    You wired the money to a bank of america account,the patriot act dictates that banks must verify the identity of their customers before oppening an account.
    It should be an easy case to solve for the FBI.
    I won an auction on ebay once,the seller wanted to get paid with walmart gift cards,i knew immediatly he wad a scammer.

    I was an international student from Nigeria . I had an account at BofA while I was in USA. It was time that I needed to go back to Nigeria... so as soon as I saw 22k is in my account I cashed it and bought a ticket to Nigeria. Now FBI go and find me there in Nigeria .... not a good scenario?

    Doesn't mean anything, but the phone number Googles Superior, Arizona.
    My phone number Googles a small town in Tennessee, but I live in Nevada and China.
    So that phone number for the truck could actually be at an address in Nigeria.
