He has to require the $50 because otherwise he would get massive amounts of submissions from everyone. I think he returns the money to you if your correct.

That is how some criminal tip lines with massive rewards are handled. They charge you a decent fee and only return it if the tip turns out to be a decent tip. That way they help weed out crazy people and liars but not normal people.
