Not a lot they can do?
The US army saying that they aren't interested in going mob-handed to A.N. Other country to kick seven buckets of shite out some people who have pissed them off?
That's a first.
The Lads from Lagos have struck again, this time posing online as US servicemen at war overseas in order to become "romantically involved" with American women fond of a man in uniform and then "prey on their emotions and patriotism". “We are seeing a number of scams being perpetrated on the internet, especially on social, …
You have to have someone in a neighboring country threaten to kill your daddy.
Then you get your own queda to elect you president, ignore intelligence about an impending attack on your own soil, djinn up some faux intelligence about WMDs, and then you can go kick some butt.
That's my take on how it's done. Watch for someone in Cameroon or Chad to say something vague about Sarah "Going Rouge*" Palin's daddy, wait 3 or 7 years, and then we can fix what's wrong with Nigeria.

Nigeria would make a really good place to make the worlds largest lens.
Just think of all that fused sand!
The Army can do something - several things probably (aside from setting their cyberwar guys loose on the scamming b'stards) they could at least try an education/outreach programme on these various sites, pose as a blatent 'soldier seeking rich lonely and gullible woman' and give them an idea of what to look out for.

Actually every population has a few speds or these 419ers wouldn't waste time composing broken english emails. Still I guess merkin girls have a bit of a rep in at least Europe. Here is an oldie but goody about the subject.
May I suggest that one take a page from our Muslim brothers, and when a 419'er asks for a picture of the "lady", provide him with one of a female wearing a burqa.
Then tell the fool that in order to see her 'in the flesh' he must make payment of $100,000 USD.
Ask him to send his banking details.

Isn't Holland that big country next to Germany? That is the Dutchmans favourite dream/joke!
I love the Dutch when they take the piss out of the Germans, they never get the irony ... in their National amthen, they all sing along: "We are of German blood"!
Ja, jullie zijn van duitse bloed, dat zegt je volkslied .... LOL Nou, wat is met mijn toetsenboord gebeurd?
Disclaimer: I am not German, I am not Dutch (obviously) ... I am a Brit - anon because, well you know, I live in Holland .... ;-)
