Another interesting take on this sorely vexing issue of scams (from Nigeria and Nigerians). The obvious truth is that "things are not always what the seem". The fact that an email claims to be from a Nigerian fraudster does not mean it originates from Nigeria.
I am particularly glad some people are doing a lot of research on this issue: their findings )like this ones) will help a long way in eliminating the strange and often time lazy excuses of many western firms for not selling products and services to potential customers from Nigeria.
Scammers are selling "products" and in this web-centric world you could be anything and anywhere selling whatever to whosoever, so we should be very wary of stereotyping.
