Why Are People Focusing On Nigerian Criminals?

Why are people focusing on Nigerian criminals ? What about the good Nigerians. I am seek and tired of hearing about Nigerians internet scam and credit card fraud. those this means no one in Nigeria is credit worthy

WASHINGTON - More than 2.8 million people in the U.S. paid to obtain credit cards, claim sweepstakes winnings and get in on lucrative investments that turned out to be too good to be true, officials said Tuesday as they announced hundreds of arrests in an international investigation.

Authorities in five countries have arrested 565 people in fraud schemes that netted more than $1 billion. Many of those arrested are west Africans who were attempting variations of the notorious Nigerian Internet scam, the Justice Department said.

Many of the victims were elderly or immigrants. One scam consisted of telephone calls to Spanish-speaking U.S. residents who were seeking to establish credit and were promised credit cards in return for a couple of hundred dollars. The cards didn't exist, said Federal Trade Commission Chairwoman Deborah Platt Majoras.

In a country of Over 140 million, i can attest less than 1 percent is polluting our image and yet every where you go you hear of Nigerians scammers.

What is the current administration doing to revamp this image?

It's easy to understand why Nigerians are easy targets when negative things are to be reported. We dont have high self esteem. We regard every other race higher than ourselves and we are always ever too willing to condemn ourselves so they do it knowing that majority of us will concur.

How many times do you hear any American saying that Americans are fraudsters and scammers? They are much more fraudulent than Nigerians are. I get more scam phone calls from American companies than any others. You get phoney lotteries that you never played but you are supposesd to have won all from some funny American Companies. It's not limited to Americans, the Brits too and many other nationals but we despise ourselves so they help us to bring us down and damage our reputation.

I am not saying that we should not point out that there are some bad elements within our society but there are good and bad elements in every society.

I'm sorry to cut in and throw in this observation.

In many European countries, the easiest way to spell 'N.I.G.E.R.I.A.' is 419 - I know this because I travel a lot. A reported experience in Sweden made me re-think tho whole question of who really is the dupe: the scammer or the willing victim?

Scenario 1.

A bogus email from a 'popular' or 'well-known' official in a 'C[/b]restal [b]B[/b]ank [b]I[/b]nternational PLC' was sent to a Swedish guy. The mold was the same: a large sum of money was lying in a deposit account in the said bank to the tune of $ ¤¤¤, ¤¤¤, ¤¤¤ (millions of US dollars). The 'official' seeks a foreign partner with high business discretion for the transfer of the funds which was part of the loot from Abacha's family. If this Swedish partner was willing to play ball, his cut would be 10% of the transfer. All that was required was that he indicated his willingness, and had a 'functional' account that the money could be transferred into.

Swedish guy (SvG) makes a few calls to his proposer with the numbers provided in the email. He delays, and after a while he decides to try it out. He further asks a few questions to satisfy his curiosity, and then tries to make his move to follow instructions. Proposer from 'Crestal Bank International PLC' asks if he could confirm SvG's foreign account by transfering some money into it, to which the latter consented. Then $5, 000.00 (Five thousand US dollars) was transferred - and SvG was overjoyed! It just was unbelievable! Pronto, he sent details of his account to his CBI PLC proposer, who promptly acknowledged receipt. Two days later, another $7,000.00 (seven thousand US dollars) was wired into SvG's account, and by this time SvG's trust had been completely bought over. He was offered the suggestion of visiting his proposer in Nigeria for more detailed and 'careful' instruction on the 'transfer' of the remaining funds - all expenses paid, no questions asked. SvG grabbed the offer.

Fast forward.

All seemed to go well, and a forthnight later SvG got a priority mail (as emailing was 'too sensitive for such transactions at this time'), stating that the funds would be 'wired' in batches: first, 35%; then 45%; and another 15%; and that last 5% to another account that he might provide. He did - his wife's business account.

Another two weeks passed. No phone calls, no priority mails, no nothing. Perhaps now, the transfer has 'matured', so SvG went over to see. Both accounts had just SEK67,700 (sixty seven thousand, seven hundred swedish krona, or about $6,780 - six thousand seven hundred and eighty US dollars at the time) left! Then he blew his sirens and whimpered - he'd been duped to the equivalent of $115, 000.00 (one hundred and fifteen thousand USD). Attempts to trace the destination of the transfer revealed that it was not to the Crestal-Bank-International-PLC Nigerian address - it was done right there in Sweden!

Now my question is: who was the crook - the "Crestal Bank International PLC" scammer or the SvG willing victim??

