Not your normal NAM/immigrant crime

with 42 comments

As reported by CNN, a large number of Nigerians were charged with internet scams, and 17 of them have been arrested in the United States.

They were running all of the scams you are probably already familiar with, but strangely the most profitable scam was posing as good looking men in the military seeking romance from older women, who were suckered into sending large amounts of money to their fake younger online lovers to help them out of made-up jams.

I’d have figured that men would be more easily conned (because some way that men think with there penises), but apparently older men are more likely than women to realize that a beautiful young woman being interested in them romantically is too good to be true and therefore must be a scam.

  1. That’s because all their lives, these women have been accustomed to men mainly/at least wanting sex from them. That’s normal, and these women are at an age where they’re ok with that – they might even welcome it now. But the idea of a man mainly or only wanting money is something most of them haven’t ever contemplated, so their guard is down – plus they’re old people and old people fall for stuff on the internet more than young people do.

  2. The classic is the Western woman who falls in love with a younger Arab or Latin/Caribbean man while on vacation. Why do women fall for this? I would guess it’s projection. A lot of these women imagine that men must be attracted to the qualities they look for in men.

    “No one in my home country gets me, but in Tunisia, my strong personality and career goals are respected!”

    It seems it’s easier for a woman to learn the wrong lessons from her lack of romantic success. Also, romance gets harder for her as she ages, and she might not be adjusting to this reality in real time.

    An old guy going for a younger woman knows that there must be some exchange of value. Money for sex. If he’s giving money and not getting sex, he knows he’s being scammed. If he gives money, she says she loves him, but it turned out all he got was sex with a much younger woman, then that still wasn’t the worst thing in the world for him.

    Also, when it comes to “mail order brides”, a lot of the women in these poor countries really are attracted to the American’s higher status and money, they sincerely do want to start a family with the American they meet. A foreign man going for a dumpy older woman is absolutely only in it for the money and immigration status.

      • Yeah, a lot of the alt right have fairly decent views on reality for women, but are too busy fapping furiously to realize that they apply just as much to men.

        “My male order bride really finds me irresistible!” Grow up.

        I once started a mini riot in the Manosphere by pointing out that men have a shelf life too.

      • @Jesse
        Well, you might be surprised but for some kind of men having a foreign wife is a good bet. I interact with what could be called a professional class men. Significant minority of them are married to a foreigner – part of them by studying here, part brought back from a business trip. I would call it assortative mating (otherwise gone about a generation ago). When you look at family histories of the men/wives and siblings, looks, education, whatever, it is assortative. For those having local woman it is a step down from this perspective, with all consequences associated.
        From my empirical observation, marriage stability and happiness is also better for those married to a foreigner.

      • To be clear, the men who go for true mail order brides (I’m thinking Filipinas in particular — not just meeting a foreigner overseas as krakonos describes) are generally absolute losers who have little to no appeal to American women.

        The women they go for are often also losers back home, though they may compare favorably to American girls due to the War on Beauty (fat, tats, facial piercings) not having made it there. An American 9/10 girl is probably way hotter than a Filipina 9, but a Filipina 4 is going to blow away an American 4.

        For women from a poorer background, the beta provider role still carries weight. These men are often poor providers by American standards, but they still compare favorably to the Filipino men available to these women. And being American has a status all its own.

        Now, do a lot of men get suckered in? Absolutely. And does that “American status” lose its panache after so many years in America? Of course. But to the degree we’re talking about men who have nothing to offer American women, they’re still getting something in the exchange, even if their Filipina wife divorces them after 10 years or so and they have to rinse/repeat with another Filipina. And if the man actually has any game at all, and she happens to have any loyalty, then the marriage has a chance of lasting.

      • The way I see it, a typical American 4:

        Has a slightly cute face.

        Overweight, but not morbidly obese. Doesn’t carry her weight especially well (weak T&A)

        Probably insists on some sort of moderately unflattering haircut. Her hair might be an unnatural color.

        Has a nose piercing (not a septum piercing), maybe one other piercing on her face.

        Has a bunch of tattoos (none on her face though).

        Sort of objects to the idea of prettying herself up for a man.

        The Filipina 4:
        Has not the best bone structure in her face. May need braces.

        Slim (maybe a few extra pounds, but nothing noticeable by American standards).

        Has long hair — the most flattering cut available to her.

        No tattoos or facial piercings.

        Delights in prettying herself up as best she can.

  3. Lion, did you see the video at the New York Post of the guy who gut crushed by an elevator in Kips Bay? The front page of the Post is a still from the video. Horrific.

    I think I’ll take the stairs from now on.

    • Horrendous. I wonder if the first guy who got out was friends with the victim. In the article it says that the other elevator in the building had been closed down, and both elevators had been having problems. Why would the residents put up with this in such a costly building?

      It seems like the sort of thing that would happen in China. Mind you my husband knows of an office building in downtown Vancouver with bad elevators. People keep getting stuck in them and they are never repaired properly. Apparently the building is owned by East Indians.

      • Increasing death by public safety problems is yet another of the glorious benefits of diversity we racists in the West have to look forward to with the continuing de-whitening of our societies, as nonwhites (with the exception of Japanese and South Koreans) lack the ability and/or will to maintain infrastructure.

