The answer to the above question is simple. They want MONEY. They want all the money you have. That is just for starters. They will expect you to empty your bank account and all your savings accounts. They will expect you to stop and cash in any savings schemes you have. They will expect you to sell everything you own and give the money to them. It doesn't matter if you only part own it, like your house. So long as you have financial control over its disposal then they will want it. They will want ALL of it.
But all the money you have is not enough. Not enough by a long way. Even if you have given them everything you have and have even remortgaged your house they will want more. They will pressure you into taking out loans and will even arrrange them for you. They will tell you what lie to tell to obtain the loans. They will accompany you, of course, to make sure you don't back out of it. They will pressure you into borrowing to the maximum possible extent. They will insist on going through your finances in detail to find out everything you earn and everything you spend your money on. They will work out how you could spend less, such as fewer holidays and less spent on leisure activities. They want to know the maximum you could afford to pay a week in paying off the loan they will pressure you into taking out. They will arrange for you to take out the maximum loan that you can possibly afford to repay, and they will take all that money off you. They want it now, of course, not tomorrow or next week. If they think you can borrow $100,000 then they will want you to take out a bridging loan with your bank. Forgotten their telephone number? No problem. The registrar will phone directory enquiries and find out for you. They will then phone that number and put the phone in your hand while it is still ringing. They will watch you closely as you talk to the bank manager and arrange the bridging loan. They will tell you what to say when the bank manager asks you what you need the money for.
But all the money you have and all the money you can borrow is not enough. Not by a long way. They will want to know if you have any trust funds set up for your children by their grandparents and whether you have financial control over them. If so they will arrange for you to cash in those trust funds and give the money to them. They will tell you what to say. They will find out the telephone number of the firm keeping those trust funds. They will then phone that number and put the phone in your hand while it is still ringing. They will look at you closely as you talk to them.
But all the money you have, all the money you can borrow and all your children's money for their future is not enough. Not by a long way. They will want to know how much your parents will leave you when they die. They will want you to talk to your parents to persuade them to hand over all or part of that money now, to them. Not next year. Not next month. Not next week, but today. They will ask you for your parents' phone number. They will dial that number and put the telephone in your hand. They will be looking at you intensely to make sure you say the right things to your parents and ask them for the money. And if your parents agree to give you money then they will want it staight away. They will work out a way they can get it transfered from your parents account to your account and then to theirs in less than an hour. They will get you to phone your parents again and to pressure them into doing it. They don't have a fax? Well what about them phoning up their bank to tell them they are coming, taking a taxi there to sign a form for an electronic transfer of funds to your account. Also to contact your own bank to find out when the transfer has cleared. And then sign the forms for the transfer of funds to their account.
They want MONEY. They want it from YOU.
And if you think you will ever get anything of worth from them in exchange for giving all this - then you are an even bigger fool.
