Who do that voodoo? Yahoo Boys do!

Just when you think there’s nothing else to be said about the ugly world of Advance Fee Fraud, Brian Krebs offers an array of insights: not only some of the characters – it’s amazing what’s on Facebook these days – but some disquieting voodoo practices involved in ‘Yahoo Plus Plus’. If anyone from Yahoo! is reading this series from Krebs, I bet they’re wondering whether they should rebrand. I look forward to see the next instalment, assuming he survives the ‘Krebs-themed voodoo dolls’.

Well you can stick your little pins in that voodoo doll
I’m very sorry baby, doesn’t look like me at all… (Leonard Cohen, Tower of Song)
