Robbed by a small minority 

The Oprah Winfrey show did a feature on scams and ehem (clearing throat..) a certain west African country is featured.

Cunning Cons

Oprah obviously expecting protests from the Nigerian community added at the end of the segment
"I know we're going to get a letter from somebody saying that Nigeria has a lot of wonderful people. You don't have to send the letter, We already know that. We're just talking about this particular scam that's going on. We're not talking about the entire country and everybody in the country."
Forgot to post this one from last week

419ers take Kent minister for £12k

I think it was Shakespeare’s Othello who said it
"He that filches from me my good name, robs me of that which not enriches him,
And makes me poor indeed. "

In the end we're all scammed and made poorer by the antics of a small minority who have ruined our reputation

This 419 clamour is getting old. One wonders why the sudden focus on it, like I said months ago, maybe the American media are privy to something that they want to chop down in good time...
I think the person she is refering to in her closing remark would probably be frank nwanker jnr as usual
I think we need to stop 'playing the victim' and drop 'the whole rest of the world hates us' crap.
Dismissing the story doesn't change the facts.
Collectively we've allowed the actions of a small minority of our citizens to define us as a people.
How do we get our country back ?
