Funds transfer success

If this report about the success of Nigerian email scams is anything to go by, there is no pending shortage of gullible people in Australia.

Perhaps even more alarming though is to learn (from the link) that "Professor Olu Agbi said there were almost 140 million people in Nigeria and fewer than 0.1 per cent were involved." By my calculations, that means up to 140,000 Nigerians are having difficulties with transferring their millions overseas - surely this makes it a significant industry in this poverty stricken nation.

By the way, if you are unfamiliar with the entertainment to be had in baiting the scammers, I recommend this site - it's a hoot.
