A term that addresses multiple types of "overseas" activities:
1. The modern-day system used by large commercial aircraft for added safety during flights to foreign countries.
2. Refers to the actions of a scam-king foreigner --- he asks people to send him money "by wire-transfer", and then promptly makes haste to "fly the coop" once he receives the fraudulently-obtained funds.
I got a sob-story e-mail message from a guy from Nigeria, asking me to Western Union him some temporary cash to help settle the multi-million-dollar estate of his terminally-ill grandfather who's on his deathbed, and then he'd share out with me ten percent... yeah, right! Sounds to me like da classic "fly by wire" con-game...
