Monday, January 01, 2018

A 67-year-old Slidell man [in Louisiana] who served as a go-between for an international team of scammers running a "Nigerian prince" email scheme has been arrested after an 18-month investigation. Michael Neu, who is neither Nigerian nor a prince, has been charged with 269 counts of wire fraud and money laundering. Neu helped shuttle fraudulently obtained money to his co-conspirators, some of whom actually do live in Nigeria, according to the Slidell Police Department.

Can he be sentenced to a Nigerian prison?

Look for the email asking for bail money, which if provided, will open up a treasure chest of vast riches unbeknown to non nigerians.

I was thinking he looked more Cameroonian.

It's been a long time since I heard from the Nigerian Prince. I sort of miss him. Some of his emails were kind of funny.

Don't worry, he's still around. He changed his name to Tremain.

Sorry, but the "Nigerian Prince" was far smarter and much more clever than JTosseRigelMain.

------ said he had relatives that lived in Texas. Connect the dots.
