    Two jailed in “Nigerian letters” fraud

    George Agbinone and Ovie Ukueku, were sentenced yesterday to prison terms of 3 ½ years and 12 months imprisonment years respectively. They had pleaded guilty to a £½ million advance fee fraud through the use of so called “Nigerian letters” where victims were offered a percentage of a large, but phantom, sum of money for assistance to transfer these sums out of West Africa.

    lol, people are always trying to earn some easy money .

    I guess that's why this "scammers" can do their business.. One friend has been scammed several times and he has not learned yet, he's still looking for the quick way to get rich, if he had saved all money he probably had been rich today .
