419eater

Article in today's Guardian on the the guy behind 419eater.com; not very interesting if you already know about the website. If you don't, it's worth a look.

Nkem,

Thanks!. I got acquainted with the 419eater web site a few months ago. It’s hilarious in one sense, but as a Nigerian on the other hand, pretty much embarrassing.

In reality I have had no sympathy for the perpetrators or the victims of 419 fraud.

It is a case of the crook meets the greedy and gullible - if people still think they can make money from doing nothing apart from through participating in a lottery, they have got it coming.

Meanwhile, I do wonder where they got all those posers with the placards - it all looks too distressing for a second visit.

i agree with akin; I too have no pity for the victims of 419; if you're that thick to fall for such scams then you deserve to be ripped off!
Good ol' 'mike' must have all the time in the world on his hands.
