Once upon a time there was a tiny little fake bank with the wonderful name "Globe Trust Bank".
The mugus wasted so much time and energy to create a website for it.
It was a beautiful website - with flash movies and logos from VeriSign and VISA.
They offered "Private Off-shore Accounts", "SECIRITY" and "Haulage".
Even their source code was secured: "Sorry, you do not have permission to right click."

Life was easy for the mugu bankers!

They found enough people to send cash to this bank.
The authorities didn't do anything against them.
Their webhoster was lucky with it's share of 419 and ignored all complaints.
Life was quite easy for the mugus.

They thought "Hey brothas, we dey be happy and rich until the rest of our life, Oooooh!"
But out of the sudden the mugus couldn't find their wonderful bank website anymore.
It was still there, but ... slightly different ...

And this is the end of the story:

All credit to 419 BUSTER for this excellent piece of work and for artists -against_419 for drawing it to my attention. I just wish I had their talents.
