Nigerian Prince Scammer Arrested In Louisiana

January 2, 2018

Seen here looking far more like the kind of person I'd expect to be getting scammed instead of doing the scamming, 67-year old Michael Neu of Slidell, Louisiana does a poor job looking up at the camera for his booking photo, presumably because his back hurts and the police wouldn't let him put his orthopedic shoes on.

Michael Neu, who is neither Nigerian nor a prince, has been charged with 269 counts of wire fraud and money laundering.


Neu helped shuttle fraudulently obtained money to his co-conspirators, some of whom actually do live in Nigeria, according to the Slidell Police Department.

The ubiquitous scheme, which begins when an email is sent to an unsuspecting recipient the scammers claim has been named as the beneficiary in a will, is designed to collect personal information that is then used to steal money and identities online.

Man, how does a 67-year old man get involved with a Nigerian prince scam? Because that's what I want to know. You think he was initially a scam target but caught on and told them he wants in on the action? This is going to keep me up all night. Plus, you know, my anxiety. Read me a story to help me relax? "Sure, this story is called 'Every Mistake You've Ever Made'." Awesome, the same one I always read to myself.

Thanks to Thaylor H, who agrees somebody really needs to come up with a new scam. I'm thinking something alien related.

    Hey atheist girl, The QuiQi man, and Meh,

    I haven't seen you guys since last year!! (HYUK YUK)

    Okay, see something funny on this page? A post about a Nigerian scammer has a post from a nigerian scammer in the comments. Life...she is ironic.

    I still much rather be scammed by this nice looking fellow degenerate than a degenerate in Nigeria.

  • GeneralDisorder

    That's nationalist...

  • Meh

    I don't give a shit.

  • GeneralDisorder

    That's good. I don't either.

  • TheQiwiMan

    I want a movie about this man's life. There is just so much here I can't begin to understand.

    succinctly put. Brevity is the soul of wit. And yeah, he would've been better off selling the rights of his life story than continue to scam innocent men and women.
    It has happened, and is happening to a sweet, frail elderly lady next door
    She thinks she's found love, anyway, to prevent TLDNR I'll just say that these con artists know who to target...elderly widows, young adults that don't know it's a scam. Oops, I went too long, but it's a hot buzzer issue for me and anyone else that falls prey to them.
