The 419ers aren't the starving poor - they know exactly what they 
are doing and have got the resources to do it.   And they have no 
scruples about ripping off fellow Africans either. Getting rid of 
them might be doing the majority of Nigerians a favour.

Nigeria's a big country. Nearly everyone there is poor. But there 
are still a great many rich. And not many of them got rich honestly.
