The Nigerians that do these scams are called "Yahoo Yahoo" boys and do not represent the country or its people as a whole. They do give use a very bad name and we have been fighting to clean up the image for a while now

LOL, as a Sierra Leonean I take every opportunity to make fun of my Niger' brothers

It doesn't help when movies like District 9 further diminishes the image of Nigerians. Man you guys have a bad rep, you can't open accounts in several European countries if you are a Nigerian citizen, that's rough

Aside from all the BS flags in that e-mail, I find it funny that the "Minister of foreign affairs" would do business with a Yahoo address. Specifically a Japanese Yahoo address I'm guessing.

Scammers are getting creative with the scams and phishing attempts these days... there's probably some older person somewhere sending good ol Chiefy boy their data for their reparations.

Have a few friends from Nigeria and one of our friends actually trains my wife. It is funny, I don't think about these scams in relation to him at all until this thread. Sweet, Thanks!

So you answered one of those ads, and he trains your wife? Wow...Maybe these things are not scams after all.

Doesn't it suck to be labelled for a few? You can take offense, but it wont change the stereotype.

Kinda the same way hispanics are labelled illegals and I have to deal with that even tho I was born and raised in the Bronx.
