I have a hard time believing that is an accurate description of the picture. I wish I could blow it up to look at more details but the following bothers me

1) too many white faces dressed in middle American work attire.
2) Age of equipment - CRTs all of the same make/model. Any place using CRTs in the last few years would have a mix of equipment

I think this is a stock picture of a data entry or other information processing center from about the turn of the century

Personally, I thought the photo was humor.

I don't believe for a moment that Nigerian boiler room operations involve that level of comfort or techology.

And there's nobody in that picture trying to choke their phone after I got done with them.
