'I Will Eat Your Dollars' - Los Angeles Times: "The e-mail scammers here [Nigeria] prefer hitting Americans, whom they see as rich and easy to fool. They rationalize the crime by telling themselves there are no real victims: Maghas are avaricious and complicit.
To them, the scams, called 419 after the Nigerian statute against fraud, are a game.
Their anthem, 'I Go Chop Your Dollars,' hugely popular in Lagos, hit the airwaves a few months ago as a CD penned by an artist called Osofia:
'419 is just a game, you are the losers, we are the winners.
White people are greedy, I can say they are greedy
White men, I will eat your dollars, will take your money and disappear.
419 is just a game, we are the masters, you are the losers.'"
