What is the biggest scamming country?
While Nigeria is most often the nation referred to in these scams, they originate in other nations as well. In 2006, 61% of internet criminals were traced to locations in the United States, while 16% were traced to the United Kingdom, and 6% to Nigeria.


What is a Nigerian Yahoo boy?
Yahoo boy (plural Yahoo boys) (Nigeria) A man who carries out 419 fraud.

Emmanuel Nwude is a Nigerian advance-fee fraud artist and former Director of Union Bank of Nigeria. He is known for defrauding Nelson Sakaguchi, a Director at Brazil’s Banco Noroeste based in São Paulo, of $242 million: $191 million in cash and the remainder in the form of outstanding interest, between 1995 and 1998. Wikipedia Born: Nigeria3.bp.blogspot.com/-INusYGVioZk/WudqXYqBxJI/AAAA... Criminal penalty: 25 years for fraud case Criminal status: Released in fraud case, but currently in custody on murder charges Known for: Defrauding $242 million out of Banco Noroeste and alleged attack on the Nigerian town of Ukpo Partner(s): Emmanuel Ofolue, Nzeribe Okoli, Obum Osakwe, Christian Ikechukwu Anajemba and Amaka Anajemba

Once upon a time, before he carried out the biggest scam in Nigeria (and the third-largest in banking history), Emmanuel Nwude was an average guy who worked as the Director of the Union Bank of Nigeria. In addition to regular income, that job gave him access to a lot of classified documents and information. In 1995, after he quit his job as Director of the Union Bank of Nigeria, Nwude used the inside information from his former job to pretend to be Paul Ogwuma, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Then, the fake Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria convinced Nelson Sakaguchi, a Director of Brazil’s Banco Noroeste to buy a stake in Nigeria’s newest airport—which was just about to be built—in the capital city Abuja for around $242 million. If the Brazilian bank Director got in on the ground floor before the airport was built, claimed Nwude, he would get about $10 million in commission as well as the dividends of his airport investment. Eager to cash in on a sweetheart deal, Sakaguchi paid Nwude (pretending to be Ogwuma) $191 million in cash and $51 million in outstanding interest.

Unfortunately for the Brazilian bank Director, the Abuja airport was a complete fiction. But, by the time he figured it out, Nwude (and his accomplices) fled with the money.

Tobechi Onwuhara the Wash Wash King !

In his ancestral homeland, Onwuhara might have been a chief. In America he became one of the world’s most successful cyberscammers, a criminal genius who used his talents to filet a poorly regulated banking and credit system. In less than three years Onwuhara stole a confirmed $44 million, according to the FBI, which believes the total may be anywhere from $80 million to $100 million. All he needed was an Internet connection and a cellphone.


Onwuhara called it “washing.” He’d set up a boiler room in a fancy hotel (the Waldorf-Astoria was another favorite) to wash information on wealthy victims. Then he’d wash bank accounts. One group in his crew would do online research using databases and websites to harvest names, dates of birth, and mortgage information. They’d build profiles of victims for a second group, who would call banks posing as account holders. The callers cadged security information and passwords. Then Onwuhara would breach the accounts and wire funds from them to a network of money mules he had established in Asia. The money would be laundered and wired back to his accounts in the U.S.


Is Hushpuppi richer than Davido?
Davido’s net worth is estimated around $16million while Wizkid is estimated around $14 milliion dollars with a difference of only $2 million between the two. Hushpuppi has been estimated around the region of $20 million dollars.

