To the tune of $2.5 million, using a scam attributed to Nigerians:

Excellent proof of how far-reaching and well organized these scams can be. More importantly, that amusing check scam you're involved in may have a much larger purpose.

Maybe they wanted the money to build the second floor?

Quote:
At least one address listed for the perpetrators in an affidavit filed with the warrant appears to be false. While it lists a Duncan N. Ongaga living on the second floor at 18 Union Ave. in Irvington, N.J., Irvington police detective Chris Jenkins on Thursday said the address is for a church -- and there's no second floor.


Sounds like the thieves used an old fashioned keylogger and simply used the captured bank details and passwords to transfer the money to their own accounts. Then they submitted false invoices to cover the losses. I don't think Nigerians invented this, it's been going on for ages.

Looks like lads have become a convenient handle to hang any type of computer scam on.
