....the boys sent over one million fraudulent cheques and money orders to different people in the United States, for the shipment of goods.


One million cheques :shock: - how long had they been doing this for? Even if they had sent 10 cheques a day for the last 10 years, that's still only 36,500.

Groups of scammers like this probably send out hundreds of checks a day. Someone else could be "trapping" the victim into the scam, and then others are the ones that operate the "mail center".

The really big number is when you multiply what they could do in, let's say one year, by how many other groups of scammer there are out there.