Oh, it was reported that SvG did try to 'check out' if Crestal Bank Int'l PLC really existed - by calling the phone numbers the scammer left him! He was indeed 'careful' - by not initially notifying the police before grabbing the 'opportunity' to be rich. He was really a shrewd 'businessman' who was all too willing to help loot Nigeria's stolen wealth as long as Abacha was dead and gone.

And only when 'kasala' happens do we read it in the news!! That's when you see European and Western media with headlines screaming: "Another [b]victim to the notorious Nigerian 419 scam!" Nobody stops a while to see the European "victim" as equally criminally minded as was the scammer. Abeg, make I hear word. The so-called "victim" deserves to be locked up in jail!!

Certainly there are unsuspecting victims we could sympathise with; but when the issues involved indicate that the European "victim" was willing to grab the offer to be "rich" from stolen wealth, he or she should not be seen as a "victim" but as a criminal!

I think 'Superman' poses a real threat to himself, Africa and human kind in general. He rants and raves like a mental patient on LSD.

It was people with fried brains like his that were responsible for the 7/7 bombings in London. Misguided, out of control, vicious, intolerant, full of hatred and without moral values.

All it takes is a nutter like him to snap and the next day you are reading about the scores of murdered people on the news.

Many of you think his primary school dribble is funny or that he has some kind of street credibility. The only ability this slowpoke has is a major disability. Support him and you drop to his level!

He is the very first person that I have ever put on my banned/ignore list on Nairaland!

The obvious difference being of course that Martin Luther King was a born and raised true American hero whose ONLY home was and is the USA, while our caped crusader is an IMMIGRANT who fled the squalor and poverty of his homeland to seek the privilege of living in the UK and enjoying the benefits thereof, but who is consumed with such pomposity that he imagines himself racially superior to the natives of his adopted country, but not so superior as to vote with his feet and leave for his true home where virtually everyone would be the "right" skin color of his preference.

Drusilla,  even mentioning MLK's revered name in the same breath as that of an obscure whimpering gentleman in leotards and a bedsheet scarf is sacrilegious.

Superman the more hysterical you become, the more difficult it becomes to understand what you are trying to say.  Nobody expressed support for Truwhite's emotional outburst against Nigerians, and to claim now that your own fatwa death sentence on all persons of the white race was in response to Truwhites "challenge" does not ring true.

Even if Truwhite did not retract his call for death to all Nigerians, anyone making a reciprocal bellow against the white race would only wind up sounding just as silly and juvenile as did the first call to arms.  Returning to your abiding hatred of white people, I again remind you that whites constitute a MAJORITY in the UK, and I call on you to put your money where your mouth is and leave the land of the "white devils" to return to the land of your black ancestors, Nigeria, where the area boys, armed robbers, policeman extortionists and pot-holed, garbage strewn streets patiently await your lordship.

It is worth mentioning that if you return to Nigeria and then seek out a suitably remote thatched-roof village in which to live out the rest of your glorious days, your haughty black eyes will probably never be assaulted by the sight of another white person again. I am sure you will now agree that one can in fact create one's own heaven on earth with just a little dedicated effort.  Accordingly I plead with you to LEAVE BRITAIN[b] NOW[/b], for the sake of your own pride and sanity, for you are hopelessly outnumbered by white people in the UK.  Leap back to Nigeria in a single bound right away, Superman, and your honor in the Nairaland community will be immediately restored with a flurry of very affordable chieftaincy title ceremonies as soon as you land back where you rightly belong.

One wonders that African governments even open schools anymore. Since Europe even gets the fruit of African education. Showing another factor in the fact that African can not develop.

I actually feel sorry for the leaders of Africa. Their stuck between a hard place and a rock.

If they attempt to reverse their economy and have the benefits be to Africans. Somebody will be down the road to remove them from power.

If they cut off the goods from coming from Europe and force Africans to turn inward to begin a process of making what they need themselves. The people will have a hissy fit because they do not got the goods they need.

If they go it alone as one nation against Europe, the Europeans will just buy the goods from the next country over or another third world country from across the world. Thus the European always has the upper hand when purchasing goods from an third world country.

So the leader looks around and thinks, I can't fix this.

I just better ensure that my family is not left in poverty after I get through being the houseboy for this European Economy.

He becomes corrupt.

Africans have done the whole anger at one another thing. War after war was fought to win control of the various countries. Then each leader faced with the same system described above would just succumb to the easy route of corruption-- at least you and your friends will be well padded, as Africa is dug out.

A person going back to Nigeria, to fight this Eurocentered economic system there, is wasting their time. That little drop of water in the ocean is quickly overwhelmed.

I'mma be a little person, who believes God for big things.

Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.

