Dutch Police Shut Down Large 419 Scam

from the fighting-back dept

Dutch police have apparently arrested 52 people in an attempt to shut down a large 419 scamming operation. Most of the people arrested actually were from Nigeria. This could get interesting, because in bringing down such a large group at once, they should be able to piece together all the various moving parts in how such a scam was set up. Of course, one wonders if their victims will still believe in their scammers even after all the evidence is shown.
