I came across this site quite unexpectedly. It summarizes in a cogent manner the explanations of the various banking jargons. Not only that, it also explains the diverse tricks resorted to by scamsters. There is a separate button for the Nigerian scam too. Hope this helps.

I am not sure this is off-topic, in that it is very much on-topic for all Internet users of whom translators are just a part. But as I am not sure of the correct forum for this, I have posted this thread here.

Sorry that I failed to include it.

I took the time to read it, it's fabulous you really get the opporutnity to understand all the mechanisms of the con artists. Very very useful, also the psychological part.

WOW! Aug 1, 2004

What a site! You could spend hours reading it. Unfortunately, the people who SHOULD read it probably don't -- or aren't aware of it.
