Bhruic: The only people that could cash the bonds are the person named on the bond, or their legal heir(s). The guy took along a camera crew, and ensured they got a good long view of his company's number on his truck.

While I agree to a certain extent, I think that the value to third parties in observing such things is valuable.

Especially since the woman is recently dead and a cancer victim, and her children are clearly not living the high life.

I think that the lesson for everyone who sees this is more valuable than any 'free' advertising he got.

OTOH, having an elderly friend in the Boston area, I just wrote his number down,
