I'd try "search" in any internet browser. Congrats on the progress toward dissertation. Cool

I would start with the Bible... then print off about 100 pages of this website.. "book"? define "Book"...

Edit: ParaNoid said it nicer than I did...

I doubt that you are going to find the book that you are looking for. Wouldn't you rather "interview" authorities on the subject though? Let's say that you were doing a dissertation on investing. Would you rather quote some book or refer to your interview with Warren Buffet? I don't mean to brag here, but we're about as good as you are going to get.

EDIT - Especially the members that have been here for a number of years.

Oh gosh the librarian in me comes out again.....look for a copy of "Cyber Love's Illusion" by Anna Alden-Tirrill. It deals with the 419 love scams.

Now back to our sponsor.

I'm writing my dissertation, too - submitted my proposal and got the first draft kicked back to me already.

good luck with yours!

I'd probably look at some of the literature on why people commit crimes and crimes that are easy to get away with - look at white collar crimes - discuss how this can be similar - and maybe do some interviews with some baited lads....

I'm trying to find the same thing Mr.Luke. I have a long research paper for my Comp 2 class. I'm writing it on Nigerian 419 scams. The hard part is coming up with "Scholarly Sources". I haven't begun researching thoroughly, but through my schools online database, I am able to find tons of articles on the subject (I'm not sure on how good they are yet). See if you can access the ProQuest database. I will keep you posted on anything that I find as well.

Most of the printed sources you will find are newspaper articles; some well done, some frightfully bad. Suffice to say that you will find more accurate info on common scams, including the whys and wherefores, here than anywhere else. I do recommend Shiver's book, "Greetings in Jesus Name".

Ummm, not too sure about that one. I haven't read it, but have seen some summaries that indicate that the author believes that Nigerian romance scammers are linked to Osama Bin Laden and terrorism. Confused

You're not going to get any better than the experts here. I'm not the most experienced here by a long way and I can easily pick holes in any book about 419. The problem is that we don't have any formally recognised qualifications in 419 crime, and so quoting us is not going to carry much weight. As a published author, Shiver Metimbers would have that authority; so you could interview him. His book, Greetings in Jesus Name!: The Scambaiter Letters, is a little short on exposition for your purposes, (but still well worth reading.)

Having said that, 419 Scam: Exploits of the Nigerian Con Man by Charles Tive gives a different angle, and Scamorama: Turning the Tables on Email Scammers by Eve Edelson has much the same information as you can find here, but sanctified by print.

See also an official publication by the UK police: http://www.soca.gov.uk/downloads/massMarketingFraud.pdf

There is also a fascinating piece in The New Yorker, which might be scholarly enough: http://www.newyorker.com/fact/content/articles/060515fa_fact


Fraudaid.com is also worth a look. Especially for the angle from the victim of fraud.

I know of a lot more references, but they are at my office. There is much more recent scholarly stuff around, but a good place to start might be

I'm thinking there was someone around here who was writing a book on 419 fraud and dropped by to get some more content matter... but I'm too lazy to look it up. Razz

@ED Laughing First thing APA style folks notice. It is actually ASR style, which BTW, is probably a horrible attempt on my part with out a style sheet next to the computer.
