Good to know the FBI is arresting Nigerians in Dubai when they could be here arresting terrorists. The Dubai police are certainly up to the task of arresting one Nigerian scammer. I wonder how many agents this took and how much this FBI jolly cost the taxpayers.

The next email you receive from this guy could actually be a real plea for help if you’ll find someplace to stash millions of dollars for him. Of course, he’ll split it with you..

Why not wait until he has completed his time in Dubai (Chopistan?), we can get what’s left.
I suspect the costly US prison systems are much nicer than the others?
