We are supposed to give the Ferengi GPL to transfer EC? The one race whose very lives revolves around making money and we are supposed to give them money to deliver money. Something wrong with that picture? Everyone knows that you can't trust the Ferengi.

I can just see it now:

Fed: Here you go Mr. Ferengi. He is 1,000 GPL to deliver 1,000,000 EC to my buddy Feddie A.
Ferengi: Why, thank you for your business. I will "deliver" the EC right way.

A week later....

Fed: Hey!!! FERENGI!! I thought you were going to deliver the 1,000,000EC to my buddy last week. I even paid you 1,000 GPL.
Ferengi: What can I say...I was "hijacked" in the process of making the delivery. The risk of doing business. It is all right here in the contract you signed...In the event that the shipment is hijacked; the Ferengi cannot be held liable.

Meanwhile, the GPL and EC you gave him is sitting in his safe.
