    I know Nigeria is the home of scams; I've had two calls from there tonight. First one i missed, second i answered without seeing the number. Just heard phone numbers being pressed and i cut off after looking at number.

    Is there any scams going on? Or is it just some random stuff.

    I checked the international dial code. Came up as Nigeria.

    The numbers were:

    +234 7038 021 842

    and

    +234 8068 111 184

    There is probably a pigeon in your bank account.

    I work in Fraud for a major NZ bank. As soon as Nigeria gets mentioned in ANYWAY you cut your ties. Simple. NEVER trust anything that is remotely related to Nigeria.

    If your gut tells you something is up, trust it.
