    "he said some parents are even colluding with young suspects, which police officials say can be as little as14 years old"

     

    These scum are useing their kids to commit the crimes, thats why the parents have the bank accts. cars and houses.

    cause they know if the kids get caught the law will go easier on them.

    I read an article recently about Nigerian scammers that said some actively recruit younger people into their business since many of them are computer literate. In many cases, the parents don't even know what their kids are doing. The kids see easy money and sadly go for it. Glad to see Jamaica is cracking down but most likely, they'll just pop up somewhere else.

      Darn, and I thought Montego Bay would be a nice restful, peaceful place to vacation. I've heard all about the Nigerian scammers. Guess this won't end

      until every country on earth, is getting their fair share of scamming action.

       

      Here a scam, there a scam...everywhere a scam...scam...scam.  At least spam is better than a scam.   Spam

      put them in the organ donor camps along with all involved. grind the leftovers into special recipe cat food. will that deter others from robbing the stupid?

        Yes, I believe you got that right, and as long as the cash keeps flowing in, w/ no interference,

        why would would they stop ?

        new buisness model ?

        yes, even if it has to relocate every now and then.

            You deserve a GOLD STAR Star  for that INGENIOUS idea! Organs can be sold on the black, or even free market for millions, which could be used to

            further the fight against these squirmy scamming parasites.

                    This article reads:  "Police Commissioner Owen Ellington has said that other scam suspects arrested earlier this year have since been released on bail, frustrating investigators."

                    Why aren't they reporting securing assets that amount closer to a few hundred-millions total?  I hope they track down the financial accounts (whatever country) that the big monies are being held in and are able to confiscate them [instead of big screen TVs & small change stuff] and publicize that they are returning them to a few of the people who REPORTED and PROVED being scammed.  Lastly, will these eight, evil, criminals ALSO be released once they reveal names of additional scammers who have been their neighbors within the subdivision, etc. or whatever?

                    I Agree! Just last month my cousin in Auburn Hill was scammed ,these low life theives ,they  need to be prosecuted to the fullness and give a jail sentence that make them think about the choices they made whether their kids or adults. These scumms played the loan game and I must say money gram knew these scums was running a scam,but they say they could not tell my cousin because they wasn't at liberty to tell people who was senting moey to the destination it was fraud. The police said, they wasn't even where the calls was routed from . They was in whole different  country.The bottom line they need to be put on notice not only the country their in but America too That whatever assets will be seized.Bandit
