Ah, from Nigeria, of course! Am I the only one who finds it strange
that this person has never communicated to the list before, makes
their first contribution with a chirpy little note to answer Gene
Youngblood and then two and one half hours later sends this desperate
plea; especially when "I have been starving".....the default solution
for this kind of dilemma (if it is genuine) is to go to the embassy
or consulate of your nation.

Perhaps I could put you in touch with a Nigerian fellow who contacted
me a few days ago about 2.5 million $US that he was holding for me.
