or two and a warehouse full of priceless vintage cars. My personal chauffeur is parked outside right now in my custom Bentley.
And finally, if you think I am going to cut 3" off the end for you, you are sadly mistaken...just send the bottle back!"
