Money scams from Nigeria: beware!
I have a friend I met online and he is in Lagos, Nigeria working. He does not have a credit card with him and only brought a certain amount of cash with him as he brought the rest in Traveler's Cheques from USA. He was asked to leave the hotel he was staying at because he could not pay the bill. He has told me he can't cash his traveler's checks. Where can he go to do this? I sent him to the American Express office in Maku Plaza, but they were only able to help people going out of the country and it wasn't a real American Express office...so he told me.
I am worried about his safety and his abilty to work and live there without being able to cash his checks...please help.
