AlwaysWoW! For a Great Great WoW in Life

Thoughts from me about things that are cool, that are WoW, that blow me away. Observations about businesses and people from a wide variety of life. Daily encounters - and thoughts outside the box, inside the box and without any box. New thinking, and challenging old thinking. Passionate about life, about respect, and about integrity.

Anatomy of a 419 scam

We all know about the Nigerian scams, right? And we all wonder, how people can still fall for it, despite all the warnings, and the experiences shared by others. The Register provides a great piece of work, really outlining how a story in the UK evolved. Together with the e-mails that were exchanged. A bit lengthy, but worthwhile the read.

Well, it is a real life experience and somehow, the guy didn't loose too much money. There are other stories where people lost all their life savings, and some even their life in Nigeria.

Read it, spread the news and talk about it. Education and communication is everything, really!
