It seems that the Nigerian scammers should have checked the references of their Australian accomplice much more carefully to make sure they get what they want. According to the local media reports, the scammers carried out an online car fraud, for which they used a Brisbane woman named Sarah Jane Cochrane-Ramsey, 23, as their Australian front.
Sarah Jane Cochrane-Ramsey insists that she wasn’t connected with the Nigerians and had no idea they were scammers: her part in the deal was only to provide them with a bank account and get 8% of the takings for her job. Nevertheless, after the scam netted $30,000 from their online car sales racket, Cochrane-Ramsey changed her mind and decided to get all the money and go spending spree.
As you might understand, the Nigerian scammers couldn’t complain to the police. However, the car buyers that found themselves ripped off did complain to the police of Brisbane. The authorities were fast enough to find the woman and knock on the door of Sarah Jane Cochrane-Ramsey.
It seems that the Nigerians should have carried out a background check on Cochrane-Ramsey, because in this case they would have discovered that she had a record of stealing and different property offences. Sarah Jane Cochrane-Ramsey admitted one of the charges (that of aggravated fraud), and it looks like the court believes she really didn’t know anything about the Nigerians being scammers – she just believed that she was ripping off some ordinary employers.
The judge in the case described Cochrane-Ramsey as having a “dishonest bent”, but still adjourned the sentence in order to give the woman more time to provide further details of assets she claimed was in a bank account that could allow her to make some repayments.

|ahah karma is a bitch!|
|Good on her!!!!! glad to see somebody sticking it to these scammers. Just recently i tried selling some custom mag rims on a local site called kijiji. I listed them for $1000.00 and within a day or two i had reply's from people wanting to send me hundreds more then the asking price.I received a cheque for $ 2600.00. It was mailed from France and the cheque was drawn on a bank from Alberta. Needless to say i never cashed it ! instead i framed it just to remember to stay razor1shrp on the net !!. I have received many mails from the guy wanting to know when i will deposit the difference into a bank account ha ha don't hold your breath on that . Hedz up if it seems to good to be true then it usually is .|

|Ahhh....because the check isn't real....any donkey can see that, if they ask you to deposit the rest in this acct. then gee......maybe something doesn't seem right. Go with your instincts, or simply deposit the check informing the bank manager of the situation so when it fails to clear you wont have to explain to them, they know. Kudos to razor1shrp for trusting his instinc andframing the check, weel done!|
|the fraud here number 3 is if he deposited the cheque and withdrew the money the frog could turn around and say it was a mistake unathurised transaction and the money returned to him leaving razor to stand the moneys back to the bank and leaving him without any rims.|
|A bullet in the head is what the doctor just order! Those scammers are better to stay as far as possible from me because I'll make fun of their guts!!|
Hate, Kill, and Destroy
