We've seen this image before, when Armin Heinrich swindled a handful of rich folks into shilling out $999.99 for the non-functioning, useless I Am Rich iPhone app. The app was taken down by iTunes, but not before Heinrich made a few bucks for himself off of it.
Now the I Am Rich app has been reborn, as a framed print sold in a gallery in Hamburg, Germany. According to Valleywag, Hamburg is a port city that is home to more millionaires per capita than any other city in Germany. One of the purchasers of the original I Am Rich iPhone app lived in Hamburg. Wonder if he'll bite at this hoax too.
