If you don’t know what “wire wire” is, you should read the paper James Bettke and I just published, Wire-Wire - A West African Cyber Threat.

If you came here in order to learn how to do wire wire, you should rethink your life - wire wire is just plain stealing, and wire wire boys are just thieves. At least with yahoo yahoo scams, the “yahoo boiz” could pretend they were just cheating the greedy, or taking back from rich westerners, whose banks would replace the money. But with wire wire, no one puts the money back for the victims, and they are not greedy - they are just businesses trying to pay their employees, and people from countries who never did anything to hurt Nigeria or West Africa at all are losing their livelihoods to fraudsters.
