Obviously, I was in need of $30 but I was hoping I could use the guy’s services later in the future. But on a second thought, I thought it wise to make a deposit of $14 since I barely knew this guy. A decision which payed off later in the end.

We all like it when the prices of goods and services are sliced down a bit, and scammers know that as well. The equivalent price for $1 in naira is N153. So that online dealers can sell within the range of
N170 to N195 per $.
A very important tip to know in any business is that cheap services often lack quality. In most cases, they may even turn out to be fraudsters trying to entice you with cheaper rates.
If you must use the services of a ‘cheap’ agent. Try asking for reviews of that agent on Facebook groups related to the services you want to acquire.
Avoid User Profiles with a Single Photo
- Ask: Ask for reviews on forums and Facebook groups before hiring the unknown agent. Doing a little Google search as well, will do you some good.
- Contact: If the review is positive, contact the agent to find out more about his/her proposal.
- Think: Think about his/her proposal.
