Tonight on channel 9 (Australia) there is an article on 419 scams.
It is on 60 minutes so if anyone is interested, check out the website later.

Just finished wathcing it. I'll say that it was far better than the ACA report, but still glossed over how the scams operate. I suppose it wouldn't be good TV.

They spent a lot of time on arrests of cyber cafe scammers, and a sting operation set up by a tue victim-for-life who admitted to losing over half a million dollars over 16 years.

I recorded the show so I'll be watching it again for the name of an EFCC official whose name I think we'll be seeing in future scam leters.

I just watched it too and was pleasantly surprised with the segment.
Good to see that they are starting to try to get the word out there.
It would be fun to match some of the faces with those in the pictures or hall of shame threads.
