It cannot go unnoticed that when viewing the letters and pictures on this site that of course the predominant colour of scammers featured on this and other scambaiting sites is black. It is only right that people new to area of "419" crime are given an explanation as to why this is the case.

419 fraud is named after the section of the Nigerian penal code which addresses fraud schemes.

Let me be quite clear here; In no way whatsoever do any self respecting 'scambaiters' deliberately target people purely because of the colour of their skin. It is worth noting that it is the 419 criminals who contact us, not the other way around.

419 Eater concentrates on the well known "419" Advance Fee Fraud scam. The fact of the matter is that by far the biggest and most prevalent practitioners of this type of scam originate from the African continent - THIS IS NOT THE FAULT OF SCAMBAITERS. It should be made very clear that in no way do we target people of a certain skin colour; we simply respond to scam emails that we receive

If we expanded to include other types of scams then I have absolutely no doubt that you would start to see a lot of Caucasian people being featured here, but sadly, 419 crime seems to originate prominently from the African continent, again, this is not our fault, it is a sad fact of life.

We are as puzzled as most about why this phenomenon has taken root so firmly, especially in Western and Southern Africa, but there is no question that the problem is not the vast majority of law-abiding people of those countries, but it is a small group of criminals who have taken root there, and it is with those criminals that the problem starts and finishes.

I would invite you to visit the Forum on this site, and see for yourself what sort of people we are, and how we view this issue.
