A few months ago I posted a reply on FB about my Football Team-LFC, the next day I had a friend request, yeah you guessed it a Nigerian Male, his favorite Football team is LFC, before I knew it I had some of his friends request to be friends with me and some are female, very pretty they are too.
Any way we got chatting on FB, he just wanted to know things about me and to tell me about his country, my immediate reply was, Nigeria is the most bent country in the world, he said so is Russia, I knew straight away where this was leading, I had a feeling he knew about the Nigerian Love scams.
He then started to tell me a little about himself, he said he runs his own dating business in Nigeria, he also said he does not do very well and its only a side line job he does from home, he also informed me he works/supports a charity where he lives in Nigeria, after chatting about this for a while he asked if I can send some food, I informed him it would never ever get out of Canada if I sent by post, I just informed him I do donate to our local food-bank at the Supermarket I use and that get shipped all around the world to countries that need it.
He then got onto his main job and what he does for a living, he says he works for the EFCC, I thought Hmmmm straight away, I just said the EFCC is a scam itself, he then just said Google EFCC so I did, I was surprised by what Google had on the EFCC, I must of watched Video after Video about the EFCC and the work they do, there where a lot of Videos done by the NBC who worked with the EFCC, they caught the scammers in the act and when scammers had been busted they had no idea what they had done wrong.
There have been posts similar to this about the EFCC in the Forum, the friend I have on FB from Nigeria has said that the new PM Goodluck Jonathan is making it one of his priorities to stamp out the scams coming out from Nigeria, the Police service is getting cleaned up with the bent coppers been dismissed from there jobs, the people in Nigeria are no longer afraid of giving tip-offs to the EFCC and the Police.
The problem is as well so my friend says, they find the illegal internet cafes, close them down but another one soon reopens as all Internet cafes have now to be registered with the Nigerian Government.
I know during my chat I was saying yeah whatever, this is until I put EFCC into Google and seen for myself the work that the EFCC are doing today, if they succeed or not is a different matter all together.
The team at RS do a terrific job, like its been mentioned so many times if RS can prevent any one loosing there money the better it will be.
I myself still remain dubious as whether the EFCC will do well but only time will tell.
Keep up the good work everyone
