    Very interesting article indeed. That's not so often we have an inside coverage of these scammers. I've been several time to Lagos and it's the worse place I've seen and Nigeria is one of the most corrupted country. I understand why some of the educated people there are willing to leave. Too bad they are just scammers.

    How about this from the article?

    Their anthem, "I Go Chop Your Dollars," hugely popular in Lagos, hit the airwaves a few months ago as a CD penned by an artist called Osofia:

    "419 is just a game, you are the losers, we are the winners.

    White people are greedy, I can say they are greedy

    White men, I will eat your dollars, will take your money and disappear.

    419 is just a game, we are the masters, you are the losers."

    "Nobody feels sorry for the victims," Samuel said.

    And this just burns me up!

    Nigerian authorities, extremely sensitive about 419 crime, say the scammers are mostly from other countries, and that any Nigerians who participate do so because of high unemployment and, above all, the greed of victims.

    He sent 500 e-mails a day and usually received about seven replies. Shepherd would then take over.

    "When you get a reply, it's 70% sure that you'll get the money," Samuel said.

    Wow, this is unbelieable!
