  1. Nigeria is one of the poorest countries on Planet Earth so they try to live by their wits which is not much any way. Any one with half a brain would know you do not give your persoal details to anyone. My Brother In Law who is a Civil Engineer experienced enough with the Nigerians when he was there on a contract he was driving from one part of Nigeria to another on the way he was ambushed by Nigerian Vermin who took everything off him his clothes his money his vehicle and left him standing on the side of the road in his under wear he is just fortunate they did not kill him. That incident is a reminder of the people of Nigeria and I would not trust any one from there knowing how they operate. A friend of mine who had her Father and Mother living in Nigeria on contract with a job and was so good to their servants while there they had a lot of jewellery stolen and any thing they could get their hands on. For perhaps a minority the majority get a bad name. Enough said, poverty makes many a criminal. Alot of them do not want to work when given the opportunity. Joan Marshall

    This made me laugh! I have now come across a person who gets these e-mails as well. I have never fallen for their hideous lies and never given my personal details to any one on line. Yes I have e-mails from people who have Cancer and are not long on this earth and neither would I fall for that.
    I have had e-mails from Libya above all wanting me to invest money with them that was left to them by their Father in the millions and I have ignored that as well. People beware nothing in life comes easily so if people think that these people who are out to destroy people financially are Genuine you are fooling yourself.

    We all know about the job offers. Please publish all the scams from Nigeria saying you are a Beneficiary of millions of dollars and then asking for your personal details such as Name, Address, Nationality, Bank Details, Identification such as Driver’s license, or International Passport. All a scam to empty your Bank Account and use your International Passport for all their illegal travelling. It is not just Nigeria they have Agents in London as well and I get scam e-mails from there as well. What a twisted world! Beware people. Joan Marshall
