Origin This style of scam has been recorded as early as in the 19th century with a confidence trick known as The Spanish Prisoner, but the modern Nigerian 419 scheme began as a postal scam during the corrupt years of the Second Nigerian Republic between the late 1970s and early 1980s. Spread Between the 1980s and 1990s, the trend of advance fee scams shifted from print and postal service to fax messaging as the primary means of dissemination and by the late 1990s, it had begun to thrive online with the innovation of e-mail communications and spambot software, which significantly lowered the cost of operations and allowed scammers to target uninformed readers in advanced economies of the 12 month millionaire pdf-speaking world.

In tandem with his political career, Peter O’Neill has built an extensive business empire with interests in almost every sector of the economy and assets worth many hundreds of millions of Kina. The Midas Touch is an in-depth investigation by PNGi into the Prime Minister’s business empire and how it has been interwoven with his political career. The Midas Touch is based on months of digitally assisted analysis of several thousand corporate records, hundreds of official documents and media reporting. This responsibility must override self interest. A Leader’s first loyalty must be to his office, not to himself.
As Peter O’Neill’s political career reached its crowning peak in 2011, his business empire underwent an astonishing period of growth. There is nothing necessarily sinister about this. Prime Minister personally possessing significant stakes in key markets, generates fertile ground for conflicts of interest. Avoiding conflicts of interest is not only a matter of good practice, it is a demand enshrined in the Constitution.
Peter O’Neill has acknowledged the importance of these duties on the floor of parliament, after he was accused of having personally benefited from an Ok Tedi related contract. There is no single contract given to any associated companies that I have a shareholder of or any Minister of this Government has got a shareholding. There is absolutely nothing since the State has taken over. We understand conflicts of interest very well. PNGi puts O’Neill’s statement to the test. O’Neill’s business Wild Cat Developments was one of the first to benefit from the construction of the controversial new Western Pacific University, in the Prime Minister’s Pangia-Ialibu electorate. It has also made significant revenues from Asian Development Bank funded projects.
Has Peter O’Neill declared his interests to the Ombudsman Commission and sought special dispensation for his voluminous range of business interests? Have these contracts complied with the governance protocols of the relevant International Financial Institutions and foreign government agencies? Should the Prime Minister be able to personally profit from decisions made by his government, even where he has recused himself from the decision making process, and declared his assets to the Ombudsman Commission? According to O’Neill, he retains this vast business empire as a charitable service to Papua New Guinea’s workers. We don’t make hundreds of millions kina in profit but we continue to maintain those companies because we continue to support Papua New Guinean families so, Mr Speaker, that is the case on the issue as it is.
Peter O’Neill is generating considerable returns from his vast business holdings, which have sizeable declared assets. All this in a country where the legal minimum wage remains 3.
