"I go chop your dollar" 419ners and Mugus

ABC's 20/20 featured a program on Nigerian 419 on Friday (12/08/06) at 10 p.m. Eastern Time. For a preview... click HERE!
This is really sad, but let's reflect on this Nigerian scam issue for a minute!

Here is a quote from the program -
Lagos - "a corrupt, crime-ridden DISGRACE of a city"!
And i'm like "was that called for?". Not that I am sticking up for the 419ners who have and will continue to rubbish Nigerians in the mud, but there are many notable Nigerians in the U.S. who are working hard for their daily dollars: entrepreneurs, professionals, even some fighting the on-going war on terrorism in Iraq on behalf of American people. Many Nigerian Doctors and Nurses are in critical positions in hospitals around the United States. They won't do a documentary on the good ones - That's my beef and here is more!
MSNBC had it's own review on the Nigerian Email scam HERE some months ago. Dr. Phil had his own filler of "Nigerian 419" a few weeks ago and I hear there will be more in the new year 2007.

Well, the real victims in all of these are the ordinary Nigerian people who are being scammed by those in government. They have hijacked democracy and are flaggrantly enriching themselves by stealing from the public coffers. The Nigerian government pays lip service to fighting corruption under the guise of "EFCC"; whereas this outfit has become a state sponsored tool in fighting it's perceived political enemies, both real and unreal. The final word here is that those in the Nigerian government are the real 419ners! and the Nigerian people are the Mugus! The Nigerians being caught in these videos and the gullible Americans are all actors & criminals in this big political and financial scam called 419!

Are you guys really reading this? Please post your comments!

It's a shame... but I think by now people should have stoped falling for these scams. The day people wise up to the fact that it is greedy and foolish to respond to those emails, the scammers will be out of business.