Slavery was abolished nearly two hundred years ago! Nobody is going to try and justify this terrible trade which still exists as we speak! Mauritania is one Country in question,

There is a huge African community in the UK. Nobody was forced to come and stay or work. They are free to return to their respective Nations.

Hundreds of thousand of Africans head toward Europe each and every year to try and find better lives for themselves. They are not running away from the White man, they are running towards him! They are running away from the Black leaders who betray their trust and mismanage their Countries!

Since Nigeria gained independence from the UK, there has been more than forty years of corrupt mismanagement by Nigerians. Misery caused by Africans against Africans. This is still on-going and needs to be addressed. You have to look in your own back yard for the cause of the problems. The anger that you and others like Superman show in this forum, should be channeled against the people at home that create the squalor in which many Africans live. Maybe then we will see some changes.

It would be utopia if everybody could live comfortability and securely in their native lands. But I am afraid that this might never happen.

Free labor is cheaper and more efficient than "slave labor".

This is why upon ending the slave trade and then colonizing the rest of Africa, the British began taxing the people of Africa.

It forced people to have to come and work where the British needed them to work.

Unlike in slavery, when you had to provide all the food, clothing and housing of your slaves.

In Free Labor, if the worker starves to death working at your company, it's not really your business.

So this system of Free Labor that the Brits put in, continues to this day, with people working full time jobs and not really able to feed themselves, their food having to be supplemented by subsistence farming, fishing, whathaveyou.

The worker can not benefit, the country can not benefit since the items are going out of Africa. The middle class worker seems to be doing better, but in reality, what he is paid, is sent right back to Europe to buy the goods that he needs.

So Africans are building the economy's of others, as the factorys to make the goods Africans need are in Europe and those companies that do stuff in Africa are owned by Europeans.

Africa does not develop, because this free labor system was not set up to benefit Africa in any way.

They did not end slavery in Africa as an altrustic gesture to Africans. They saw it as a way to see their profits rise.

Mr Truwhite did eventually apologize for prescribing death to all Nigerians, Drusilla, while Superman has articulated deep and long-held prejudices for which he is not about to offer any retractions.

Hey, the guy is free to hate whites till he is blue in the face, but you've got to concede that there is a whiff of hypocrisy regarding his continued residence in the land of those whom he despises with such passion while the option to vote with his feet and return to live among  those he loves remains open.

By the way, I see no racism in your post. Everything you stated was true.

But whites consider it racism if you bring up what white people do in this world.

See my other posts about how they want to be considered individuals.

It is only acceptable to them to see all Africans or African Americans as a group, thus they can blame the whole group for the smallest infraction.

While maintaining innocence for themselves of the many great infractions that whites do.

Toy,

Truewhite has already said: Make different categories for whites, it is the rich whites who stole from Africans.

Truewhite on the other hand says: All Nigerians deserve to die for what this girl and other 419's are doing.

Truewhite claims he is an individual not to be blamed for the ripoff and molest of Africa for the last 600 years, by rich whites even though he greatly benefits from it.

Truewhite also claims that Nigerians however are a group, all worthy of death, even though they get no benefit from what Miss. Spencer did.

This is typical of what Blacks in America experience.

When a Black person does something good, you only hear about an individual, no reference to race whatsoever.

However, let a Black kid steal a candy bar. All Blacks will hear about it for months about what such thieves they are and how they need to stop crying about police brutality and work on getting rid of the thieves amongst them.

Even when we talk about slavery:

A white person has no problem saying this:

I personally enslaved nobody it was Africans selling Africans so don't blame me.

Apparently they want you to treat them as individuals and not blame them but they want you to treat Africans as a group and blame them, all of them.

This has nothing too do with money as that will be and can be replaced. This has to do with respect and I have not had none from anyone of the Nigerians I have spoke too about Miss Spencer, not one of these gutless people nor Miss Spencer has told me the truth and that is what I want from these people.

As for you point about a person with a nail in her/his head I was referring too a point made to me by someone that wrote to me saying that Nigerian are a loving bunch of people. I know that Americans like other countries in this world have bad people but to the landmass and population Nigeria is the worst. You tell me one other country that you find on the internet that has such a bad name?

As u can see truewhite, this post was started to try and sort out scamming problems, not to solve whatever has already happened to u.  take it easy with this ur insults. where did u get that picture from of miss spencer? doesnt she look like a thief? anyway it happened sadly that the only nigerians u got to meet where this so called miss spencer the scammer and the people around her of course which were also scammers. This however has not justified ur point being that all nigerians are scammers. However u may be hurting because of the money that was taken from u, u have to also consider ur own foolishness and work on ways never to repeat it again. First off, how can u be so in love with someone for 15months and never have set eyes on her but only thru pictures, emails and phone calls? Then again why was it that u had to send her money constantly? Didnt u hear of a guy in america that doctors found a nail in his head? That nigerian woman with a nail iin her head didnt happen today. If we are wicked because of her story then americans are wicked too. Get ur story straight before critizisim nigerians. Sorry for loosing ur precious love, time and especially money. Find miss spencer and deal with her dont come here and disrespect other nigerians.

