Imagine this scenario and it happened real life so don't think it's 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!

Follow a few simple guidelines to stay one-step ahead of the scammers.


1.Avoid sending money to someone you’ve never met in person.


2.If you feel you have to send money to someone you’ve never met, try to avoid sending large sums all at once.


3.Consider paying late. Scammers will often say you have to transfer by a certain date in order to take advantage of what they have offered you. If you don’t meet their deadline and they contact you again saying the deadline has been extended, you may be dealing with scammers.


4.Use a reputable and secure money transfer service. While most of the time your money transfer provider is not the problem, it’s always wise to choose a service who takes security seriously.
