Money Mule Exposed

Last time, China Business Watch talks about one form of cheating: Phishing. You can consult this post to know more about phishing and Nigerian Scam
The Nigerian Scam is also referred to as "Advance Fee Fraud", "419 Fraud" (Four-One-Nine) after a formerly relevant section of the Criminal Code of Nigeria, and "The Nigerian Connection" (mostly in Europe). However, it is usually called plain old "419" even by the Nigerians themselves. In brief, 419 is a sub-classification of Advance Fee Fraud crime in which the perpetrators are West Africans, primarily Nigerians, operating globally from Nigeria and elsewhere.
Here we have collected some materials to fight against phishing.
