Thai Immigration nabs four alleged Nigerian scammers

Scamming, the national sport of Nigeria, is spreading to neighbouring nations. While still not competitive with the strength of the Nigerian national team, the new West African Mug Open should be interesting.

The two Nigerians were possibly the leaders of the "Nigerian Gang" because there two of them.

 

The original report referred to a "Nigerian Scam" gang, that is a gang who used a common scam that originated  in Nigeria.

Having just returned from Thailand I was amazed HOW MANY African ladies are stood on the streets between Soi's 4 to 15.

 

I will be amazed if 50% of them are there legally + there must be a market for them as there are so many.

+1 Tonray, But I am still amazed at the number of people who still fall for these scams. As you say, lonely women, maybe, but as soon as a fee is requested from someone you never met should send alarm bells ringing.

 

Having been involved in the past in trying to make life hard for these scammers, long before the authorities had any interest, the 'love scam' is probably the hardest to wean somebody off of. You can present clear and unequivocal evidence to them that they are being scammed, but invariably they remain in denial. It was much easier to deal with the straight "5 million in a deposit box' scams than the love ones.

Over the years we have stopped several ladies from paying out to this scam.  (We become aware because they ask my wife to lend money)

The most recent was just a few weeks ago when the local farmers wife was trying to find 20,000 to pay for a parcel from her FB lover. She refused to believe my wife and other Thai ladies that it was a scam, and last I heard was trying to find the money. She probably couldn't raise the funds because she still knocks on our door to borrow 1000 every time one of the (her daughters) kids has an incident.

Nigerian scum bags....These people are the the bottom of the barrel.They have no sense of right or wrong and will screw anyone. And so......I will be contacting the Nigerian Embassy to tell them as such. Desperate people do these things- obviously....Never reply nor ever give Nigerians the time of day. Scammers to the nth degree.

Well at least they're into equal opps., no disrimination here, we'll scam you whether your male or female:

 

" ... one of the victims said he was approached via Facebook by a netizen who claimed to be an American female army officer ... ."

 

and they're into good deeds -

 

" ... one million US dollars, was to be donated for students in Thailand ... ."

 

I can see how that might hit all the right buttons with a school director.

I don't approve scams but some people deserve to be scammed! 

Yes, but these guys were obviously working without a proper work permit and engaging in an occupation that is legally reserved only for Thais!!! :sleep:
