I recently put up a monopod for sale and someone from Nigeria bump me for it. Just to verify that it's a scam, I told her that the monopod has 6 legs to provide a stronger support and she actually acknowledged that it's the right model she is looking for her schooling son!

I did a search on google and found the shipping address to be non-existence as well.

Gees, I could have gotten EUR2,300 for the monopod.

Let me share my conversation wif u guys here.



" ok i will transfer the money today so once you reciev a confirmation
from my bank you shuld go and ship out the item and get back to my
bank Barclay,s bank
Thanks
