Nigerian town where scammers target the West- Robyn Dixon (Wednesday, November 2, 2005)
'They even have an anthem - 'I Go Chop Your Dollars' - hugely popular in Lagos a few months ago when released as a CD penned by an artist called Osofia.'
The young men are as patient as fishermen, toiling day and night to trawl for replies to the e-mails they shoot to strangers half a world away. Most of the recipients hit 'delete' without ever opening the messages that urge them to claim the untold riches of a long-lost deceased second cousin and the messages that offer millions of dollars to help smuggle loot stolen by a corrupt Nigerian official into a British or American account. But the few who actually reply make this a tempting and lucrative business for the boys of Festac, a neighbourhood of Lagos at the centre of the cyber-scam universe. The targets are called maghas - scammer slang from a Yoruba word meaning 'fool' - and refers to gullible white people
From; U.S. ArmyCID, scam warning,
The U.S. has established numerous task force organizations to deal with this and other growing issues; unfortunately, the personnel committing these scams are utilizing untraceable email addresses on Aca,!A'gmail, yahoo, aol,Aca,!A? etc., routing accounts through numerous locations around the world, and utilizing pay-per-hour Internet cyber cafes, which often times maintain no accountability of use. The ability of law enforcement to identify these perpetrators is limited, so individuals must stay on the alert to protect themselves.
So much more can be said about it but I think this will show you enough for now.
This is a photo of some of them at their worst!
