Sandy and Sue each has a whole number of dollars. I ask them how many dollars they have.

Sandy says: "If Sue gives me some dollars, we'll have the same amount of money. But if I give Sue the same number of dollars, she'll have twice as much money as I have."

Sue says: "And if you remove the first digit of my wealth and place it to the end, you'll get Sandy's wealth."

If neither of them has more than 1 million dollars, how many dollars do they each have?
