Charles Tive was formerly a Deputy Superintendent in the Nigerian Police Force and later an investigative specialist at the United States Embassy, Lagos, Nigeria from 1998 to 2004. While working for the U.S. government, Mr. Tive was involved with the detection, apprehension and investigation of almost a thousand 419 cases involving American victims and victims from other western countries. Some of these cases involved a loss or potential loss of between 100, 000 USD to more than a million USD. Mr. Tive attended several international courses and seminars and has also participated in several international conferences on 419 scam and other related trans-national crimes. Tive obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History / Education at the University of Jos, Nigeria and a Masters Degree in International Relations and Strategic Studies from the Lagos State University, Lagos, Nigeria.

This book really does read like a 419 scam email. It uses bizarre grammar, incorrect spelling, and at times very formal and complicated sentences -- for no particular reason. It truly requires dedication to get through. Moreover, being written by a Nigerian author who is very nationalistic, it contains fragments of information of absolutely no value to a typical reader -- including maddeningly detailed historical facts and reoccurring explanations of how honest Nigerian businessmen are suffering from the poor image of their country. You probably would prefer another book.

I had high hopes for this book. I was very disappointed. I agree with the previous comments. Not worth the time or money!
