NAIJ.com gathered that a young man was exposed on social media for posing as a needy student while defrauding unsuspecting victims of their hard earned money.
Nigerians are known to be compassionate especially when there's a need to show support for a presumed needy person who has reached out to the public for help.
A young man who uses the Twitter handle @samuel_face2, decided to take advantage of that compassion, to defraud a couple of Nigerians.
The young man had asked for help with raising money to pay his school fees. He forwarded his account number to a couple of donors who were willing to help.
He was said to have blocked the donors from his page after receiving money from them and had even gone as far as messaging some people directly, asking them to become donors as well.
He shut down the @samuel_face2 account and started a new one with which he continued asking for money as a different person with the same goal of wanting to pay his school fees.
His 'wahala' started when he was called out by a Twitter user, @duchesskk, who claimed to have encountered him before. She shared screenshots to prove that @samuel_face2 was actually a fraudster.
The scammer's bank was notified and they stepped into the situation, eventually refunding the people who were scammed.
Another Twitter user who would have fallen victim also tweeted:
After being exposed for his fraudulent activities, Samuel took to his handle to tender apologies to his victims. He wrote:
