Many of our discarded computers end up in poisonous landfills in Ghana. The hard disks, which can be read relatively easily, are a treasure trove of photos and private data of former owners. Internet fraudsters use these data. In his documentary Belgian-Ghanaian director Ben Asamoah shows how the scamming works and who the scammers are. He does so from the perspective of the Ghanaians.
Take Anna, a young mother who tries to learn the trade of an Internet fraudster from an experienced scammer, but doesn't have a knack for it. "One Dollar" has more luck as a master con who manages to seduce and scam his victims with his fake account featuring a profile picture of a buxom lady. Does he feel sorry for his victims? A question you can easily answer yourself when you consider that he normally has to make do with $12 a month.
