I have an apparent inheritance in Nigeria. The bank there

Customer Question

I have an apparent inheritance in Nigeria. The bank there approved the transfer via a reserve bank here in the US and now is telling me the reserve bank is demanding an upfront payment of 90,000 before they will release the money to my local bank. That doesn't seem right. I've never had a bank demenad a "tax" instead of the IRS.