I asked her to back up her story about her mum being in hospital, which she showed me an email from a friend dated a couple of days before. she also had her friends Mr Sunday from the hotel (Days inn and Towers 00234 8054636681) she stayed in back up her story and the people in the U.K. he convinced me she was no scammer and nor was he? as i have said i phoned lots of people here and in Lagos to comfirm she was not scammer.

This has nothing to do with sex, doing my cleaning, doing my ironing etc etc. this was about trust, I trusted this person and her friends all being Nigerian. This was about a future, being as one, being a family, enjoying life to the full. The way a partnership, relationship should be, that is what life is about is it not? No matter what colour he or she is….

In the 15 months of exchanging the words and feeling of love with this person, I have got to know a lot of young Nigerians who use photos of white people because their think all white people won’t talk to them because of their colour. It has never mattered to me where a person comes from, what their believes are. It is what is on the in side the matters and the way their sell them self. I say sell them self because that is what we all do when we exchange ones opinion. I have read the bible but it does not make me a better person. I have read many books about other religions and I have respect for all. I did have respect for people from Nigeria until I found out that most of the people I have talked to are nothing more than a bunch of lying scammers. My opinion has been made clear even more so when a certain person (Odeku) under minds people because of the way he or she spells. If your country is so nice why did you leave, why is it everywhere you look on the web it is about 419 scam? Only this morning I read that women in Nigeria woke to find a nail in her head. Is that what you call loving people?

Truewhite is only reacting the way any HUMAN BEING would react if he/she is betrayed, robbed and made fool of. To think he trusted the lady, loved her, etc., I know it can be painful & frustrating. So let the PERFECT human beings who are immune to anger stop shouting at him. As if you won't do worse if you found yourself in his shoes. *loud hiss* This is a clear scam so no need defending it with baseless arguments.

Nevertheless, truewhite you are a FOOL. Sorry but there's no other way to put it, that's what you are. Only a fool gets fooled this way and with all the awareness and stories going on about scam, you still let someone pull the wool over your eyes, parted with your hard-earned money and gave it to someone you've never seen. Isn't that foolish of you?

Don't defend Nigerian Scammers, they are guilty as charged.

Don't defend White Mugus, they are foolish.

To support any of the two parties involved does not make sense.

Drusilla Please get real she is a tif and a 419 she took his money without any intension of giving it back to him.

Am sure she doe it with many other people not only him.

We all know that Nigerians do a lot of 419, and drugs.

And that is why we have a very bad reputation.

What you are doing is calling a man eating lion a kitty cat

truewhite,

Oh. You shared a true love with a black lady for 15 months but when she needed you, you checked on her like she was a common thief.

Making all the people in her town even know what you really thought about her by all your questions.

I think I might see the problem.

Even the fact that your on the web calling for the deaths of Nigerians. Let's me know exactly why she freaked out and got away from you.

You want to make us think she is a thief but I say she could be no more than a girlfriend who ran off with all the house furniture. Kept the diamond ring. Whatever.

The police evidently agree with me and ain't getting in that boyfriend, girlfriend stuff.

Just because she is a Nigerian, you have racistly assumed she was just a 419.

I don't think the story is that clear cut in this case.

Whatever.

Dear Odeku.

That’s low, to say that because a person can’t spell, he/she does not have a right to an opinion. Next you will be saying that a person with no legs has no right to have the chance to walk or a baby/person with a disability has no right to life? You say that Nigeria is full of loving people, It is a small-minded people like yourself that says a lot about the country.

My story is, I met a young black lady on a web page and over 15 months, every night we shared our love. I thought it was about love and that I was helping her out in her hour of need. I checked her i.p at the start and it was coming from the U.K. I talked to this young lady on the phone when she was in London. She even phoned me when she was in the U.K. even when I spoke to people in Ikeja about her, their all told me she was not a scammer, here and in the U.K. I asked for proof about what she was doing in Nigeria i.e photos, custom papers, passport hotel receipt, she even came on a web cam… I even sent her money in the U.k to prove that she was here, which she picked up. A week later I received a cheque for the money she borrowed and it is fake. She has now changed her phone number and the last words she said to me was goodbye. I have been to the police about it and all their could say was their could not do anything….
