Map of 713 "419" Scammers in the UK

Source: Times Online
A Dutch company called "Ultrascan" has created a Google map showing the locations of 713 Advance Fee Fraudsters in the UK (mostly the greater London area) that they tracked down in 2006. The fraudsters always target victims in other countries, and these were primarily targeting the middle and far eastern countries. The UK police almost completely abandoned prosecution of these scammers in 2006, saying that "they preferred to disrupt 419 scammers by taking down their websites and stopping their internet access."
