RE: [infoguys-list] Re: WHY ME?
- I agree with Ray.
In another life, I owned a manfacturing company which provided body armor,
tactical equipment of the highets quality. The "Nigerian Government"
provided me with a 39,000,000 contract ( which I still have a copy of). It
is very impressive. We ran all the traps on the project. They wanted samples
to verify quality of load bearing and repelling vests, etc. (no armor was
requested). We contacted people in the administration and ask about the
contract in temrs of 1. was it legal, 2. was it real. They ran their traps.
The answer was it was not possible to tell but copies of the contract were
in fact on the books at the Ministry of Defence in Nigeria.
With that response we shipped about 1000 worth of samples to the Nigerian
government. As time wore on and repeated phone calls it came down to the
fact that we had to put op a 300,000 bond in order to complete the
pre-contract arrangments. We even agreed to do so in a US bonding company.
As it turned out that wasnt good enough had to be a nigerian or as I recall
another african countries bonding company. That is when it stopped and we
turned it over to the US Secret Service.
Never ever underestimate your enemy and in this case they are extremely
crafty and cunning and they have reaches inside the goverment there to make
every scheme look real. Calling them stupid is not the answer, when you
think they are stupid, look in a mirror. You think your running them out of
town and they are really leading you.

OK, making blanket statements about African IQs is way off the mark. The
only relevant facts concerning IQs in this context are that the Nigerian
scammers are extremely intelligent, and that a number of very
schemes have been hatched in Nigeria - some involving credit card cloning,
identity theft schemes, etc. Groups of Nigerians have traveled to the US
successfully scammed high-end merchandizers out of vast sums of money.
They don't mind if you assume they are stupid, however. In fact, they
it. It's part of any successful con, and they are very successful
