I've been real busy lately, but news such as this always makes me jump back to the forum.


Politie pakt Afrikaanse internetfraudeurs op in Den Haag

DEN HAAG - In een internetcafé in Den Haag zijn maandag twee Nigerianen en een man uit Burundi op heterdaad betrapt op internetfraude.

De beheerder van het café aan de Beeklaan schakelde de politie in toen hij zag dat de klanten zogenoemde oplichtingmails verzonden en beantwoordden. De mannen zijn aangehouden op verdenking van oplichting, aldus het Openbaar Ministerie (OM) dinsdag.

In de e-mails staat dat de ontvanger een prijs in een loterij heeft gewonnen. Als hij de prijs wil incasseren, moet hij eerst geld op de rekening van de zogenaamde loterij storten. De beloofde prijs wordt vervolgens nooit uitgekeerd. Achter de afzenders van de mails schuilen veelal West-Afrikaanse netwerken.

Het OM doet op grote schaal onderzoek naar oplichting door deze criminele netwerken. Sinds oktober 2006 zijn al tientallen verdachten aangehouden, die ervan worden verdacht mensen via e-mails geld af te troggelen. Afgelopen voorjaar deed de politie in Amsterdam een grote inval in een uitgaansgelegenheid waarbij ruim honderd illegalen, voornamelijk Nigerianen, werden opgepakt.

De slachtoffers die aangifte hebben gedaan van de fraude, betaalden grote geldbedragen aan de oplichters, variërend van 8500 tot 2,5 miljoen euro. Geld dat wordt verkregen uit deze fraude wordt veelal gebruikt voor andere criminele activiteiten, zoals bancaire fraude.

Short summary: three shysters were busted after the café owner reported them to the local autorities. The rest of the article deals with the mechanics of scamming, and the size of the problem.

I believe the café owner reporting folks is new, never heard of it before.

Whilst I don't read Dutch
een loterij heeft gewonnen

I figured this bit out. The Lotto Lads mass caper has just lost another 3 Lads.

Hopefully a full translation will be forthcoming

Quick edit : very quick translation (you'll get the gist of the article):

The administrator of the café to the Beeklaan involved the police force then he saw that the customers sent so-called swindle mails and answered. The men have been apprehended on suspicion of swindle, thus the Public Prosecution Service (Public Prosecution Service) Tuesday.
In the e-mails stands that the recipient has won a price in a lottery. If he wants receive the price, he firstly money must deposit into the account of the so-called lottery. Promised the price is vervolgens never paid. Behind the shippers of the mails mostly West African networks hide.
Public Prosecution Service does study into swindle on large scale by these criminal networks. Since October 2006 already dozens had suspected has been apprehended, that becomes of it suspicious people by means of e-mails money finished at trough yolks. Last spring did the police force in Amsterdam a large irruption in a place of entertainment where wide hundred resistance workers were taken up, mainly Nigerianen.
The victims who have done declaration of the fraud, paid large money amounts to the swindlers, varying of 8500 up to 2.5 million euro. Money that is obtained from this fraud is mostly used for other criminal activities, such as banking fraud.

I am not too good at translating, but here goes:

Police arrests African internet fraudsters in The Hague

THE HAGUE- Two men from Nigeria and one from Burundi were caught in the act of committing internet fraud in the internetcafe in The Hague.

The owner of the cafe on the Beeklaan notified the police when he saw that customers were sending out and responding to fraud emails. The men are arrested on charges of fraud, according to the Disctrict Attorney last Tuesday.

The emails say that the recipient won a prize in a lottery. If he wants to receive the prize, he will first need to deposit money into a bank account from that fake lottery. The promised prize will never be delivered. Besides the sender of the email you usually deal with mostly West African networks.

The DA is doing research to these criminal networks. Since October 2006 dozens of suspects have been arrested, of whom is believed that they tried to swindle people out of their money through email. Last spring the Amsterdam police conducted a search in a bar, the result was the arrest of over hundred illegal immigrants, mainly Nigerians.

The victims who pressed charges, paid great sums of money to these criminals, ranging from 8500 to 2.5 million Euro. Money that is obtained from this fraud is mostly used for other criminal activity such as banking fraud.

As I said, I do not have much talent for translating, but it may be an easier read that Babelfish English.
