|Phones / American Woman Buys Iphone 6 But Gets A Pack Of Potatoes Instead by AmeboGist: 9:05am On Nov 24, 2017|
A woman who thought she has scooped a great Black Friday deal when she bought an iPhone 6 for $100 got a nasty shock when she opened the box.
The unidentified victim was at her home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, when a man drove past in a black truck with a yellow and red balloon and a sign taped to the side of it reading: " Black Friday sale".
She went out to see what he was offering, and found that the truck was loaded with high-tech items including phones, laptops, DVDs and CDs, as well as clothes, shoes, watches, bags and - bizarrely - bundles of hair.
She asked the man if he had an iPhone 6 and he handed her a phone which appeared to be in good condition. He told her the phone was already activated and the first bill was due in mid-December.
The victim even asked him to call the phone to double-check it was working - and it rang.
She handed over $100 and left with a box containing what she thought was her iPhone and a receipt. It wasn't until she got back inside and opened the box that she realised she'd been duped.
"The box is heavy, and I get home, and this n***** sold me a box of potatoes," she said in a video posted on LiveLeak.
"A box of potatoes for $100 this n***** gave me one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven cut up potatoes. I am not kidding."
To add insult to injury, the box also included an Android charger.
"What the heck am I supposed to do with this?!" the victim said.
|Business / Per Second News Retracts Story On Heritage Bank’s Involvement In N150m Fraud by AmeboGist: 12:17pm On Aug 04, 2017|
Online news website, Per Second News has retracted a story published on its website where Heritage Bank was fingered as being involved in a N150 million racketeering.
The story had purported employees of the bank and staff of MTN as being instrumental to the swindle of some customers.
The newspaper in a statement said it “has carried out checks on the story and discovered that standard editorial procedures were not followed to verify its authenticity. After making the embarrassing error the headline and content was amended the same day.
“The story was filed by one of our financial correspondent who passed it directly to the IT officer for publication without the consent of any editorial staff. The statement was utterly false. Mr Oyelade Shola-Isaac, 32, Osuolale Hammid, 40, and Akeem Adesina, 33 were never staff of Heritage Bank Plc at any time.
“The correspondent has been fired to serve as a warning that the Per Second News will not tolerate breaches of its editorial integrity.
“We would want to clarify that Heritage Bank staff was never involved in the fraud. Per Second News regrets the damage done to the team by publication of the allegation, and sincerely apologizes to its readers and to the Management of Heritage Bank, employees and customers across the nation,” said the news platform.

|Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 10:02pm On Jan 18, 2017|
Okay i am gonna say this for the Last time, I am not PRO for Heritage Bank, i just happen to find out facts before jumping into conclusion, now these are the answers you requested
If you know the legacy staff of Heritage Bank, then you would know that ALL of them were sacked - These were the people that started the Bank before the Bank opened its doors to the general public. Compensation like i said, 30working days never finish na? Why is it that people only like a policy when it favours them?
Liquidity issue? Are the customers getting their monies Yes/No? http://www.thisdaylive.com/index.php/2016/12/05/heritage-bank-safe-sound-profitable-says-sekibo/ Please read that article and you will be enlightened.
So because the Bank decided to restructure the salary of Staff and give more incentive to HARD WORKING staff, you are now vexing? Oga if you worked hard, met your deliverables and possibly exceeded it you would have been paid your UNTAXED incentive, After all when you received your total package was it not better that your previous package? so please miss me with that BS. If you didn't like it, you could walked outta the door, collected your compensation and run your own business, where you can be dashing undeserving staff monies they don't deserve.
So please Oga, the minute you realize that any Bank and not only Heritage Bank is a business that has to provide returns to the stakeholders who put money together to setup the business and NOT A CHARITY ORGANIZATION, thats when you will be enlightened.
So my evil minded, Bitter speaking, ex-employee undeserving employee of Heritage Bank, get off your entitled horse and strive to do better....

