More money idiocy.

Chemist shop is innocent victim of a “Nigerian” scam. I highlight the word innocent as the people who have handed over money to con artists are certainly guilty, if only of gross stupidity.

I wonder if imposing a publically advertised tax on money spent on “advanced fee” scams would make the idiots who fall for them think twice. Possibly not as such people pay so little attention to the stories of people who’ve been caught in the past, that they fall for the same tricks. What really gets me is that there is frequently no shame on the part of the people who recount tales of being taken in by such obvious fraud.

We were talking at the weekend about this. People fall for these things only too frequently, sending fee after fee. Surely they should have twigged on the third or fourth attempt?
