Experts Dancing on 419 tune

Experts often posses more data than judgement says Colin Powel.

I read this article on Nigerian Scam in Global Politician by one Sam Vaknin with interest. One of the many of such that equate scam with Nigeria. Definitely scam must exist in other places too other than in Nigeria. But experts likes to dance together and as long as the Nigerian Scam tune is playing all experts might as well dance to it all at once. Just well.

I don't have beef with the Nigerian Scam dancing as such but with the statistics. He wrote that:

"Every year, there are 5 (such) murders as well as 8-10 snatchings of American citizens alone. The usual ransom demanded is half a million to a milliondollars."

8-10 snatchings of American citizens? In Scamland Nigeria? From where that data comes from he didn't say. Not just that there is a hint that other nationalities are being snatched as well but he couldn't be bothered to give detail.

Though scam had existed from time immemorial, it seem though that the world's scam experts had resolved to lay the toxic waste of scam at the door step. While large American corporations are being brought down because of huge financial scams and presently the country hosting the most (scamming) websites in the world is USA, the world's scam experts continue their choreographed dancing on the Nigeria Scam tune. Just well.
