Safe crackers steal nearly $3 miillion in S.Africa rhino horn

Thieves have made off with 66 rhino hornsworth some $2.75 million in one of the biggest horn heists South Africa has seen after breaking into the safe of a game farm owner.
The horns had been removed from rhinos at the Leshoka Thabang Game Reserve in northern Limpopo province to protect the animals from poachers who supply them illegally to international crime syndicates.
Demand has also been growing for rhino horn in Vietnam, where a newly affluent class has been buying it to treat ailments ranging from hangovers to cancer. The treatments have no basis in science but demand has pushed the price up to $65,000 a kg, making it more expensive than gold.

Advance Fee Fraud, popularly known as “419” in Nigeria, is not news to an average countryman. However, what many are unaware of is the deeper dimensions it has taken in some parts of the country. While the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) may have secured many convictions in recent past, more than 90 percent of these illegal transactions go undetected by the agency. The number “419” refers to the article of the Nigerian Criminal Code dealing with fraud – obtaining by false pretence.
According to Wikipedia, Nigeria ranks among the top three countries in the world noted for email scams. The top three nations are the United States, the United Kingdom, and Nigeria (in that order). Similarly, other nations known to have a high incidence of advance fee fraud include Côte d’Ivoire, Benin Republic, Togo, South Africa, the Netherlands and Spain. Names like Ade Bendel, Emmanuel Nwude, Maurice Ibekwe and several others still ring a bell in Nigeria whenever issues relating to 419 are being discussed.

Insane? Woman ‘kills’ her whole family to take time off work

A British social worker has been fired for lying to bosses about the deaths of her father, mother, uncle, aunt, brother and ex-husband to skip work.  Rachael Miles took 66 days off in two years to cope with six deaths she completely made up.
In her first claim in February 2010, less than two weeks after starting work for the council, she told bosses her father had been in a car crash, later reporting he had died. The following month Ms Miles claimed her mother had been sectioned under the Mental Health Act, and later that year that she had died during surgery.
In 2011, she told bosses her brother died, followed by her ex-husband. In November that year, Ms Miles asked for more time off after telling bosses her uncle and then her aunt died seven days apart. “I have no recollection of the events mentioned,” she wrote to a disciplinary panel, before they yanked her credentials.

No Money to pay rent, Couple commits suicide

A once wealthy retired Italian couple committed suicide after the country's deep economic woes turned psychological.

Romeo Dionisi, 62, and Anna Maria Sopranzi, 68, hanged themselves in their home after Sopranzi's pension from her career as an artisan evaporated. Italy had raised the retirement age by five years.
Then, in an apparent fit of despair, her older brother Giuseppe tossed himself into the Adriatic Sea.
"They were people with great dignity," said Ivo Costamagna, the couple's neighbor in the previously prosperous town of Civitanova Marche.
"People like Romeo would not accept charity or social service aid," Costamagna told CNN. "Romeo just wanted a job."
But the jobs did not come, and the couple could not pay rent, reported Italian news agency ANSA. They wrote out their suicide note asking for forgiveness and directing neighbors to the room with their bodies.
