Good on the Dutch for acting on 419ers.
AFP reports that 111 West Africans were arrested on Saturday in Amsterdam, as part of a seven month long investigation into Internet fraud.
That's a good start, but the Dutch police reckon there are over 2,000 'Net fraudsters active in the Netherlands so there's plenty to go still. However, they are being very soft on the 419ers apprehended: apparently, the 111 are in the Netherlands illegally, but despite that, only eight with false papers were kept in custody. The rest were released.
Something tells me it'll be hard to persuade the rest to appear at the police station again.
Also, expect a mass mail-out soon from the released 419ers trying to capitalise on the lot that were prosecuted...
