The book refers to research from Microsoft Research computer scientist Cormac Herley, who looked at Nigerian scams — technically called advance-fee fraud — from the point of view of the scammer.

Therefore, it's in the scammers' best interest to minimize the number of false positives who cost them effort but never send them cash.