The world’s wealthiest scammers who were brought to justice

Abdulrahaman Sambo Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli His Excellency Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli is among the most visible diplomats in Bangkok, and that’s not only because of the elegant traditional outfits that make him stand out in a crowd. The highly educated Nigerian ambassador has been an active member of the local diplomatic corps since coming to Thailand in November 2017. “I enjoy my work here and I am happy. What’s more, the Nigerian mission here is accomplishing our tasks and mandate,’’ said Mr Bamalli in a recent interview at his embassy in Bangkok. During the course of the interview he explained that Nigeria is no longer a big consumer of Thai rice, but is now importing Thai rice processing equipment and expertise. He sees many more opportunities for next-level cooperation between Thailand and his oil and gem-rich nation. Background The ambassador was born on June 8, 1966 in Zaria city of Kaduna State, which is one of the oldest provinces in northern Nigeria. “It is an emirate, founded by my great-grandfather around 1804. Prior to that, it was a part of various kingdoms and settlements. But from 1804 there has been an emirate system operating in the whole of northern Nigeria, and it is still in place today. “My late father, H.E. Nuhu Bamalli, held the princely title of Magajin Garin Zazzau. In the English translation it is much like lord mayor. The title is given to the second most senior royal family member in the Zaria emirate. “On October 1, 1960, Nigeria became an independent state. My father was an important figure in the struggle for independence. He was appointed a junior minister in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) in 1960 and in 1965 became the Foreign Minister. In fact he addressed the UN General Assembly in New York that same year. “After his passing in 2001 at the age of 84, I took over the Magajin Garin Zazzau title. However, since I am still pursuing my career I don’t stay in the emirate to oversee a district like most of the title holders. Therefore, I only retain the title and then advice the emir from time to time when the need arises. The emir assigns some responsibilities to me, especially representation in functions that he is not personally attending. “I took my primary and secondary education in Kaduna city and then went to Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria to study law. That’s my first degree; I also have a Master’s degree in international affairs and diplomacy, and I’ve taken courses at a number of educational institutes at home and abroad, mostly for short programs on leadership. I attended Harvard and Oxford universities as well as Northwestern University in Chicago and the University of Pennsylvania. “Most of my professional life has been in the banking sector, even though I studied law and international relations. From conventional banking I moved to Nigerian Security Printing and Minting, which produces our currency as well as security papers for the Nigerian government. I held two positions there: executive director of corporate services and general administration, and subsequently, managing director on the board of directors, where I served for almost two years. “After leaving the minting company, I went back to Oxford University to study. I was at the university when the present government invited me to be a part of the transitional committee in Kaduna State. After the transition period I was appointed to the Electoral Commission in my state, and a few months down the line I was nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari to be Ambassador to Thailand. So as you can see, I came to diplomatic service in a roundabout way. “I joined the Nigerian foreign ministry in late 2016. This is the ministry where my late father and other top pioneer diplomats laid the foundation of foreign service in Nigeria. I accepted because I’ve always felt a connection with foreign services, and with my family and educational background I’ve found it very easy to adjust to this position. My younger brother is a career diplomat. He is currently an assistant director at the MFA’s Trade and Investment Department. He has served in Ireland and Ghana and is now back in Abuja (Nigeria’s capital), waiting for another posting.” “Personal “I have a big family in Nigeria and I communicate with them regularly by mobile phone. In fact, every morning I see my mother on the mobile. “I lived many years in Lagos, which is much like Bangkok. It is quite busy, a lot of traffic and densely populated. That’s why I am not bothered about the traffic in Bangkok. You could say Lagos is a commercial city like New York and Abuja is more like Washington DC. It is the administrative capital, with about six million people compared with 20 million people. I enjoy working in Abuja, but I also like Lagos. “I’ve spent 26 years working in the banking, telecommunications, manufacturing and public sectors. And this is why after attending an intensive 4-month course at the University of York, I was made a Senior Chevening Fellow, which is honor bestowed on people with significant professional achievements.” Mr Bamalli is also an alumnus of the Harvard Business School, where he earned a GMP in 2011. He holds the royal title of Magajin Garin Zazzau, the second most senior princely title of the Zazzau Emirate. “In closing Mr Bamalli said: “I am happily married to Mairo A.

My biggest fear about the U.S. election isn’t that Donald Trump will win, which is a real possibility given the craziness of American politics these days.

No, my biggest fear is that Trump loses, declares the election rigged — and refuses to leave office.

If that happens, then the U.S. could be facing a constitutional crisis and another civil war — literally — with hardline wacko supporters marching through the streets with their assault weapons at the ready as Trump holes up defiantly in the White House.

An unlikely scenario? Nonsense?

Maybe, but constitutional experts say that if it does happen the U.S. would be in uncharted waters with no real rule book for legally removing him from the Oval Office if he refuses to go quietly.

Increasingly, many Trump analysts express concern over the U.S. president’s strategy of firing up his base by ranting about the Nov. 3 election being “rigged” because of scandals around mail-in ballots, which would mean it could be months before the final results are available.

As always, Trump has no proof of that, but it doesn’t stop him from fomenting anger and fury with his base, which believes he can do no wrong nor say anything that isn’t true.

The possibility that Trump would refuse to leave office after the 2020 election has become more serious in the last year. It is gaining credibility by the fact that Trump has said nothing to dispel such concerns.

