So, here is one more axiom, something you have to make a sticky note of and put on your refrigerator. What happens to all these people in Nigeria and Ghana? This is how things go: 1) they contact you, claiming to be from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Western Europe 2) their English sucks, though they claim to be the native English speakers and they say “am” instead of “I am” 3) they give you their email or Yahoo ID in the first 1-2 messages and want to get off-site and chat on messenger 4) they are widowers, their wives died in the horrible car or plane crashes, they raise “a kid” alone, or (if they are females) they are recovering from a bad relationship with a cheating ex. Whatever you are involved in with Nigeria or Ghana, is always scam and fraud.

Yet another twist with some military scams: they are in Iraq or Afghanistan, and need your help in smuggling in the country gold, money, Saddam’s treasures, etc.. But to receive the treasures you will have to pay fee to customs, lawyers or any other fee associated with it. Or, they pretend to be in the military, and either want you to pay so they can go on a leave and meet with you (bunch of crock!
