People from nigeria like to skam t-shirt companies for some reason. Check this email coorespondance I had with a nigerian, "buyer". Some of things this guy wrote me are so rediculous. Also see: http://www.goingpostal.cc/NigerianT-shirtConnection.htm for an article on these skammers.

Heres my conversation with the guy over email. I starred out wholesale prices , because I do not wish to share those:

Samuel,

For 150 shirts, the price would be $*.** USD each. The total cost for shipment would

be $600 . The total cost for the order would be $****.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*The guy miss-understood my price and actually added the total for the entire order with the shipping cost, and still said he wanted to buy the shirts for an astronomical price.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shipping in africa (or anywhere in the world) is ok as you get payment first. Paypal, money order, or as going postal suggests, Gold Coins ;) . As long as you can have the cash in your bank account before you ship the item.

My question about these people is WHY T-SHIRTS??? One would think that this type of scam might work against a large company that is not organized, but not a againt a small t-shirt company run by 1 or 2 people. I would think that they would want to get a higher end item than t-shirts...maybe electronics (although "samuel" tried to get me to buy him a computer ;) )I wonder if anyone has actually sent these people shirts? I guess somebody must have, or they wouldn't keep trying?
