A Very Old Fence with a Fresh Coat of Paint

Thank you for putting together this article. It's quite interesting to know the history of the so often received Nigerian prince (or princess) e-mails and see how it played out for one individual in history.


I'm glad you enjoyed it, Amanda! I certainly found it to be a fascinating look at how this fraud has evolved over time. Thanks for the comment!


I first remember seeing them at work in the early 90s, they would come in air mail envelopes. Then we started seeing them on the fax machine. They seem to have gone back to faxes, I have seen six or seven in the last month complete with gmail addresses and legal websites.


Hi Lisa! I used to work somewhere where we received at least two of these kinds of faxes every week. Thanks for commenting!
