Nigerian 419 scammer gets 20 years in jail

Prison WindowNigerian national Peter Maxson Anyanyueze has just been sentenced to 20 years in prison by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) at Germinston Regional Court in South Africa.

According to several media reports, Anyanyueze received the following sentence: ten years for fraud, ten years for money laundering, and two additional years, which will run concurrently, for contravention of the Immigration act.

The scam seems fairly typical: Anyanyueze sent out emails requesting help to manage his cash. The scammer claimed he earned 10.5 million bucks from precious metal sales. His millions, he claimed in the email, were being held in a security company in South Africa, and he needed a third-party to move it out and invest it in Europe.
