Abstract:

"A recent large ad in the New York Times paid for by the Central Bank of Nigeria warns readers of the ongoing professional scam operation being run out of Nigeria. Harold Baines presents a true story of being a target of one of these scams. Baines and his International Testing Equipment receive a letter offering them 8,000,000 dollars as their share in a subcontract for the Nigerian government. Baines need only send an invoice for 30,000,000 dollars and his bank particulars to get the ball rolling. If this sounds unbelievable, wait until you read the text of the correspondence and telephone calls. You will quickly see the preposterous edges into believable and believable slides into likely. As you read this book, there are no doubt dozens of unsuspecting Harold Baines' out there being snared by a world-class scam operation. According to law enforcement agencies, some are even being lured to Nigeria where several have already been killed. This expose reveals the startling details."--Publisher's note on back cover.
