Knowing if the person is real or not change nothing as it may be an identity thief. The reason why they mention a "businessman" is because they want to sell you the idea that you may get a rich friend or a gift for the good action (or a possible love interrest as the age put it in the age bracket of women often having lost their husban and have a bit of money set aside).
