In a case of classic karma, an Australian woman stole more than £22,000 from a gang of Nigerian scam artists who had set up a suspect internet car sales outfit.

Sarah Jane Cochrane-Ramsey admitted one count of aggravated fraud at Brisbane District Court for her role in out-scamming the scam artists. 



She had been employed form March 2010 as part of the Nigerians group and was responsible for opening an account in to which money from the dodgy internet dealings could be held. She was supposed to keep eight per cent of the money entering this account but she decided, instead, to keep £22,000 of it and splash the cash on herself. 



The police were put on the case after a number of customers of the car sales outfit complained, and the account was eventually traced back to Cochrane-Ramsey, who already had a string of fraud-style offences to her name.
