A victim of online purchase-scam who’s name withheld has shared her experience with a scammer who made away with her money worth thousands of naira.
“I’d like to report a fraudulent activity ongoing with a user of UBA bank. His or her name is CHARLES TAMUNODIEPRIYE ANGA, Account details: 2151456833 UBA. Telephone number:
0704 017 9986
The person created a fake Instagram page where he/she purportedly sells “human hairs”. I initially suspected the person, thus I asked for a video. She sent a video, I felt a bit suspicious so I searched for the video online using an app. I didn’t find it, so I assumed it’s a real account. I’ve been trying to follow up with the order I bought and she completely ignored me. I asked for a tracking number, no response.
“So I reached out to someone on her page to ask if she ever bought something successfully from the person, and she confirmed it’s a fraudulent page. Please see attached for the conversations, the screenshot of the person, and all the evidence you need.
“I believe I have been scammed the sum of NGN 22,000. I know it’s a small amount, but let’s stop her/him before he keeps scamming other people through his UBA Bank account”, she added.
In it’s light, AFRICA SECURITY INVESTIGATION urges the general public to pay for goods purchased online upon delivery.
