A Point of Sale operator who carries out her specialty on Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikeja, Lagos has cried how a fraudster hoodwinked her two times by sending fake alerts to her.
The woman, who recognized herself just as Fiyinfoluwa, in a interview with our journalist on Monday, said she lost N100,000 to the fraudster on Saturday.
She lamented that while the suspect was caught on a second attempt, he figured out how to get away from in a holding up vehicle.
Fiyinfoluwa said, “The fraudster came the initial chance to pull out N50,000, claiming that his supervisor was sitting tight for him in a court. Then, at that point, he emerged from the court again saying his manager needed N100,000 rather than N50,000.
“I really look at my Application assuming the exchange was genuine yet I found that the two cautions were phony.
“He came here on Saturday to rehash exactly the same thing. Promptly I saw him, I remembered him. I went further to address him and I was happy he didn’t deny the reality he tricked me of N100,000.
“He said he gave the cash to his manager at the court, and that implies he is working for somebody.
“People who came to whip him when he was gotten tracked down more than N50,000 in his pocket. I begged them to give me back my cash however I was given just N15,000.”
An observer, Bamigbade Suleiman, said, he was available at the scene when the suspect was gotten yet he was fortunate to get away.
“The fraudster made counterfeit alarms two times and I was special to pound him in spite of the fact that he was fortunate to escape,” he said.
