Scammers get their own theme tune

I secretly love getting those emails from Nigerian bankers, lawyers and sons of murdered diplomats. But extracting cash from stupid greedy western dumbasses – known as a 419 scam – is actually big business. It’s an industry that has apparently brought in millions to the Nigerian economy. And it’s so much part of society that this song has been very popular over there. It’s called ‘I go chop your dollar’ – where ‘chop’ is slang for eat. You can find out more about it here – including a translation of some of the lyrics.

    I think you missed the point of the video – Seems to me he’s talking about greedy western business people and greedy Nigerians business men. Notice the repeated shot of the oil refinery.
