    This led them to an apartment near Hua Mark station where they talked to Ugochukwu Benson Ezenwegbu, 26. The Nigerian was taken into the police station along with 1,000 US dollars, four phones, a computer notebook and account books.

    He admitted that he had been sweet talking Thai women into transferring money to him. He posed as a successful businessman posting pictures to support this online. He promised to by the victims expensive goods from abroad and pass on to them.

    Shortly after his arrest a man called Patrick Ebguche, 31, also a Nigerian national appeared at the station. He told police that the money in the carrier bag belonged to someone else and was needed to “help a family who were facing danger in Nigeria”.

    He said that he had contacted Benson to get a Thai bank account set up.

    Never met a Nigerian overseas on legitimate business.. Not to be racist or anything, and I'm sure there must be loads of them doing legit work and stuff..

    Nigeria of course is an OPEC country, with the world's 4th largest oil reserves. But seemingly most of their GDP is comprised of scams and email fraud.

    Any plane arriving from Lagos Airport ought to be just returned back there.

    I get told by many Thais that all black people in Thailand are 'up to no good'
    I'm starting to believe this myth now


    Looks like a Thai football manager unveiling his new star striker

    The second guy had brass balls to enter the police station and try to blag the money back.
    Most of these con men use fake farang profiles and pics.

    the thai women had probably heard tales about the legendary size of black toolage and were distracted into parting with their money by the fantasy of being slipped a length of mandingo meat.

    Online dating site I used had a 'half thai girl' whose profile looked promising. When we started chatting she asked me on the second day that she and her family had now relocated to Ghana

    Alarm bells rang and I blocked 'her'
    The transcript is somehwere in this forum still, on my online dating thread

    I also had the fake webcam treatment, 'she' asked if we could chat via cam, I opened mine, and on her screen appears a really pretty Thai woman walking about her office, occasionally turning to smile at the camera. About a minute in I realised that our messages weren't in sync with what she was doing in her office, ie. she was across the room with her back to the camera going through a filing cabinet while her message was being typed.

    I blocked it. the next day the website posted a message to all members warning of this new style of scam.
    So they stick a screen up in front of their cam to make people think it's her....
    ...and all the while it's an African guy with eyes lit up with $$$$

    Ingenious

    An idiotically prejudiced position of which you haven't been an early adopter?

    How can this be, chinky?

    These Nigerians are OK. I have been talking to one on Skype. Turns out he's related to Nigerian royalty and his uncle is president of a bank. Apparently there's an account there belonging to a British oil trader who was killed in a terrorist blast a couple of months ago. Turns out there is 10,000,000 USD in the account and they want to nick it as no one has claimed it.
    He asked if I would pose as the dead guy to withdraw the money and transfer it to my overseas account and they'll give me 10%. I have to pay 10,000 usd for transfer fees but it seems fuck all when you consider the return.
    I'm going to be flush soon.
