Recently the law enforcement authorities in Cyber Crime unit in Lagos are constantly revising their strategies in their efforts towards cleaning out scammers from the nation.

Being in anti-virus research we come across lot of online scams that originate from Nigeria. Most of the 419 kind of scams are having their origin in Nigeria. I always wonder about what is happening in Nigeria and how come there is nobody who can catch these people and put them behind bar.
