Why Doesn’t Snoskred Use Her Real Name?

The short explanation goes something like “I baited the Nigerian scammers, and they would love to know who I really am – they might end up on my doorstep”.

The longer explanation – too many details for most people! – is that three Nigerian scammers spent time in a South African jail cell, because of a sting that Snoskred was a part of. Snoskred had one Nigerian scammer arrested by the secret service in New York – he was deported from the US. Snoskred was also a part of a group who assisted the South African police in investigations including kidnapping of scam victims. And, Snoskred got some Nigerian Scammers to paint their faces, with butterflies. And a few other things, too..

Snoskred has collected over 5 million US dollars in fake cheques from the scammers. Generally in law enforcement circles it is believed that it costs the scammers 10% of the dollar value on the cheque – they have to pay that to the people who counterfeit the cheques. If that is true, Snoskred has personally cost them over half a million dollars.
