Those Nigerians Sure Are Quick

Fed Warns Consumers About Pitches on Phony U.S. Lending Program: “The U.S. Federal Reserve cautioned consumers against fraudulent solicitations claiming access to a nonexistent federal consumer loan program.

If anyone thinks there is no curse on Nigeria, he needs to consult his “chi”.
