from the article, about the victims of the fake online bank:

They were then persuaded to hand over their cash on the promise that it would be multiplied in a West African scam and funneled back into the fictional accounts.

Well, they just lost my pity points. Being promised a high interest rate is one thing. Being promised that your money will be involved in something nasty...Well, I suppose that's another thing entirely.

Still, it shows us to be very careful in any research before commiting our funds.
