Well,

I am Nigerian and I am glad you guys were smart enough to know that these letters were fake. Nigerian immigration office is located in lagos and if you have any dealings, it is best to go to The Nigerian embassy in your country.No Nigerian parastatal would ask you to transfer funds into another account in a different country. Please just stay alert. It is just a few stupid individuals that are involved in this racket and the bulk of us try to put people on the alert.

I might have been scammed. I received an email from Nigeria, in which I was promised millions of dollars for doing nothing other than accepting a cash transfer into my bank account. When I contacted the agent, he said that he was going to set up the deal but he had to be paid half his fee in New York, and the other half out of the transferred funds. Until the other party had funds in the US, I would have to cover part of the fees. At first, he asked for $27, 000 in cash, but when I told them I only had $15, 000 he said he would give me a "break." However, when I flew to New York, he met me at the airport and took the cash saying that he would be back with the "contracts." That is the last I have seen of him. Every day I wander around Kennedy airport, and I never see him. I hope he wasn't hurt, but I sure would like to complete this great deal.
