It's unbelievable how well organised and financed all of this is.
Look at: http://www.crimes-of-persuasion.com/Crimes/Business/nigerian.htm
under the victims section there's the story of someone who lost over $400K
to this scam!!

It plays to those who normally try to dodge taxes, nothing on paper, quick
silent cash deals exclusive of VAT - you know the type; the 'Dell Trotters'
of this world (from "Only Fools & Horses", if you go back that far). I'm fed
up arguing with them, because I put EVERYTHING through the books, and sleep
at night. I'm amused to see them caught. Mind you, I'd like to see the
Nigerians caught too.
