Financial capabilities of the Others

Hey guys,

I wonder if this was ever mentioned in the show or on this site but I don't seem to recall ever hearing about it.

The others seem so have a lot of financial ressources:

- When he was looking for the Oceanic 6, Benjamin Linus seemed to have the means to travel (plane, rental car, fake identities, etc...)

- When he came for Michael, Tom was able to not only travel around, but also rent an expensive hotel room

- While recruiting Juliet, Richard and Ethan didn't seem out of money either (expensive suits, traveling, etc...)

So my question is: What is this infinite source of revenue the Others seem to have? Would it be a mysterious benefactor?

Of course, it doesn't really matter to the main plot of the show but we can talk about it just for fun!
