419 scammers are not nice people, they are thieves,
liars, and generally very nasty, therefore you can expect
some small use of adult language and themes when dealing with
them here. That is not to say there are any explicit pictures
here - there isn't, but if you are very easily offended then
please go HERE
PLEASE ALSO NOTE
Scambaiting is not a racist activity. Anyone
with racist views is most definitely NOT welcome on this site.
419eater maintains a ZERO TOLERANCE policy towards
racism throughout the site and forums.
It is important to understand that scambaiters
only respond to scam emails we receive. Unfortunately is is
a sad fact of life that the majority of "419" scams
do in fact originate from Western and Southern Africa - we
estimate 50% - 55% of "419" scam attempts are sent
from Western & Southern Africa - but these scams also
come from places such as England, Spain, Ireland, USA, Canada,
The Netherlands, Australia and many more.
For the most part these criminals are not,
"poor people trying to scratch a living", but are
very prosperous compared to their law-abiding countrymen,
and many operate in highly organised, and highly successful
criminal gangs. Millions of dollars are stolen on a DAILY
basis, with absolutely no thought given to victims, who are
losing vast amounts of money, homes, relatives, jobs and worse.
Contrary to popular belief, it is not just "greedy &
stupid people" that fall for these scams.
