And so stupid these scammers are. Can they not think of more plausible stories ?

200.000.000 Pounds... OMG.

 

Once i was queueing behind a mother and daughter at a post office counter. They were about to transfer money to Nigeria. Fortunately the p.o.clerk warned them about a scam and advised them to not transfer money to the scammer. They didn't do it finally. Talked to them afterwards, couldn't believe they were so stupid to trust that person in Nigeria.

Advanced fee frauds, more commonly known as 419 scams, originated from Nigeria and are as old as the hills.  Before you ask, the '419' part of the name comes from the section of Nigeria's Criminal Code which deals with that particular sort of fraud.   How anyone ever falls for them defeats me, but they do.  I guess it's pure greed. Remember, if it sounds to good to be true, it is too good to be true.

Thinking of clicking like but I, of course, fear being criminally responsible for something I played no part in!

Things are really bad when a person can't accept a gift from our Nigerian friends on behalf of charity without contacting the police

I think it is good that the man contacted the police. It has now been brought out into the open and we are blogging and informing. 

 

People do fall for these scams, including farang in Thailand. The more this stuff is publicised the better.

 

Carry on the good work I say.

My wife was recently contacted by a different scammer. His profile was a handsome white guy from the UK. When I reversed the guys first and second name and searched on Facebook, up popped a teacher from Cameroon teaching at a Thai school.

 

I feel fortunate to live in a country that allows me to say avoid people from West African countries. Admittedly, I can't say much else.

 

 

I will BS on this one. Totally made up.

Things must be looking up. Forget the negative press about all the millions of Thais who can't handle English - more and more of them are no doubt scrubbing up fragments they still remember from school so they can better get to grips with FaceBook.

 

Now all that's left is to sit back and see how many of them actually nibble at this classic 'Nigerian' scam - it's a whole new thing for them after all!

The smartest of the stupids con the dumbest of the studips - hasnt it always been like this in all levels of the society, the only difference is that the tricks get less sofisticated and more transparent the lower the divisions are and vica versa...;)
