US Warns Nigeria About 419 Scams

from the do-something dept

The US government is apparently so annoyed by all those Nigerian scam emails that they’ve told Nigeria to do something about them “or else”. The “or else” isn’t really spelled out, but I’m a little surprised that the government is so concerned about these things. I’m still shocked that anyone falls for the scam, and to some extent, it’s weeding out the greedy stupid people amongst us.
