    Cybercrime and Business Email Compromise Conspiracy trial starting Monday

    You know that Nigerian prince that emails you and tells you that there is 18 million dollars waiting for you; all you have to do is send them 1500 to get the ball rolling? Well, some of them go on trial next week in Memphis.

    I will be out of pocket for a few weeks, and here's why:

    Too bad it takes so long to track down and prosecute these felons.

    The speaker in this Ted Talk has built a comedy career out of messing with these people. He has a whole YouTube channel of stuff like this:

    I hope things work out well in this case, lionround, and that everyone on the prosecution side has all their duck in a row.

    Sadly, I know people gullible enough to fall for these scams.

    Well, he wasn't the Nigerian prince sending those emails after all. Mea Culpa.

    However, he was Nigerian and he was perpetrating a scam.


    1. Business Email Compromise. That is hacking a business email account in order to steal login or financial information.

    2. Wire Fraud.

    3. Money Laundering.

    4. Marriage Fraud.

    5. Witness Tampering.


    He will be sentenced in June.
