i've never been there, but for my experience in consiedred "dangerous" countires (just to say a few countires, Mexico, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Bolivia, Colombia, Venezuela, Timor Leste and in Africa only Mozambique), there is a lot of sensacionalism and too much alarm for not so much. Be awere of advices related to crime, scams and terrorism. But also be awere that the chance of something happen, if you take some basic cares, though not impossible, it is low. But of course everybody has your own idea about whats a safe country. I'am from Brazil, for examle, and I live in Rio. I believe it'd ridiculous for me to considere Nigeria a more dangerous place...
Malaria is a real problem, though - just after the rain saeson even worse.
This is soooo funny. First of all I understand that Nigerian men are not romantic men and a lot of woman from the states and other countries thrive off that. How can a man love someone that he never met or been around?? I am married to a Nigerian man and there are a lot of things I have learned from him about the culture ( But I met him in the States). One thing I know so well is how far some of the men will go to get there green card or get out of Nigeria, even if it mean telling a woman he love her. lol. I bet if you told him that you wanted to come and live in Nigeria with him that he would stop calling you and cut out all that love stuff. I don't understand why white woman are so gullible to fall for the hype. Also I have seen where Nigeria men play nice once they get out of Nigeria and once they get their papers they start showing there true color. The family most of the time don't see nothing of you but money and a way for them to maybe get out as well because once he leave they see as a way for them to get money and send it back home and hopefully one day divorce you and bring over his real wife and mother...etc. I am sorry to say but take your time and don't trust it.
Please take note,and never send money. I met a guy online who wanted to come to Australia to meet me. He lived in South Africa but was from Congo. We chatted on webcam all the time and on the phone. He couldnt get a visitor visa so I went there to meet him. I went 3 times and the last time with my parents to meet him when he propsed. We were together 18 months when he stopped answering my calls after we supposedly lodged a fiance visa application. All up I spent $40 000 supporting various things he told me about from sick to died relatives to loosing his job needing a new phone so we could talk, to appartment that i could easily stay visiting and to help him pay- which I did to help our relationship. In the end he lied stole the money and didnt come or even place the application leaving me broke and hertbroken. So please be careful, seeing their face on webcam, talking on the phone knowing where they work, and meeting them are all not signs that they arenot scammers. I am an intellegent woman who got caught because I fell in love, and I guess in love with the wrong man.
I beleived this from men I met on the internet dating sights and sent over $ 69,000 , of which every cent was lost, it was a very expensive lesson, to all women if a mant wants you to send him money it is a lie take it from me dont be a sucker, Nigeria is a real hot spot for scams, and also be very careful If someone tells you that the EFCC wil help, they are just as bad as the scammers. Your best bet is don't trust anyone on the internet.
