Gomer chopped his dolla! Very Happy

I sure wish we could see a lot more stories like that.

More education out there in the media. The general public needs all the education possible. It's Sunday afternoon and I just watched an NBC
news Dateline/ Chris Hansen 1 hour story on the 419 scam.

He met 2 in London, 1 in Amsterdam. at hotel rooms and a bar.
Trapped scammers on camera were wiping sweat. 1 laddo says "We
don't want this on TV or anything, must be confidential...bla,bla, etc."
Chris Hansen says "Right, we wouldn't want this splashed all over the TV"
as 2 hand-held cameras surround laddo.

I just wonder what kind of sentances they will get. My guess is a very short time, then deported back to their home country, and back to what they were doing before. Repeat process....

ICE seems to be one agency that likes to target scammers. Good work on their part, especially the dolla chop.

Why didn't they arrest Khammungkhune when they first encountered him at the airport?

This is a case where a severe, well publicized penalty could have some impact. Clearly one of the reason these scams are so popular is the certainty the lads have that no one is going to bother trying to catch them and not much will happen if they are nabbed.

I suggest hanging these guys and mass emailing images from the gallows to lads everywhere.

Scammers should be massaged within an inch of their life, then one of their hands should be held to a fire and broken off. That's how I would deal with them.

The news shook the alleged scam artist, who pleaded next for at least one or two thousand dollars. But his whale held firm.

Khammungkhune looked at the old man and the nurse in the airport. "I'm a dead man," he said, and left empty-handed.


Those sound to me like the words of someone afraid of returning to his oga "broke and pocketless". I don't think they've caught the real scammer.

Hi Bait Runner, Smile

Now if that was done, what is likely to happen. All the scammers shut shop and get honest work.

Then where will we be???? No more fun Laughing Laughing

A perfect world! We can dream.

Cheers

I agree the oga keeps behind the scenes and lets his bois take all the risks.

Shame that the one they have caught can't be made to work and pay off some of the money he stole.

^^^I´m not experienced enough to know for sure, that was my first reaction, too.
And yes, I agree the aptest punishment is work.

I know I sound like a lunatic calling for capital punishment or other severe penalties here, but this would provide some motivation for this guy to give up the oga's identity. If he's just going to hang out in a nice American jail for a few months and then get a plane ticket home why would he say anything?

This strategy has nailed more than one organized crime leader in the USA.

this is an excellent news story for our community.

however

Quote:
As the probe progressed, a portrait emerged of the scammers as an organized group targeting the elderly and disabled.


I think we are all aware that scammers will target ANYONE who will part with their cash.

I'm sure the man that was caught was more than likely a low-level crook, but hopefully the authorities can get names etc out of him to chase up his oga and crew.

I hope those of us linked up with Facebook are sharing this thread. It's public and can be viewed by those googling (or is it googleing?).

Edit: I seem to remember Yastreb getting one like this and showing us the format here? English was so bad it became Costumes and Bothers Protection or something to that effect?

Only 5 years in prison. Hell they'll probably have internet access in prison and continuing to do their work in prison. How nice.

Perhaps he should be given the maximum punishment, then offered early release if he agrees to bait some ogas, knowing the inner workings.

@Capt-Hook

Welcome to 419Eater. Please don't necro old threads.
Quote:
Please avoid thread necromancy (that is: posting in a thread that has been inactive for several weeks to bump it back to the top of a forum again). Old threads have usually little relevance anymore. Also, members that posted in it may not be around anymore. If you really want to bring up an old discussion again because you have something of value to add, post a new thread and put a link in it to the old thread. That way people do not have to read through all the old posts to see what is new.


Locking.

Having had the chance to think about it, and based on the putative necroee ( now thats a word you won't find in too many dictionaries Very Happy ) also being the OP and the "necro being an update i have decided that I may have been somewhat premature in locking the thread.

Carry on!
