Nigerian Scammers

Dutch police have arrested 52 people suspected of defrauding gullible Internet users in one of the largest busts of the infamous "Nigerian e-mail" scam.
Also known as an "advance fee" or "419" scheme, the scammers sent spam e-mails asking for help in transferring a large sum of money out of a politically or economically troubled country, in exchange for a generous percentage.

From Wired News.
Staremo a vedere. Un po' perņ mi mancheranno le quasi giornaliere email dalla Nigeria inviate da generali, mogli di ministri, ecc..
