I have looked for a similar post and found none. So here it is.

It is interesting to know that for our lads prices are not that expensive.

Please notice how scanning is the costliest expenditure we can inflict on them!!!!

I wonder if the lads have some sort of use as much as you can in exchange of a share of the profits.

edit:I've noticed I forgot to write down the link - sorry

Interesting, so if your lad fills in a 100-page Western Union terrorism clearance epic, and scans each page, it's cost him roughly 20 dollars to send it back, plus cafe time to upload all those attached images. It's a good career for a lad, form-filling. Smile

In a country where the average individual income is only $560 per year, paying over $1 an hour is a helluva lot.
Compare it to the average Joe over here working all day and then throwing all the money he's earned into surfing for an hour. Shocked

The problem is that the heavyweight lads over there usually pay nothing, doing their scamming out of hours, sometimes using threats against the cafe owners (those that aren't complicit, that is). It's often only the small-timers who get hit for these costs, or are affected by them. If it helps prevent their graduation to bigger things though, it's all good.

The thing is, the lads get a lot of money from their scams, sometimes millions of dollars. So I imagine the price of internet time is only a big deal to the ones who haven't caught any victims yet.

Yep once they get their first fish, then it is all gravy from there just as long as they dont have a long dry spell.

So it is up to us to make sure they have long dry spells!!!!!

Mod Edit: Unnecessary full requote of Slightlyoutofit's post removed.

Dont anyone forget that these scammers have a far higher income than the average. Its the same with beggars there. They hobble about on crutches during the working day, then throw them to one side, leap into their ferraris and drive to their luxury homes.

Yes, I'm sure that's right. Rolling Eyes It's the beggars who are pulling the average income figures all across the developing world to such astronomical levels.

Here is another bit of tactical information for a baiter's use: http://www.world66.com/africa/nigeria/lagos/internetcafes

This website lists 9 cafes in La9o5, the physical address, their prices and an email address of the operator. One may be able to correlate an IP from an operator to a lads IP or at least be fairly confident that it came from that cafe??? <just supposition on my part>.

Note this receipt my lad gave me for internet time:

200 Naira per hr. Seems on the high end according to that link above.
