While Offtopic, I am willing to bet 99% of us have been bugged by this CRAP
and will enjoy the fact that someone is going after these clowns, and at
least one of them is going to JAIL. Now, if I can only get my $25,000 back
from the General Tak Ing Urcash's Wife's, Son's Accountant's Secretary. He
swore my check was in the mail.......

Nigerian '419' scammer sent to prison

A Nigerian conman who tricked people into handing over money and personal
data in expectation of receiving a huge windfall has been sentenced to 20
months in prison by a Welsh court.
Peter Okoeguale, 33, who was arrested in Wales while is the process of
committing one such '419' scam, also faces deportation from the UK at the
end of his sentence.

When arrested, Okoeguale was found in possession of headed notepapers and
forged documents, all created for the purposes of duping gullible victims
and making them believe he was a in charge of a large fortune which needed
to be laundered through a Western bank account.

In sentencing, Judge John Rogers QC said: "You had in your possession a
substantial amount of equipment and carefully drafted fraudulent documents
with the intention that they should be used to fool gullible people."

Handing out the custodial sentence Rogers said "only a period of
imprisonment is appropriate" for a crime which amounted to "international
fraud".

Police investigating the case have tracked down 11 victims of Okoeguale. One
individual in Scotland lost 20,000 to the scam, according to police.

Although sympathy is often thin on the ground for victims of the scam, who
fall foul to their own greed and gullibility, the National Criminal
Intelligence Service says the organised crime rings behind them still need
to be cracked because the money raised by perpetrating such frauds often
funds far more serious criminal activity such as the trafficking of drugs
and people.

At the time of his arrest Okoeguale was based in Ireland where he was living
with his wife and children.
