Following The Bouncing 419 Scam
from the fun-for-the-whole-family dept
Because no one can believe just how often people are fooled by obvious 419 scams, the folks over at TheRegister have put together a story looking at the details of how one works, including the entire series of emailed correspondences. They also checked out the fake bank that the sucker sent his money too, and even spoke to someone claiming to work at the bank, who quickly got upset and hung up on them as he discovered where the phone call was headed. However, as they point out, it was the guy’s own greed that got him into the situation: “He allowed his desire for riches to suck him into a scheme that – even if true – he must have known to be illegal. He has no recourse to law and the 419ers are laughing all the way to their bogus London bank.”
