I am not Nigerian, not 22, not jobless, not a lady and not a nanny, so my opinion may not be worth much. But I wouldn't do it.

i am not Nigerian, am not 22 (wish i was lol), not sure i would be referred to as a lady , but i am a female....i am with CSDF i wouldn't take it either. Saudi's have a bad reputation for mistreating their household employees, and even more so if you are of black origin. I would definitely reject the offer.

once you are in Saudi Arabia, you could well find yourself pretty much a hostage to your sponsor. They will almost definitely take away your passport so that you cannot leave the country and the working conditions will probably be extremely difficult. You might find yourself the victim of physical or even other forms of abuse you don't want to think about. And if you are, there will be no way for you to get help.

They will also tell you anything at all to get you here. You will only find out whether they are lying the hard way.

It is not worth it.

You might try www.expatwoman.com for Dubai, AD, Northern Emirates. You're not supposed to advertise for a job but you could post asking how is the best way to get a nanny job with expat/good family in Dubai etc. I think there are quite a few jobs going.

I know of a great nanny job, with a great sponsor. They need to cover some medical bills but their account is frozen due to not paying a fee for a lost credit card, if you could send me US$200 via western union that I will pass on to them to unlock their account... they will offer you a good job paying $3000/month for doing some basic housekeeping and nursing type work. please be quick

Dear Wealth

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday.

My name is Peter Lawson,a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer which was discovered very late,due to my laxity in carrying for my health. It has defiled all forms of medicine, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts.

I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone not even myself but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focus on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it.

Now that God ! has called me, I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul and so, I have decided to give arms to charity organizations and give succour and confort to the less priviledged in our societies, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth.

So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization and to the less priviledged in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them.

The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of twenty four million dollars that I have with a Security Company in Europe for safe keeping. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and disburse it to some charity organizations and to the less priviledged.

Please send me a mail to indicate if you will assist me in this disbursement.

I have set aside 10% for you for your time and patience.

You can e-mail me at[email protected]

While I await to hear from you, may God be with you and your entire family.

Remain blessed.

Mr.Peter Lawson

I thought it was genuine too, but too good an opportunity to miss.
