The leading Nigerian email scammer was arrested today in the most surprising of places. Nigeria. Interpol had to tip their hat in appreciation to the local police force after not believing several tip offs about his location themselves.
A Interpoliceman said:
We always got the emails saying he was the Prince of Nigeria and what not but it didn't occur to us to check if he was actually in Nigeria. Whole things been a bit of a cock up really.
The suspect named locally as "Mike" was a broad shouldered man, who looked like the sort of bloke who'd give disadvantaged children a piggy back ride at a fundraising event, who smiled as he was led away.
We spoke to Sergeant Success of the Nigerian police force who informed us:
I don't see why we're arresting him. If I got a email from your Queen I wouldn't send her money. People are stupid.
Just before the wagon sped off we got a quick comment from the detainee, Prince Abu Raba Dhamond, and he said of his arrest:
Itwas Not me. I am members of Nigerian royalfamily. Please send cheque for £200000thusand hundred dollar pounds to pay release. I reimburse for £300000thusand hundred dollar pounds upon releases.
Back and to the Left news had to be physically restrained from writing him a cheque. Dam he was good also who was paying for our flight home? If anyone wants to help please go to our JustGiving page.