Michael Cohen, who was Trump’s former lawyer and personal fixer, warned during a congressional hearing in early 2019 of trouble ahead. “Given my experience working for Mr. Trump,” he told lawmakers, “I fear that if he loses in 2020, that there will never be a peaceful transition of power.”

In an interview this past July with Chris Wallace of Fox News, Trump bluntly refused to say if he would accept the election results. “I’m not going to just say yes,” Trump said, adding “and I didn’t last time either.” He was referring to a 2016 presidential debate in which he also refused to say if he’d accept defeat, declaring: “I’ll keep you in suspense.”

One of the top U.S. legal experts on the presidency says it is sheer folly to believe Trump would go easily if he loses.

“Should President Trump lose in the 2020 election, don’t expect him to concede defeat — it is simply not in his DNA to do so,” says Lawrence Douglas, a law professor at Amherst College in Massachusetts, who has written a book about this issue titled “Will He Go? Trump and the Looming Election Meltdown in 2020.”

Douglas told PBS that Trump’s recent comments about possibly delaying the election “should concern all Americans, regardless of political affiliation … The fact that Trump lacks the power to delay an election — only Congress could do that — provides cold comfort. The very idea that he would float the idea smacks of authoritarianism.”

It’s this authoritarian streak in Trump that most worries constitutional experts. They believes he is capable at stopping short of nothing to keep himself in power.

Indeed, there is no provision in the U.S. Constitution of how a president should be removed if they lose the election and won’t hand over power to the winner. But it’s also hard to imagine the FBI storming into the Oval Office and hauling a handcuffed Trump into a waiting police car.

A more likely scenario is one where Republican congressmen place so much political pressure on Trump that even he realizes his time is up.

Until that happens, though, Trump could certainly make mischief, Douglas wrote recently in the Los Angeles Times. “He could, for example, encourage his supporters to take to the streets, triggering counterprotests met with ugly displays of federal force.”

Douglas believes the best hope for ensuring Trump goes quietly is for Democratic candidate Joe Biden to trounce him in the election. “Anything short of that will aid Trump in rejecting defeat and igniting an electoral crisis the likes of which we have not seen in our history,” Douglas argues.

It’s a dire thought, and one that makes me even more fearful about this election.

Below you can find our inflation adjust list of 5 richest drug lords of all time. Who says crime doesn’t pay? For methodology and our discussion please see the first of this article. 5. The Ochoa Brothers: $6.78 Billion

Jorge Luis Ochoa Vásquez, Juan David Ochoa Vásquez and Fabio Ochoa Vásquez are among the founders of the Medellin Cartel. Jorge Luis Ochoa paid a small price for his wealth. He surrendered in 1991 and served only a 5.5 year prison sentence. If this guy invested his wealth in Apple Inc (AAPL) shares after serving his prison sentence in 1996, he would have been the richest person of all time. Juan David died in 2013 and Fabio is currently serving a 30-year prison sentence in the United States. Fabio is seeking early release from prison. Even if he is unsuccessful, he will be released in a few years anyway. 4. Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar: $7.57 Billion

Catch him if you can. Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar is an Indian drug lord who has been wanted since 1993. He is #3 in FBI’s world’s most wanted fugitives list. Even though he is free, we don’t think he lives like a billionaire in Pakistan as claimed by the Indian government or wherever he is. 3. Semion Mogilevich: ~$10 Billion

For some reason Semion Mogilevich is also very elusive. Colombian drug lords are probably very envious of Asian gangsters and drug lords. The 74 year old Mogilevich is believed to be freely living in Moscow. He is the boss of the bosses of Russian mafia syndicates. He derived most of his wealth from “weapons trafficking, contract murders, extortion, drug trafficking, and prostitution” according to the FBI. 2. Amado Carrillo Fuentes: ~$28.26 Billion

Amado Carrillo Fuentes became the leader of Juarez Cartel after eliminating his boss Rafael Aguilar Guajardo. Unfortunately he died after a plastic surgery operation in 1997, trying to change his appearance so that he can enjoy his billions. He should have instead moved to Russia. 1. Pablo Escobar: ~$33.91 Billion

Don’t tell us you didn’t see this coming. Several founders of the Medellin Cartel were already listed earlier in our article. You should watch the Netflix series Narcos to learn more about Pablo Escobar who changed the image of Colombia for ever.
