Just like any other Blog, Crime Online gets it’s share of comment spam. Most of it is the usual type pushing anything and posting some kind of comment which has nothing to do with the blog at all.

Now and then we get comment spam from the Africans themselves and the one we got today was a good example of a typical loan scam. We traced the post to an African Internet provider.

It’s in Portuguese but it basically says the same as all loan scams, cheap loans from 20000 to 20 million US Dollars.

One point to note, is the fact that the Africans often like to make reference to anything religious. They often use the title of “Reverend” to give the impression that you are dealing with a man of God. Here they make a quote of trusting in God to give us great gifts. The gifts of course, are your money in their pockets.

Of course, the Africans are only after fees. A loan, as such, never gets paid out.
