Good Morning eBay Land!
I have decided to make a post to use as a reference for the many email/questions I get about the "Nigeria Scam".
It's getting crazy with so much of it going on.
Almost every eBay member has gotten one of these crazy notices at least once.
NOW, with the Holidays coming, GET READY eBay Land because the

I have researched information and have it all posted here in one area.
