Current Status

This blog is not frequently updated because most case-by-case scam reports are now listed in subordinate blogs. At this point in time, most of my efforts are targeted at documenting employment scams in the Suckers Wanted blog.


Advance Fee Fraud: Richard Yengeni

Spare me! I can't get through reporting all the nasty lies without another one arriving in the meantime! Oh well, at least 419s aren't hard to spot or classify. This is the standard tale of someone with millions seeking a "business partner" to assist in the spiriting away of the funds. We've heard it all before a thousand times at least -- only the names change. This was sent directly to the contact address for this blog from (in Italy, so far as I can tell) on Thu, 19 May 2005 01:06:47 -0000.
