Why 419?

The Los Angeles Times is running a great behind-the-scenes story on Nigerian 419 scams, entitled I Will Eat Your Dollars. I think this is the best thing I've ever read on the subject, as it follows an actual scammers in Lagos. The story goes into detail on how the scammer, Stephen (19 yrs old), got into the business and why it was so attractive to him and his colleagues. If you have any interest at all in the subject, you really should read this article.
