do you have to $200.00 travel allowance to leave nigeria, lagos
No. Absolutely not. Do not fall for these internet manipulators. Take a look at the website 419 scam website. These Nigerian scams are so prevelant that they are called 419 scams, which is the Nigerian Penal Code for same.
Under no circumstances should you engage with these people. Oh, and if this involves a woman, no that is not her in the skype meeting.....
NO, its not and the only honest part of the message will be that he/she is from Nigeria !
It is a SCAM, so you better stop this contact immediately !
Ditto Odinnthor & globetrott. This is a 100% scam.
Whoever is requesting this fee is a criminal and a thief. Period.
I'll give you the paperwork for $100 if you want. Please send the money immediately to my bank and that'll save you 100 bucks.
My bank details are:
Account: Mr Nyro Riboff A/C 007101010
Please let us know where you saw this
