            Millions of innocent internet users are bombarded daily with scam emails of all sorts originating from Nigeria and Nigerian scammers elsewhere; and a lot many have fallen victims, losing millions of dollars to these faceless scammers in the process. Internet scam, Internet fraud,... advance fee fraud, email scams, dating scams, NGO scams, charity scams - whichever name you choose to call it, it is what it is.

Is there a connivance with legitimate banks and financial institutions? What of the much talked about collusion of organized religion? Is there a philosophy to 419? How do 419ers they think? And what do they think when they think? What do they believe? How deadly are they? In fact, what exactly is 419? How did it start? Why is it so successful?
