419 victim shoots Nigerian diplomat

09:58 PM ET (US)
I have never heard of this"nigerian scammers", but i sure aint stupid. I got an email, just the other day from this guy, he calls himself Tommy Jeremiah, well Tommy says he likes my profile pic, on fb. He then goes on to tell me a sad dtory, that he is an orphaned and that he was left a business, laptops and computers things like that. Well, the next thing I know he's telling me that he's in Nigeria, going to sell these laptops and cell phones and that he will talk to me at later date. now i have not talked to him anymore, but im waiting for him to email me again to tell me he needs some money, or some information from me, to scam me of course. One of the first things he says is he's in Nigeria on business trip, making lots and lots of money.Im gonna play this sucka, but he dont knoit yet. he done messed with the wrong girl, ill play with his mind and make him think i'll send him money or info. i heard sometimes they send fake checks, to get you to cash them and send them real cash back, then you're cought later with the fake check, when the bank checks the authenticity of it. Im just waiting on what this fool does next, ill let you all know when i know something.

That was murder and he has to pay. He could very easily have convinced the scammer that they had to meet so more money could be exchanged and then, bam!, shot the scammer.

After further review, the palm greased by my enemy is my enemy.

It wouldn't surprise me if *some* Nigerian consulate personnel were in on *some* of the 419 scams. Perhaps they'd recieve a cut of a scam's proceeds for, say, confirming that there was indeed a General Ifoolyu, and yes, his wife and son are in exile.

I'm not saying the poor bastard who got nailed was in on a scheme, but it's a possibility.

Good material for a Law & Order episode, assuming it hasn't been done already.
