Back in March, I commented on how the Nigerians had exported their unique technical skills to the Iraqis:
The Nigerians have become Iraqis
Now, they have taken their mission to Europe, and now the Nigerians have even become the British.
Make no mistake about, though -- THIS IS A SCAM. Do not send them money or bank info. Do not click on their links. Do not visit their sites. Do not call them. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.
Again -- THIS IS A SCAM
