Just goes to show that the true "cost" of these 419 scams can be more than just lost money.

Please forgive if this is "old" news:

Pastor's wife going on trial in slaying

"Her lawyers have said the Winklers were victimized by a swindle known as an advance-fee fraud, or the "Nigerian scam," in which victims are told that a sweepstakes prize or some other riches are waiting for them if they send in money to cover processing expenses.

No one has said how much money the Winklers might have lost, or what role if any the financial strain might have played in the shooting."

For anyone interested, there's an article in Slate.com about this today, but I guess it's a kind of old article reprinted: http://www.slate.com/id/2163780/[/url]
