from www.419legal.org:
What is the annual loss associated with the Nigerian 419 Scams?

According to statistics released by the FBI, annual losses around the world exceed US$ 200 million per annum.

I'd say it's pretty freaking profitable. There are publicly traded companies that make less than that.


So, half of the population might go for it?  Sounds like 419 is a
profitable business!
