I just browsed briefly through it but I think this is well written and researched and gives a solid overview about the topic. Interesting and comprehensive summary for both newbs and oldtimers.

This is very enlightening and answers a lot of often-asked questions about the structure of 419 crime.

I think this should be a 'must read' for all 419eaters and they should have to pass an exam in it before baiting. Smile

There's a few things in that article that put Nigerian fraud in perspective.

For example:-
Quote:
On a single day check at Heathrow airport last year, for example, police discovered more than 20 million of forged cheques and postal orders in the courier mail from Lagos.

It's a good read for sure.

I actually brought this up in November last year: http://forum.419eater.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=93366

Probably got forgotten in the panic of the site being down for the two previous days at the time Smile
