A Nigerian living in the United States of America, Maryanne Mgbeahuruba, is appealing to the special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on foreign affairs, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, to come to her rescue over an allegation of fraud.
In a Facebook message sent to Legit.ng, Mgbeahuruba, said she was swindled of $50,000USD by an American capital market in New York.
She said that she wrote a petition letter to the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) and the Nigerian embassy in New York both by post and email but she had not received any no response from them.
Mgbeahuruba said that despite that Nigerians are called scammers all over the world, Nigerians in Diaspora suffer worse cases from the hands of western swindlers, adding that, ''When it happens we are left to suffer our fate and even mocked.''
She wrote: ''My name is Mrs Maryanne Mgbeahuruba. I was swindled of $50,000USD by an American Capital market in NY. I wrote to EFCC. I have also written to Nigerian embassy in NY both by post and email no response from all.i even copied American Embassy in Lagos.
''Nigerians are called scammers all over the world, yet our people suffer worse cases from the hands of western swindlers. When it happens we are left to suffer our fate and even mocked.
''When western world accuse Nigerians, our EFCC and embassies are quick to help no matter how minor the amount maybe. But when they scam a Nigerian, no one pays attention.
