"Scam Eye Am (Dead)", Way to Die #894, is the first death featured in "Killing Them Softly", which aired on March 9, 2011.
Adechike, a Nigerian scam artist, attempts to scam a man named Joe using the "wash-wash" scheme, where he dyes fake money black but contains one actual bill and cleans it with a magic wash fluid which proves the whole thing contains real US dollars, but the scammer used regular water instead. He purposely spilled it all (which accidentally spilled on Joe's wrist) so Joe wouldn't know the other bills were fake. Adechike claims he'll have new fluid in 24 hours, but later, Joe catches on and finds out the other bills are fake after rubbing them off with his wrist (with the spilt magic liquid), and runs up to Adechike's hotel room. Adechike stands behind the door to hide and peeks through the peep hole. Joe forces the door open, driving its coathook into Adechike's eye, piercing his frontal lobe and pulling his eye out after Joe closes the door.
