Talk about karma, an Australian woman who was working with Nigerian scammers to scam unsuspecting car buyers has reportedly scammed $30,000 from the scammers themselves!
According to Austalia's Courier Mail, Sarah Jane Cochrane-Ramsey had provided the Nigerians with a bank account through which their ill-gotten gains could be funnelled. Cochrane-Ramsey was supposed to keep 8% of the money received from a con the scam artists were running on a car sales website. But the 23-year-old decided to just keep $33,350 to herself.
The best part of this story was when her “employers” realized they had been scammed, and decided to report her to the police! She was charged with aggravated fraud, to which she pleaded guilty.
