Scams -Nigeria and the challenge of cybercrime

An interesting article, a bit non-mainstream when it comes to cybercrime in Africa. The Nigerian commission admitted that cybercrime was a challenge difficult for its Government to tackle. Not often authorities admit that. (27 August 2008)

although one can validly argue that victims are now really fools to fall for 419 scams after all the publicity surronding them for the past few years. (22 August 2008) “Nigerian Official Blames The Victims Of Nigerian 419 Advance Fee Scams”
