@wehateliar welcome to AFI. I need a little time to check this out do you have any email addresses for them. IF they have a company and are talking Millions of dollars then the other details should add up, but from what you say things do not add up.

storehouse dot com is flagged by Bitdefender and Fortinet as containing malware , so it could be a good idea to run an anti virus scan if you have clicked on this link.

The phone numbers show as Mobile phones in Nigeria. A company dealing in millions of dollars would I assume have a office with a fixed phone line?
Nigeria,phone:+2347088747561
Nigeria,phone:+2348132787410

As I suspected, a company talking about millions of dollars but are reduced to using free email accounts.

Due to the large number of scammers from Nigeria many immigration and customs officials are very wary in allowing them access to their countries . A letter of invitation from an overseas organization could help a scammer move to another country. Many susseccful scammers after making a lot of money then wish to move to aotther country for a better life.

It seems to me that there are many indications this is a scam. As a businessman for many years myself, the way they are responding is all wrong but correct for a scammer.

Unfortunately we cannot get a signed witnessed confession from a scammer. We can use indications to ascertain if they are genuine or not.
Several indications are present that show they are not genuine. If you supply an invitation you are in fact in some ways vouching for them.
If they arrive and start illegal activities it could reflect badly on you as you "Recommended" them.

As Miyuki says at first glance they seem genuine but I have grave doubts about the photos on them.
So as not to educate the scammers I will not explain why they are wrong, but there does seem to be issues.
