How To know Genuine Buyers Of Export Commodities In Nigeria

I have been asked several times by clients and followers of NaijaBizCom Blog on how to know a genuine buyer of export commodities from Nigeria.
I will like to use this opportunity to say that when ever you want to export commodities and you doubt the genuineness of the foreign buyer, what you need do is get more information about him/her. And the best way to get useful information about the foreign buyer here in Nigeria, is through the embassy or high commission of the country where the buyer comes from.
For example you got some export contracts from a foreign buyer in the UK, America, India, China and Canada but in serious doubt. What you need do is go to the export desk of the embassies or high commission of these countries in Nigeria and get useful information that will help you.
The offices of most embassies and high commission in Nigeria are located in Lagos and Abuja. So, make sure you visit these embassies and high commission to obtain detailed information about your client before you risk your hard earned money to export any commodities.
