“Woman falls for Nigerian scam, steals $2.1m from law firm” is the headline on the report by Lester Haines. “A bookkeeper for Michigan law firm Olsman Mueller & James has been taken for $2.1m by Nigerian 419 fraudsters, the Detroit Free Press reports. ” There are links to other fraud stories in the piece. And more here, including the wonderful Scamorama site. Apparently the number ‘419’ refers to the section of the Nigerian Penal Code which specifically outlaws internet scams.
