This is the first time regionally that postal inspectors have successfully recovered money that was sent overseas in this type of scam.


First time? Cool. So we're in 2008. And the 419 scam has been going since the 80's, drawing in thousands of victims a month, tens of thousands per year.

The Postal Inspectors can give themselves a well deserved pat on the back. That's one in many thousands. I guess it's a start. Rolling Eyes

Thanks for the link JJ.

That's an amazing result and hopefully there will be more cases like that in future.

Sadly though, the chances of winning a RL lottery are better.

I wonder if the check came from [email protected]. Smells like a recovery scam to me. Wink

Interesting, sending cash may be safer that using Western Union or MoneyGram. Rolling Eyes
