Re: Nigerian Scammers?

I know there is a lot of xenophobia in the US, but Nigerian scams really do still mostly come from Nigeria and Nigerians abroad.

Even the Nigerian government admits it is a big problem for them. Imagine being a legitimate business based in Nigeria and trying to do business abroad.

The non-racial term for the Nigerian scams is "advance fee scams" or "advance fee fraud", because they are scamming you with an advance fee for something that never appears. They are also called 4-1-9 scams, but that is still racist because it refers to the part of Nigerian penal code that is broken by these scams.