I wish I was PRO for Heritage Bank oooo, my pocket go dey sweet now!! Anyways take this as a lesson so when you run your own organization you can do better!!
|Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 11:40pm On Jan 17, 2017|
False claims that? They are restructuring their workforce? - I hate to break it to you darling, they did restructure their workforce and you didn't make the cut.
30 Days after termination - Biko did you include the days of no-work? After all you all claim extra leave days when your leave falls on/with a public holiday.
1 Year Basic? - Look at your offer letter and calculate your Basic and get back to us.
1 year HMO for you and your family? - You tell us....
|Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 11:29pm On Jan 17, 2017|
How is it my choice to reason that way? I am only pointing out the same point you pointed out.... After all are we not all pointers? lool
|Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 11:24pm On Jan 17, 2017|
Same way they made a decision, the decision makers also made a decision... so why is that now our problem? after all the decision makers are satisfied....
|Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 11:18pm On Jan 17, 2017|
I agree with you but, why would you stay in one post & one position for 15years!! Na your Papa get the Bank? Moreso, they didnt get the knowledge outta the blue, it was passed to them by an older generation whom left to pave way for them to also grow as the younger generation. so why are they now building house ontop seat that can be taken at any point in time?
|Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 11:11pm On Jan 17, 2017|
My Chairman... How many years you don use for the Bank?
|Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 11:06pm On Jan 17, 2017|
I wish it had to do with me being an inside staff, How do you expect the junior staff to grow and have career progression when a senior staff has been on the same seat for over ten years and they have refused to resign? Common lets be honest with ourselves here.
Push out the Older ones, so the younger ones can grow... simple!!
|Career / Re: Dismissed Staff Were Adequately Compensated – Heritage Bank by AmeboGist: 10:21pm On Jan 17, 2017|
Let me weigh into this Heritage Bank news with authentic information. I think one of the major issues that Heritage Bank has had in the past is the lack of communication when bad press begins to start, but i like this Fela Ibidapo administration, more grease to his elbows....
Now to the matter at hand, Heritage Bank laid off staff and this lay off was done late last year. all the legacy Heritage Bank senior staff and close to retirement age staff of the acquired Enterprise Bank were asked to go and their compensation started from 1YEAR BASIC SALARY (WITHOUT TAX), 1YEAR HMO COVERED PLAN FOR THE AFFECTED STAFF AND THIER FAMILIES, writing off of the existing staff loans just to name a few.
Majority of the affected staff especially those from the Acquired Enterprise Bank staff had at most 1year till retirement and 98% had trained their kids through school with most of them working in good organizations, and only a few junior staff were affected and these staff had existing disciplinary cases against them.

Reality starlet Kim "The LovePeddler" Kardiashian recently came to Nigeria for the highly publicized Darey Concert, But unfortunately Ms. Kardashian having fulfilled all media engagements didn't even stay till the end of the show. A lot of people were furious but now we know why she didn't want to stay. Apparently all the women she met where apes and she visited the worst of the worst in the country. So to Gbemi (BeatFM), Eku(Studio 53) that were feeling fly to have interviewed her, SHE THOUGHT Y'ALL WERE APES!!!!
|Celebrities / Wizkid To Return To EME by AmeboGist: 6:54pm On Mar 25, 2013|
If everything goes according to plan, Wizkid will soon be returning to his former music label, EME Music Group, this is according to a reliable industry source. The source revealed to me exclusively that Wizkid and EME bosses have been going back and forth for the last couple of weeks through their lawyers trying to agree on new terms of them working together again.
"Wizkid leaving EME was just his way of pushing the bosses at the label to take him seriously and increase his earning percentage. When he joined EME he wasn't a star but then he became a mega star and was making a lot of money for the label and they still didn't increase his earning percentage so he took a walk. Now they are working on a new contract that will favour Wizkid." The source said
I hear in the new contract being drafted, EME will not take a dime from Wizkid's international deals. When they start working together again, remember you read it here first!
