Why do so many account frauds and scams come out of Nigeria along with it's immigrants? In my e-mail i have received countless spam e-mails about wealthy people in need of transferring their money to me. Of course i always delete such e-mails immediately.

So, did he open the bank accounts in Japan himself or did he have accomplices here to do it for him? Probably our local friendly criminal groups are involved too.

The best that has ever come out of Nigeria - Uzodinma Okpechi - "I Go Chop Your Dollar" . The 419 anthem easily found on Youtube. I actually like the song.

The country has tried to police the fraud rackets, but corruption and weak law enforcement allow fraudsters to thrive.

Fraudster? Are we making up new words again? Toss it in the bucket with the hipsters, I guess.
