image for Nigerians to Prosecute Cheney for Scams
Cheney ashamed he got caught

Nigeria - Femi Babafemi, in charge of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Nigeria, said that Dick Cheney would "definitely" be charged for selling the Nigerians millions of American email addresses. Said Babafemi, "The email addresses he sold me were all to poor people. Cheney said that those were all GOOD addresses."

The problem came when the Nigerian government started using those email addresses to gain access to Americans' bank accounts. Nigerian officials paid Cheney more than $182 million to acquire access to $6 billion in potential accounts to drain. Unfortunately, by the time that the Nigerians put the addresses into use, the accounts had already been drained by the Bush and Obama administrations. The Nigerian officials are visibly and understandably upset.

"Things are getting tough here in Nigeria. It's getting harder and harder to find people who have enough money in their accounts to make it worth our while to use the addresses. Hell, those people in America are more poverty stricken than the people here! We're supposed to do the scamming, but Cheney scammed US!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
