Nigerian motherload lands some in the slammer

I am not sure whether this is the first of its kind, or the only one of its kind. A Nigerian woman is getting two and a half years in jail for, get this, pulling off a $242 million heist from a South American bank (most of the money was later recovered, but some bank officials are taking the heat as well).

The Nigerian government is claiming this is the first prosecution of its kind. Lets all hope the enormity of the scam is a one of a kind.

***UPDATE***

The Nigerian government continues their pursuit of scammers, with a multi-country bust roping in hundreds of participants.
