How I Was Scammed By Fake Celebrity On Facebook
On a faithful morning, i woke up, did my morning prayers, my house chores and headed for my phone in the living room.
I open my phone and logged in to facebook, i was amazed on what i saw when i clicked my home for stories. I saw a man who pretended to be peter Edochie, the popular actor in Nollywood industry saying he is giving prizes of 50k to anyone that answers his questions concerning his movies in the industry.
I then try to participate in this so called quiz, unknown to me that it was a social media fraud, i answered the questions correctly and the man confirmed and said i have just won myself 50k cash, i was so excited that faithful saturday morning.
So along the line i asked him how can i get this money?. He text his so called manager's number to me telling me i should call the number for more information, which i did, when i called the manager he said for you to claim this prize you need you send M.T.N card of #1500 to me to process the money for you, which i did. Unknown to me that i was giving a thief my money for free, i called him severally to ask him if he his phone with the process, he said no that i have to wait for some hours for it to be done. I waited and got anxious of the issue, i tried chatting him up on facebook, but unfortunately for me the guy had already block me.
So i am asking the audience now, if this kind of situation comes up or you fall a victim of it what will u do?
