A 67-year old man in Louisiana is now facing over 200 counts of wire fraud for aiding scammers in a money swindling scheme.
Authorities say he sent targets emails claiming to be a Nigerian official naming the recipient a beneficiary in the Prince's will, receiving over $1 million. Once victims sent details for a wire transfer, the scammers stole their money. Unless you know you are related to Nigerian Royalty, I wouldn't suggest sending your account information or it may just land in Louisiana.
Surprisingly enough, Nigeria hasn't fallen victim in name to the scheme, but is rather an overseas co-conspirator, receiving the funds from the Louisianian. That's right, some Nigerian scammers are so proud that they gladly claim the thefts as their own! Then again, every prince has his crown.
