When Nigerian Scammers Get Scammed – Global – The Atlantic Wire

leave a comment »

In easy irony news of the day, an Australian woman was in court on Thursday facing charges of “unknowingly” stealing more than $30,000 from Nigerian scam artists. The Australian Associated Press (AAP) reports that Sarah Jane Cochrane-Ramsey allegedly provided her bank account to Nigerian scam artists so they could use it to funnel payments they received through their account on a popular car sales website. Cochrane-Ramsey was supposed to keep eight percent, but reportedly kept the $33,350 (around $35,000 US) in payments the cons received. Scammers getting scammed is nothing new, but how on earth are people are still getting hoodwinked by Nigerian scammers? Cochrane-Ramsey will be sentenced next month, the AAP reports.
