Irate chickens assault 419 scam banks

Happy Chinese New Year

Those readers interested in taking down scam 419 banks might like to proceed directly to Artists Against 419, which yesterday launched a 48-hour, chicken-themed Flashmob against the Lads from Lagos' online presence.

Chicken-themed? Well, the whole thing is to celeberate the Chinese New Year. As the blurb puts it: "The Artists would like to invite you to the Chinese New Year Flashmob on the 9th of February. We will be attacking resilient Chinese hosters as well as a crop of the normal run of the mill fake banks and lotteries."

Simple as that. Slip into your chicken costume and get on the offensive here. ®
