Australian Nigerian Scammer Sent To Jail
from the send-'em-all-off dept
Just as an American spammer appears to be facing jailtime, an Australian spammer who apparently ran a “Nigerian” 419 scam has been sentenced to five years in jail. There aren’t many details, but he managed to con people out of nearly $5 million dollar, reaffirming the fact that there really are a ton of suckers out there with way too much money, not much common sense, and an uncanny ability to fall for a scam that, by now, you would think everyone would know about. Of course, as we’ve mentioned in the past, many of those conned by 419ers still believe the con artists were telling them the truth.
