Nigerian Scams Revisited
If America can be called the land of the scam, then international con artists from Nigeria are hard at work trying to catch up. Although their pitches appear flagrantly false, they take advantage of several weaknesses in human nature like pity for the poor and also an arrogance that no Nigerian could pull one over on a sophisticated American. This new book presents representative and genuine examples of the initial scam approaches, which seem to be rousing victims from the millions of targets of this vast campaign that has been going on for years while gaining in sophistication and cunning. The cases are divided into sections by type and target of the scam.
