A fiver.com user has referred to Nigeria as the scam capitol of the world while “sympathising” with a scam victim of a Nigerian “seller” on the “$5 website.” The victim who goes by the alias Jekyllhyde had posted a short article on fiver forum to warn other users from going through the same ordeal, informing everyone that the scammer is from Nigeria.
My ad firm found someone on fiver who could assist with a wiki page. The person had stellar reviews and assured me she was in EST to make communication easy. Well, the seller was from Nigeria, strung me along for weeks, and when he finally did deliver, the work was a mess. I checked the time stamp on the wikipage, the seller spent one day on the copy, and wasted weeks of my time!
The fiver user who dissed Nigeria posted this comment;
I sympathise with you. I would avoid any offer from Nigeria which is the scam capitol of the world. they have taken the scam to an art form…
Other fiver users however did condemn the statement made about Nigeria being the scam capitol of the world. What are your thoughts? Post your comments below.
