NBC News - A 67-year-old Louisiana man swindled people out of thousands of dollars as a middleman in a “Nigerian prince” internet scam, according to police.

Michael Neu, of Slidell, Louisiana, is facing 269 counts of wire fraud and one count of money laundering.

The scam involves getting an email from a Nigerian official who claims the recipient has been named a beneficiary in a will and will inherit at least $1 million. The victim is then asked to send personal information which is used to con them out of their money.

Neu has allegedly participated in hundreds of scams and has wired money to co-conspirators in Nigeria.

God bless Michael Neu of Slidell, Louisiana. That old, hunchbacked, red faced, seemingly armless man swindled thousands of people into sending him all their financial information. It wasn’t a whiz kid computer hacker. It wasn’t some bored kid in his dorm room. It was a senior citizen down in the swamps of the Bayou. And the best part is, he was working hand in hand with actual Nigerians!

Neu has allegedly participated in hundreds of scams and has wired money to co-conspirators in Nigeria.

Incredible that they weren’t 100% lying about it. There are actual Nigerians out there, running around, scamming Gramma and Gramps out of their life savings. Very respectable that they weren’t about to give another country credit for this scam. They could have called themselves princes from any other random 3rd world country, but those proud Nigerians weren’t about to let Ethiopia get their shine. All they needed was an AARP member from Louisiana with access to the Internet and that was all she wrote.
