Customs in your home country usually are able to help. They can spot fakes very easily and can run checks through their systems. Most are willing to help, it's not a huge job. Input the documents onto different search engines which may prove helpful. There are websites dedicated to scammers and often have a database of fraudulent documents so give them a try also. Ask her the name of her high school and where. It's an easy thing to check as pretty much all schools maintain records. Good luck.

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell if a passport is a fake or not. With computer technology, it's easy for someone to doctor documents to make them look real. If you check Department of State website and scroll down, you'll see an example of a fake passport which looks very, very real. It's a common scam.

As a precaution, I wouldn't trust anything coming out of Nigeria because as you said, it's known for scams, and the use of fradulent passports to request information/money from individuals is also a very common scam now, not only in Nigeria, but worldwide. You have no way of knowing if this person's story is true or if they are who they say they are. You are better off dealing with someone local that you can actually talk to on the phone and possibly meet.
