Anatomy of a 419 Scam
June 1, 2006 Leave a comment
I learned WAY too much about 419 scams when I published “Microsoft teams with Nigera to fight scammers” (on my birthday, no less).
The resource links from my earlier article.
- Nigarian Frauds Website, hosted by the Freeman institute. Has a history of the scams. v.interesting.
- 419 Coalition Web Site
Don’t fall for these. These are always false and always a scam. If you get one you think is compelling, check out the sites. If you still think it’s the real deal, call or write me, and I’ll help you research it.
