Dutch courts lock up 3 Nigerian scammers

Seeing spammers and scammers get their dues is always a welcome thing. Thus, this next story was especially charming, with Dutch courts deciding the fate of three Nigerian Internet scammers that were arrested a while back. The scammers partook in various schemes and stood accused of stealing a lot of money from the victims they preyed upon. As a result, the Dutch courts have seen it fit to convict them and sentence them to jail.

Not all of them received the same sentence, but at the very least this very small drop in a sea of scammers was punished. While I can't exactly feel bad for someone lured in by Nigerian inheritance scam emails, it is still bad news for the Internet as a whole and hopefully we will see more scammers taken care of.
