First of all, Nigeria is not in the middle east, it is in sub Saharan Africa. It is not a desert.
Second, I do know people who are westerners who work and live in Nigeria for oil extraction companies. Nigeria does have alot of oil.
That said, this is obviously a scam. Although I have heard that that this scam is operated out of Holland. Seeing how youd think, Nigeria is a poor
country, where would the common scam artist get a computer?
Nigeria isnt the only country used, Ive seen scams claiming they were a general from South Africa, the King of Lesotho, a burocrat from the Ivory
Coast, ect ect ect. Im surprised Ethipoia hasnt sent me a message.
So, usually send them fake information or the name and number to someone I hate to further contact.
