Comments on: Who’s behind those Nigerian email scams? http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2009/07/21/whos-behind-those-nigerian-email-scams/ Beyond the World news headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:09:42 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Ian http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2009/07/21/whos-behind-those-nigerian-email-scams/comment-page-1/#comment-10115 Wed, 22 Jul 2009 17:46:04 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/global/?p=4964#comment-10115 I remember seeing a funny youtube video that shows a Nigerian president hitting the send button right as gunmen burst in and shoot him. I’m sure these scams will get more complex as the situation in Africa deteriorates. Personally, I would not do any business with Nigeria because there are so many sophisticated scammers. These people are scaring away investment and impoverishing their country.

This days, most foreigners associate ‘Nigeria’ as a psuedonym for Scam. What a pity that geniune Nigerians who are honest and work hard for their income also bear the brunt of an inglorous few ‘bad apples that are spoiling the whole bunch’.

I refuse to open them, but see what they are, I do the research and send it back to the person who forwarded it.
I keep telling them its scam and don’t open them, but they don’t listen.

Its getting old!

They should read a book or do something more productive than sitting around a computer attempting to enrich themselves through criminality and laziness.

Put the scammers in jail or under it. Spend the money on educating Internet users of email to not respond to any messages online that asks for personal information. IF you are a valid member of a business asking for information, navigate to their site, Use your already established ID and PW, then pursue the matter. /s/Larry
