As many of you no doubt know Nigeria is the home of the majority of the "send me 10,000 US and I will send you 49 Million buy return post email scams. This scamming is a criminal offence under Section 419
An enterprising group of individuals have set up a website to scam the scammers by making them have pictures taken holding rididulous signs,
fill out multi page application and grant forms etc, and even on rare ocassions send them money first to prove that they are who they say they are. It is quite hilarious
The website www.419.eater.com is fantastic and this little Scam Gem gives you a good idea of the intellectual power of the reverse scammers
lol, whoever is dumb enough to fall for those scams, deserves to be scammed themself in my opinion, or there really nice people who dont care about money
More than meets the eye
It is funny making them carry signs, but how much time can you spend on a forum dedicated exclusively to those scams? I can't imagine there would be enough to post about on a daily basis.
