Ghana and Internet Fraud

Interesting video on Ghanaian internet fraud, including Sakawa Romance Scams and Shopping Scams: Internet Scamming in Ghana. Though it’s more about the cultural context than the details of the scams. Doesn’t really make the connections it could with Nigeria and the 419, either. But does touch on the social and economic problems in regions where fraud seems to flourish, irrespective of whether it’s Africa, Eastern Europe, South America…

Hat tip to ESET Ireland for drawing my attention to it.
