The article, written in Spanish, has been published in one of the most important Catalonian newspapers' online edition. It states how an "hacker" got hold of this American clown that lives in BCN address book and sent emails supplanting his personality and asking for an amount of money because he's found himself stranded in Africa.

Jango Edwards has requested from Western Union that it blocks any transference bearing his name, but I'm afraid that to no avail.

Well, apart from the fact that the paper describes our lad as a hacker, it is great to see that more and more people are being informed of the whole 419 scam through the mass media in Spain and SouthAmerica.

My only regret is that this might provide inspiration to some and soon there will be letters in Spanish too. Well, we'll be there waiting for them.
