SCAMMERS: They got us had!

Last Update: April 22, 2016

It is a thing of great joy when we find the name of our country on international listings. The general notion is - 'at least we can participate' which comes ahead of 'wow, they are so considerate to have us'. Truthfully, who should blame or question businesses on the kind of users or consumers they want walking through their doors especially when those users may not all mean well. Scammers AKA 419 in my country tend to be African Princes looking for people to transfer huge sums of benjies for them for a stake in the deal. The singular popularity of such e-notes on e-mails being perpetuated than less than 1% of the country's population creates ripple effects which leaves millions of innocent people affected. For years, Nigerians have been unable to participate in online businesses, microjobs, you name it, as a result of actions by atrocious con-men. Although since Nigeria's number one bank, First Bank enacted a partnership which brought Paypal to our fingertips, we see the wall crumbling, albeit slowly. Small wonder, my coming to Wealthy Affiliate and not finding Nigeria on the listing but alas! Kenya too was missing (surprise, they were supposed to be good guys). But like the community which is Wealthy Affiliate my query was already answered; use a next door neighbour - French speaking Niger of course, and whala! I'm gone Premium. Did I meet this obstacle again? Yes, I did, in the purchase of my domain and this time, guess who saved me in the spirit of sisterhood? Ghana, a country my sister calls home with a genuine address and telephone number to fit into my registration.

Scammers - with the number of open hearts willing to share pathways for me to reach my goals here on Wealthy Affiliate - I got them had!
