Nigerian Navy Recruitment Scam
Just when we had all gotten used to those Nigerian email scams that fill up our inboxes every day, the Nigerian criminal class has gone back to the drawing board and come up with an entirely new way to con people out of money: it's the Nigerian Navy Recruitment Scam. Nigerian fraud artists are circulating fake documents that appear to be recruitment forms for the Nigerian Navy. I'm at a loss to see how exactly they make money out of this, but I'm sure they have a way. Meanwhile, the real Nigerian navy has announced that it will begin circulating real recruitment forms sometime this month.

I am that artillery-man. I am the small screw in the perfect war machine. I am the last and smallest link in the chain of command. I am supposed to simply follow orders--to reduce my existence down to stimulus and reaction, to hear the sound of 'fire' and pull the trigger, to bring the overall plan to completion.
. Perhaps I am capable of much more than that. I confess that I am especially gifted or courageous soldier; I am the best shot, and my technical skills are good. "Sincerely, ike ogbo.I want to join the nigerian navy.I'm 23.I'm tall and i ve a good o'level result due to financial constraints i can not go to the university.
