Aussie Woman Scams Nigerians For $30k

When you first read the headline, you'd think this is going to be the feel good story of the day. Unfortunately, it isn't.

Her job was to provide an Australian bank account through which they could funnel any payments they received through their dodgy account on a popular car sales website.
