    Sounds like you’re being scammed..

    How much are they asking for..I’m just curious.

    After you send in the deposit, let me supply you with my bank account details, I'll be requiring one also to verify the transaction.

    Was the broker in Tanzania? That's where a lot of the brokers that are too shady to work in Nigeria wind up.

    Yeah, this isn't normal. Don't do that. Who's the alleged broker?
