E-mails like this arrive in my inbox on a regs, pretty much everyday. I’ve always wondered what actually happens when you send over your bank details, do they just clear you out? Apparently not. When Sarah Jane Cochrane-Ramsey received one of these e-mails she decided to go for it and send over her bank details, what followed was pretty unexpected…

First up, the Nigerian scammer actually sent her money, WTF? I thought the point of the scam was that they took money from your account, not gave it you. Apparently Sarah’s bank account was used as a way of funneling dirty money back to the Nigerian scammers and Sarah was told she could keep 8% of the total amount. Sarah thought fvck it and kept over $30,000 of the cash, gangster. When the people who were originally getting scammed traced where their money was going, they were led to Sarah’s bank account. Sarah is now facing trial for scamming some Nigerian scammers, w-hounded.
