This happened few days ago in Anambra state. It’s not some fairy tale.
Three men visited a car stand. They asked for the pricing of a 2013 Toyota camry and the seller told them the price (say 5 million naira).
They asked him for his account details and after 2 days, they transferred 3 million naira into his account.
Immediately after the transfer, they came to him and told him they are sorry but they couldn’t complete the cash; so the car dealer should give them 2 million -five hundred thousand naira and keep the other five hundred thousand naira on it as fees for inconvenience on his part. The car dealer happily did that and was happy he got 500k as fees for doing almost nothing.
Fast forward to 3 days time, he had his car stand invaded by F-SARS and anti kidnapping squads. They asked if he was the owner of the account and Nabbed him immediately He admitted to ownership of the account; then it dawned in him what was really happening.
The guys were kidnappers and they used his account to recieve kidnap ransom making him culpable in the offence. He paid them cash with no trace and they made It look like the 500k was his own share of the loot! Now he is in very deep trouble but it could have been avoided.
That’s it people, stay safe and be very careful. Don’t go looking for quick cash or commissions without doing your Due Diligence. Let wisdom guide you always and don’t be greedy!Please share widely so that members of the public can learn and avoid falling for this latest criminal format.
