    This is indeed good news to hear for I was a victim several years ago of a Nigerian scam.Needless to say I ended up writing a self-help guide so that others could be saved from it. The book is called 'Scammers Among Us Beware' published by Eloquent Books. It can be viewed and purchased on Amazon.com. Check it out for it just might save you your bankroll. Thank you, Nigeria for getting enlightened and doing something about this scourge that has devestated so many lives.
