If you want results from law enforcement, you have to help them help you.

So what's a 419 victim to do?

There are still things a 419 victim can do, the first being to admit that he was foolish and that he is sorry he tried to beat the system.  The second is to file a detailed fraud report as outlined in How To Organize and Write a Fraud Report for the Authorities

Each of these actions will receive far more attention from the authorities than all the outrage and whimpering will ever achieve.  This is another fact of life.  If you've stepped in cow doo-doo, don't just blame the cow.

The next best step is to determine who the 419 law enforcement authority is in your country.  If you hand your report off the wrong authority, it won't find its way into the information system.  I can guarantee it.  In the U.S. it's the Secret Service.  In Canada it's the RCMP.  For more instructions on filing a victim report, please read: How to report a Nigerian scam letter (419 letter)