      • This sort of thing actually happens in NYC every few years or so. The difference this time was the graphic surveillance video footage that the New York Post decided to shamelessly post on its website and plaster on its front page.

        Even with perfect maintenance, there are so many elevator trips in NYC that the odds mean eventually bad accidents happen. There are apparently 35 million elevator trips in NYC every day.

      • NYC is the most diverse city in the world, but only SWPLs lap on luxury in the metropolis. The blacks who deliver their Amazon packages, the Hispanics who make and deliver their food, and the Asians who make their sushi, iron their clothes and polish their nails, are all required to sustain their lifestyle.

        The same group of people telling us that America needs more immigrants, who look exactly like their servants.

        Ok, what, who's this again?

      • “the Hispanics who make and deliver their food, and the Asians who make their sushi,”

        Asians make a lot of other food besides sushi. What I can say about people making food in NYC, Hispanic yes, Asian yes, blacks at fast food restaurants like a McDonalds, but never white people.

  4. Regarding Nigerians, I have a story. A few years ago on a hike I met a fellow hiker who was from a very nice upper middle class WASP family. She did recruiting for some mega-company in Jersey. She told me her entire life was processing hordes of guys from India and Nigeria. The Indians were the basic computer programmers and the Nigerians were project managers.

    I was disgusted.

    • Were they going for affirmative action quotas with the Nigerians? Nigerians have a reputation of being smarter than other Africans, but I’m skeptical.

      • I dunno. This was some years ago but I frankly brought up the immigration issue. She admitted the whole thing stunk.

      • They have a subset called the Igbo. They have a reputation for being the black African version of the Jews or Chinese – higher IQs than the rest of the population, savvy at business, and generally resented.

        I had some of my education in a European country where they had no problem sending people to the classes they belong in. The highest tiers in English and math were filled – relatively speaking – with Igbo, and they did extremely well. Wound up speaking the native language with thick local accents from all the friends they made.

        That doesn’t change the overall racial dynamics, but I do sometimes feel like a lot of people here have insufficient exposure to high IQ blacks, and it’s hurting the cause to not acknowledge them.

      • Possibly. I can’t remember our entire convo but basically I said something like, ‘Can’t you at least get Americans to be the project managers?’ (At that point I knew that the programmer issue was a lost cause, anyway, programming sucks.)

        She responded that her job was to find foreigners and the best ones for project management were Nigerian. She had no power to do otherwise. I accepted that (still do, I realize she’s only a pawn) but I pressed her on it and she admitted she was uncomfortable.

        And that’s all I remember: a story of brutal discrimination against Americans and in favor of Indians and Nigerians, separating those two nationalities into two different job pools. Indians as computer drones, Nigerians as “overseers.”

      • Yeah, going for Nigerians gets around the affirmative action without making them hire those icky African Americans.

        A lot of chickens are coming home to roost. There are a lot of black activists who support importing black foreigners because they genuinely believe said foreigners will support African Americans. They’re completely oblivious to the contempt other blacks feel for them.

        The churches who are trying to runaround native born whites by importing foreigners are realizing their mistake. A lot of the smaller denominations in Europe were crowing about the parishes being revitalized after they replaced those stinky native born whites. They’re now having to close churches, massively scale down on charity or go cap in hand to the govt because the new parishioners are gleefully taking the largesse and paying nothing in.

  6. Black Americans do the romance scam as well.

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/serial-romance-scammer-wilson-jackson-and-the-women-who-took-him-down

    The article, of course, doesn’t miss the race angle, either:

    >There is also the uncomfortable fact that, after decades of scamming black women, Jackson was only arrested after ripping off a white woman. While many of the victims credit Oudinot for the months of work she put into the case, some acknowledge that it may not have been a coincidence.

    Never mind that the white woman, the subject of the story, became “slightly obsessed” (her euphemistic words) with having him brought to justice, finding other victims, and relentlessly hounding the LA detective. I mean, I wonder who contacted the Buzzfeed writer to do this story…

The relationship was real, quite sexual, and not a scam. The lady did not have any money to spare. I knew most of the details, drama because my girlfriend at the time was this lady’s roommate.

    • There’s a “thug” subgenre of black romance novels. In Love with a Thug etc. Urban fiction is entertaining from the outside. I would never read them, though I’ve glanced through a lot of them. There was a series called Bitch. After the first book, the sequel was called Bitch Reloaded. Catchy titles.

      • Curle, it’s a mostly female black readership. But there are even gay male thug books. Black fiction is robust and thriving, and it’s mostly consumed through mailorder, or stealing books from libraries. Blacks, even men, read a lot more than one would think. The reading material has to be 100% blackcentric, though. No interest in anything that is not black black black. Or, wait, I take that back, there’s even a subgenre of white man-black woman black romance novels.

  12. It’s not only black guys.

    I know an 80-year-old widow who became obsessed with her 25-year-old Russian-born ballroom-dance instructor. She kept hinting around at what she wanted, but he always coyly deflected her advances. One day she got frustrated and just blurted out, essentially, “Hey, Dmitry, wanna fuck?” That’s when he told her he was gay.

    Someone else I know – a fortysomething white guy – ended up getting involved with a woman older than his mother. She showered him with expensive gifts and paid off his credit-card debts, so he felt an obligation to attend to her sexual needs. (Viagra got him through it.)
