sounds quite suspicious - sincere apologies to all the millions of decent nigerians out there, but its well known that some of the biggest international email / web scam artists operate out of nigeria. Be careful of revealing your details, particularly banks account numbers etc - especially while the poster does not provide proper names or contact details, you might get lured into problems.
Agree with you Peter,
I received an inquiry 3 weeks ago, same type of e-mail, same poor info,.# of people and budget, x 2 weeks in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. never got an answer back.
sounds to me it's an scam..so, be careful and protect Localytes.

it is not all nigerians that are scammers ok. i'm genuine business man who is trying to make a living off tourism ok...
Yes Peter, EXTREMELY suspicious. Just the content, like so many scam e-mails makes one shudder! Its not worth a reply!
I wouldn't blame you guys really, because alot of hopeless idiots who call themselvies Nigerian has really done alot of harm to the image of my country Nigeria... Well, if you must know, I'm genuineingly looking some one that could help me organize a trip to South African because I haven't been there before and love to visit SA with my fellow students on an excursion... All I need sincere person that help with trip ok...No scams please!!!!!!!!!!!!
I believe everyone deserves a free chance.. if you email me what you are looking for, I will see what I can do to help you. Tours, accomodation, transport, what ever you need.


I will require a deposit of 20% to secure the bookings.
I'm not making any monetary comitment until every thing is in place ok... I don't want to be scamed ok...
Hi
I do not know if this is a geninue request. I can help as I am a travel agent, but I would need a lot more details. i have start and end dates, but no list of where you would like to travel. I also do not know if the $1000 is in total or per person. Even per person, to get around SA plus have reasonable accommodation etc will be uite difficult for 2 weeks. Another problem is that you have left it really late and most places are full.

I am happy to help but you will need to send me more info. You will also have to do an EFT payment and allow time for the funds to clear. If you are still interested, please feel free to mail me on


Regards
Jenny
Unfortunately my initial and my lasting impression is one of suspicion. I may be wrong but something doesn't smell right here.

Really glad to hear from you ok. I'm a student of the university of lagos, Nigerian I have been organising trips to West African countries but now I thinking organising one to southern Africa... I would like you to furnish me with details of what it would require for this trip to materialize... I would not make any monetary commitments until I see that this would work ok. Hope to hear from you soon ok.. You can also reach on 2348037786809 for more details ok
This gets even more suspicious in my mind. Samuel has a picture of a limo in his profile and states in his initial response that he is an honest businessman operating in the tourism industry. An hour later in his response to someone else, he claims to be a university student. And then applies the original double bluff of claiming that any of us who respond to his enquiry must not scam him! The classic con?
Would need more that just 12 people and $1,000 as budget, Where and what do you wish to see, do you require transport and tour assistance, etc.
Be a bit detailed.
