Amsterdam incident to capture Nigerian fraudsters

Last week De Koopman reported that Amsterdam police have captured 111 Africans, in an effort to capture 419-scam artists. Local TV station AT5 discovered that the police just raided a cafe where, just before an African-music concert, a lot of concert-goers were present.

In the end it turned out that only 2 fraudsters were captured and that the mayor of Amsterdam wasn't informed beforehand of the raid. And he stated he was a bit embarassed about the whole situation.
