Has any on else noticed that all 419 emails on gmail are accompanied by adverts for wire transfers and WU payments. Makes you wonder if some of these companies are surreptitiously trying to profit out of fraud.

I believe they target the adverts to topics you frequently discuss in e-mails.
You probably agreed to it, in the size 1 font, before you ticked a box.

Gmail/Google ads are determined by key words. The fact that the google ads show up for Western Union for so many scams is because so many scams include them as part of their wording. (wire transfer, etc.)
Look at some of your other emails on different topics and you'll notice the same pattern with the ads.

I usually never look at the ads apart from the time I was discussing my pals divorce with her, well actually, her soon to be ex.
The ads were for hemorroid treatment and colonoscopies

What if everybody just called it Western Onion? Will we start seeing ads for produce markets?
