  1. I am a retired Counterintelligence Agent and Foreign Affairs Specialist. Now have my own PI Agency. Putting it bluntly. Anything that has a Nigerian connection is all Bogus period. Bogus are all the emails from Nigeria and he Ivory Coast, Ghana etc. that refer themselves as offspring of Kings and Queens who want assistance to get money out of the country by depositing in your account thus leaving you with a commission. Once they get the account number. Guess What next?????? I have been their undercover as a tourist and have seen all the games and know how they play them. The scams I have shared with FBI U.S. Treasury and Secret Service. Anything in Africa has a connection in the UK and Amsterdam. In final
    anything from the African Continent that relates to monetary gifts etc. is BOGUS.
