Quartz: The latest alleged “Nigerian prince” email scammer is a man in Louisiana

Quartz: The latest alleged “Nigerian prince” email scammer is a man in Louisiana. “You know the email: A Nigerian Prince is in trouble, and he can pay you handsomely if you’ll help him—that is, he can pay you sometime after you wire money to his account or hand over all of your bank information. The scam is by now so well-known that it has become a common trope in jokes. But a recent such scam departed sharply from the caricature when police made an arrest very, very far from Nigeria.”
