Well, we’re happy to report that our Japanese reporter, GO, found a way to get sweet, sweet revenge on one scammer he encountered online, trolling so hard that the scammer gave up in a fit of rage. On the evening of September 15, I noticed that I had one unread message on LINE (a popular messaging app in Japan). Sato, who’d been standing in line waiting to buy an i Phone 6.

If so, I was just going to ignore it, but it turns out the message was from my manga artist friend, Horyusuke. Horyusuke’s had a string of success recently, getting his manga published in the monthly Shonen Champion manga magazine.

When the son of the deposed king of Nigeria emails you directly, asking for help, you help, right?

Well if you’ve got a good head on your shoulders, you know emails from a far away member of any royal family will obviously lead to some kind of scam.

Unfortunately, those types of emails seem to pop up in our inboxes every other month.

Don’t you just wish there was a way to get back at these people for trying to leech off of us honest, hard working folks?
