Relocation is a fun business. I very much enjoy having the honor of meeting people not just from the U.S.A. but from other parts of the world.
Over the course of my career I have had the pleasure of relocating people from England, Ireland, France, Belgium, South Africa, Germany, Bulgaria, Vietnam, India, Sri Lanka, Greece, Austria (no kangaroos) Australia (kangaroos) and New Zealand.
One country that seems to escape me when it comes to relocation is Nigeria. The perplexing part is my total inability to convert these leads. For some reason I get an inordinate amount of relocation requests from this lovely African country, but never, no not never have I have sold them a home.
Why just today I got this:
I AM SENATOR BOB EFFIONG FROM NIGERIA AND I AM INTRESTED IN BUYING PROPERTY TO RELOCATING MY FAMILY TOO.IF YOU CAN HELP,PLEASE GET BACK TO ME WITH MORE INFORMATIONS ON HOW I CAN PROCEED. YOU CAN REACH ME BY E-MAIL.

The Senator's plea sounds quite genuine and honest, don't you agree? For some reason, I can't figure out why, I will probably not work this lead. Is that wise? Could Senator Bob be real, or because his addy is NIGERIA he is destined to be ignored?
What should I do? What would you do? Should we all try to help him? How can I convert a Nigerian lead?
