I have decided that instead of actually trying to read newspapers to figure out what is going on in the world, I will just monitor my 419 scam mail. So far in the past few years, I have got 419 scam variants from major hotspots in the world:
Nigeria of course
And now Zimbabwe.
I am somewhat disappointed to have not received anything from Sudan, and even more surprised that nothing has come from Iraq. I am expecting some mail from the Congo in the next few days...
