Listen and listen real good. I lived in Kaduna, on that Ali Akilu Rd. Its a road I knw too well. Aside Dana, Kia and another auto shop I cant remember its name, definitely not ikobo, there are no other autoshop on that road. Do not give them a kobo, as in, a kobo. If you insist, take half of that N40k and take a nice trip to KD to verify 4 urself. If its false, enjoy the scenery, if its true, increase ur allocation and drive d car back to lagos. Whatever choice you decide to make, remember, I warned you against giving them a kobo

One Word... RUN RUN RUN. This is a SCAM and u don't even need to be in Kaduna to know this. You won a 2008 Toyota Camry just like that . People fall for cheap scams because they want something cheap. I can't believe u are even having a second thought about this. Just look at the prices of those cars, 2006 Toyota Camry for 500k, 2007 peugeot 307 for 300k, 2008 Honda accord for 1.2 million, 2009 Toyota FJ Cruiser for 1.4million. I mean how much do they use to clear those cars, are those cars stolen from overseas?

Just for u to be sure, why don't use create another email address, then use another phone to text them this new email address in reference to a car they claimed u won. You will see they will still send u the exact email u received earlier. Do this with yet another phone and email and they will keep sending the same mail. Shine ur eyes.

Yes I collected mine. Hurry up to Kaduna and collect urs before the promo is over. By the time u waste ur transport there and they ask u to pay some money into some account, or they trick u to an isolated place and rob u, then u will be begging for a transport back home. I wonder why people still have even a slight of faith that this is true. Once u have a little faith that it might be true, then u are gullible .
