Today, thanks to the Citation Needed podcast, I learnt that MAGA is a surprisingly accurate term. The episode covers Common Scams and Cons. The term Maga, or as it is written in the U.S., "MAGA", was mentioned in connection to the Nigerian e-mail scam.

They refer to their targets as Maga(s), slang developed from a Yoruba word meaning "Easy Target or Fool" and referring to gullible people in general. Some scammers have accomplices in the United States and abroad that move in to finish the deal once the initial contact has been made.[30]

Advance-fee scam

The guys at Citation Needed are currently running a charity drive for Modest Needs also. Checkout Vulgarity for Charity. They have an anonymous donor that is matching the first US$100k so your donation is "worth 2 monies".
