Man Jailed 5 years for `Nigeria Scam'

SYDNEY (AP) A Sydney Man was imprisoned for more than five years Monday for duping people into sending him millions of dollars in the "Nigeria scam" global Internet ruse.

Nick Marinellis pleaded guilty in the New South Wales District Court to 10 counts of fraud for taking part in the scam promising people millions from Nigerian back Accounts in return for an "administration fee."

Prosecutors said Marinellis fleeced his victims of 5 million Australian dollars ($3.8 million).
