There is an e-mail spam scam sleazing around the Internet, and although the indecent
proposal might appear ludicrous, it's cost some people more than money, including one
American's life. The scheme is called the "Nigerian Advance Fee Fraud" or "4-1-9" fraud,
named after the section of the Nigerian penal code dealing with fraud. It's one of the
most dangerous Internet scams ever, and it's growing in popularity, experts say.
I am always glad to read that a fool and his money are soon parted. The fact that this crime is perpetuated from my country is also proof that we the supposed fool can also take advantage of "smart" westerners. As you can justify sending arms, pollute my environment, support despots and pontificate about democracy when it suits your interest in my country. The more we shall continue this financial terror, against you, that intended to take advantage of mine society.
Where I come from those are considered fighting words. Your comments are foolish, but I have noticed that foolishness and poverty are unfortunately tied together. Maybe Nigeria will one day be able to increase its prosperity and bring itself up in the world. Or maybe angry, bitter rapscallions like yourself will wallow in pity and prevent that from happening.
