I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
Yes, it's a scam. Virtually any time you meet someone claiming to be a U.S./Canadian/UK citizen working in Nigeria, it's a scam. There just aren't that many job opportunities in the area, and very few people for those countries are looking for work in such a poor area right now. The fact that they're asking for money only cements it. Any time you meet someone online who is pretending to be interested in you and is asking for money, or is asking you to invest in companies in Africa, RUN in the other direction. These areas are notorious for running these types of scams. They'll keep asking for more and more money until you have nothing left, then they'll ask you to borrow more from friends and relatives. You'll never get anything in return.
