    This is a different scam, not from Ikobo...
    I'm still not positive that Ikobo is, in itself a terrible company, but this email did not come from Ikobo...

    See that they want you to send the funds to Nigeria, according to my research, Ikobo offices are located in a City in Georgia, USA.

    Just so folks know, This Particular instance, is not Ikobo. BUt, I would still warn people to stay away from Ikobo, too fishy.
