To my Nigerian Brothers snd Sisters:

This is a forum to tell our stories to the world. Instead of poignant posts, you add the typical, and well known, "Nigerian Scams" to this special forum.

Shame on you! Shame on all who posted messages on this forum in an attempt to elicit money through illegitimate means.


And know that we now have the technological means of tracing you back to the computer terminal you used when posting. Yes, we have found Government officials in Nigeria, those willing to cooperate with our group.

Who are we? We are an International Group dedicated to stopping Internet Traffic that violates the Sun/Trent/Obama/Putin Internet Accords of 2012. This was a joint accord signed by Leaders of China, Europe, the Americas, and Russia. Its goal is to stop Internet Scams, Email Flooding, and intentional disruption of websites.

In situations such as Scamming, we are working with local Internet Providers, setting up cameras in their cafes so the Scammers can be identified, and then when known, they are followed so other members of their gang can be identified.

The team has been successful - it recently identified, and then apprehended, an eight member gang working in Idogwari, a town just outside the Nigerian capital of Abuja.

I was in Nigeria in Summer of 2009. I had a fantastic time there. The social life of lesbians was mostly visible in Abuja and Lagos. I was moving in circles of upper and middle class individuals so I cannot speak wider than this. The reactions I got from men were of a highly sexualized nature. Some of them found it arousing in the sense that they say lesbians as sexually adventurous and had high hopes for a threesome. This, I found offensive. Even more offensive was a discussion I had with a guy who told me of how he attended a party with many lesbians in Abuja. He was particularly hostile when he spoke of butch lesbians or girls who chose butch lesbians as sexual partners. He insinuated that he would support anyone who took the liberty of "correcting their sexual practices" i.e. rape or coerced sex.

Aside from that, I could not hold hands with my girlfriend in public or even dare to sneak a kiss but in the elitist clubs it was all well and good and no one batted an eyelid.
