I'm not sure as I don't put a lot of effort into these Nigerian scams - but I do remember someone once made the news 'cuz they got killed in Nigeria trying to get their money back in the fraud that I had mentioned. Dunno why Nigeria more so than any other country ... but both the State Department and the FBI warn specifically about the fraud I had mentioned...

US STATE DEPARTMENT: Detailed information on the scheme, centered largely in Nigeria, wherein people are offered a share of millions of dollars to help transfer the money to their bank...

US FBI: Nigerian Letter or "419" Fraud Nigerian letter frauds ... in which a letter mailed from Nigeria offers the recipient the "opportunity" to share in a percentage of millions of dollars that the author-a self-proclaimed government official-is trying to transfer illegally out of Nigeria.
