More Educated, More Greed?

A staggering RM20mil - that is how much Malaysians have been conned by African tricksters in the past few years in at least 11 internationally known scams ranging from Black Money to inheritances which promise non-existent wealth.

The statistics, provided by Bukit Aman, also showed that most victims are, ironically, educated people such as lawyers, accountants, academicians and even politicians who somehow were convinced that they could become instant millionaires by investing with these people despite all the publicity about such scams.

These con men, who preyed successfully on gullible Malaysians, are from Nigeria, Liberia, Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Senegal and Sierra Leone.

Conclusion - educated people are proven to bloody greedy!
