This is the second-weirdest thread I've ever seen in the DC forums.
Strange forums, for our strange listeners, to discuss strange topics. Episode feedback, news, and original fiction!

That's a valuable insight.strawman wrote:I heard a piece this week about why the Nigerian Scam Spammers were so obscenely, stupidly ridiculous. They want to weed out potential responders, to seperate the merely "Incredibly gullible" from the rarer "needs a legal guardian". That made total sense.
Local regulations in the country are very lenient on that sort of criminal activity, and many people there are in dire enough financial straits to consider conning the (perceived to be) wealthy West as an ethically justifiable option, plus the country overall has enough money and infrastructure that computers and cell phones are relatively easy to acquire.pondspider wrote:And another thing... Why is it always Nigerian? Don't these people have any imagination?
It's been awhile since I've been a poster of notoriety, but if you search back I bet you can find stranger ones. (Strawman will back me up on that. We're two of the usual suspects who always get dragged in for questioning.)gunsofchekhovia wrote:This is the second-weirdest thread I've ever seen in the DC forums.
