Is this such a place?!?!?

No. 3 Idowu Odugbesan Street

Meiran Lagos Nigeria 23401

Please let me know. I was asked to send something from our company there and am not sure if they are legitimate or not.

Thank you.

The place might be, but the payment for it might be a fake cheque or a stolen credit card. Worst sometimes they overpaid and asks you to wire a refund. When the banks finally clear the payment and discover its a fake, they will debit your account for the amount they originally credited to you.

If a internet friend purchased something and is sent to you, and asks you to forward it to nigeria, chances are that it is purchased with a stolen credit card, and the goods sent to you. If you forward it, then you have just been made a accomplist. When the investigation starts it will lead to you. Best return the package and keep all documentation.

These two are fairly common scenarios.

Talk to the fraud department of your local police station. Tell them the whole situation and they can advise you better.
