Soon afterwards, I sent this text to his mobile using EFCC as sender’s name( using special means)
Dear Online Scammer, you have been invited to report to our Lagos office at 15A Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos . In your interest, please report.
As soon as he got the text, he signed off. And am sure he would be restless for the next few days or perharps weeks till the episode wears off and he is courageous enough to have his bath and go to the cybercafe once more.

Had to laugh, It was a loooong post but it was worth it for the end. LOL.

9ja can never change, but before I judge too harshly, I have to remember that these scammers learnt from the leaders of our country that fraud pays.

And if you look under the beds of Obasanjo and the likes,I am sure you will agree too.

It sucks that there are more opportunities in fraudulent scams than there are in employment.

How do I tell Boniface not to do 419 when his wife and 5 kids are waiting for him to come back from the internet cafe and feed them.

Its is the ones here in the UK that disgust me or the ones back home from good families with a good education under their belt.

London is a leveller, that is what people say, and so it should be. But when you get hit on by some no english speaking baba, whose only claim to fame is that he can pop moet at the club, one has to think about the repacautions of being born into a country that seems to take no pride in its legacy....
