I just got this in response to an ASEM:

Quote:
abeg give box make i take bomb


I'm guessing that it's not complimentary, but I have no idea what he's saying. I ran it through the lad translator but it didn't help, does anyone know what he means?

Quote:
abeg give box make i take bomb

FYI, I am a Nigerian so this is about the best translation you can get.
Although the quote seems incomplete, this is how best I can interprete it

The quote: abeg give box make i take bomb, means,
Please give me money that I can use to come.

It is written in what is called Pidgin English.

Not all Nigerians are scammers, there are millions out there that are working hard to make sure the 419ners are apprehended. I live in Nigeria and had almost fallen victim here in Nigeria. They scam any vulnerable person they come across, EVEN WE NIGERIANS.

in this context "box" definitely means email box, and "bomb" means sending out loads of scam formats at once. We see these terms a lot around here.

As to the alternative translation provided, here we have a case where the terms are specifically used in scam contexts, which may differ from the more general pidgin use. Scam jargon if you will.

You would be a great asset here. May I ask what region of Nigeria you come from?

Sorry if that was a rude question. I was just wondering what dialects you speak. We have only a few translators here and are missing some of the more rare dialects. Can you help?

Sounds like he is begging to be sent a bomb inside a box. Rolling Eyes

Apparently money wasn't enough, now they want weapons...

@IloveNigeria

Specifically, we are looking for someone to help translate Kamwe, Bade, Kanuri (Central), Ekit and Isoko.


Can you help?

@Pastor Frank
Ok, I understand better now.
Those dialects you just mentioned are minority even in Nigeria. I don't understand none of them.
I can help with Hausa, little Yoruba and of course pidgin English.
You really know alot about Nigeria don't you?

@IloveNigeria: A very warm welcome to you! I will keep my fingers crossed that you will join our efforts here. As others have said - you could be a great asset to the Eater community, if you want to. Wink

Let's just say that I have some special insight. Wink

Why is it so insulting for me to ask what region you are from?

Welcome Smile

I hope you do choose to stick around. Nigeria and West Africa in general are incredibly interesting areas, and there's no substitute for boots-on-the-ground local knowledge. Don't get caught, these chaps can end up mighty angry at times.

Welcome, IloveNigeria. Smile Having more local knowledge of geography, languages, customs, etc. can increase the pain dished out to these deserving lads. We know and have read many news articles about the scamming that they do to people in your own country, too. I hope you will share what information and insight you have if you can in your future posts here. Thanks for joining, and happy baiting. Let us know if you need any help yourself. Smile
