    IIRC, Newsweek did a story on this recently. Apparently most of these scams do originate from South Africa and Nigeria, where IT education is actually comparable to that in the Philippines.

    Hindi din small-time ang mga gumagawa nito. Many of these scammers have milked out enough money to acquire various properties and vehicles. And they're not even doing this part-time but full-time.
