African porn dialers, civil war and networks

Forwarded from the Risks digest (www.risks.org)

This is a serious fraud-related issue that my company has investigated
over the last few years. The problems go a LOT deeper that the Risks
item would at first suggest, and I have sent a suitable note to the
original author. Details are unquestionably off-topic for NANOG, so
if anyone here wants more details, private mail would be appropriate.

So far I have resisted all temptations to resubscribe to "Risks"!
