‘Yahoo Boys’ Have 419 Facebook Friends
Earlier this week, I wrote about an online data theft service that got hacked. That compromise exposed a user base of most young Nigerian men apparently engaged in an array of cybercrime activities — mainly online dating scams and 419 schemes. It turned out that many of these guys signed up for the data theft service using the same email address they used to register their Facebook accounts. Today’s post looks at the social networks between and among these individuals.
