Scam Alert: Pls Beware Of Tunde Obafemi James by Peaches90(f): 9:39pm On Apr 23, 2013
Fellow Nairalanders,
The person whose picture and name appears on this post is a big time random scammer that operates within Lagos, Abuja, Lokoja axis.
Information reaching me is that he's in Ilorin and attends COZA in Ilorin, I also heard he's in the choir... He uses the church boy facade to con unsuspecting working class people, then he disappears.
He scammed me out of 225,000 Naira, after I threatened to have him picked up, he paid 90,000 naira and has since disappeared. He still has my 135,000 naira as we speak. He's done it to several others and his siblings claim they've had to pay a couple of people off. He claims he works with Julius Berger as a civil engineer and lives in abuja. We only just found out he lives in ilorin, he's gone into hiding again. His picture and name has been posted on facebook and links are :

http://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=4858635746591&id=1318073095&set=a.4858629706440.1073741826.1318073095&refid=17

http://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=4858629746441&id=1318073095&set=a.4858629706440.1073741826.1318073095&refid=17

He's aware of the facebook posts but has gone off facebook again and switched his phone off. He can't defend himself 'cos other people are coming out to talk about their experiences with him.
Pls beware!

overdrive: Nature of Biz u did wt him or sorry what is his format?

He uses the social media, he simply offers to sell you stuff he claims he has or knows someone who wanna sell. Then he gradually gains ur confidence. And even meets чσu, then he manipulates you into paying part of the money, then he disappears. In my own case, he claimed there was a car, sumone he knew wanted to sell. So he manipulated me into dropping 225,000 naira as deposits, to secure it. He was going to deliver the car himself or get someone to bring it from abuja to lagos...he said. I actually would av given him more, cos he kept persuading me to. I didn't think any thing was wrong @ first, since he said he was working with Julius Berger and even showed me pictures. I even had sumone I knew in Abuja, who is also his friend on facebook ask around abt him,but she said she heard that he works with Julius Berger and lives in Abj. So I fell for it.

Well, he made away with the money. And he's been on the run...that's it. I understand he's done it to others. I'm yet to get info about the format he used on them tho'.

@op, how can you pay 225k for a product you have not seen, and by the way do you think the money you paid or agreed to pay was a fair value for the car in question?

Assumption, the mother of frustration. Nothing destroys faster than assumption and unfortunately,...most people especially ladies live on assumption. "I thought", "I hoped", "I wished", "I prayed", etc.

pls dont let us blame the lady too much,she didnt send any money to someone she hasnt met,according to her she met the man and even got in touch with someone to verify whether the person is legit or not,although i think their meeting must have had a dating undertone in it .if she didnt meet the guy at all that would have been a different case.
Re: Scam Alert: Pls Beware Of Tunde Obafemi James by Peaches90(f): 6:22pm On Apr 24, 2013
He could be on nairaland, that's why I'm sending out the warning ('cos he uses social media like I said earlier). He was on facebook, but has recently either deleted his fb account, or set privacy settings, so no one can see him.
I didn't meet him on nairaland either...he was in my church choir(the apostolic church-and his mom is a respected deaconess- pardon my naïveté) when we were kids, that was why I trusted him. Call it foolishness or stupidity on my part( not everyone is streetwise).
Yes, it was a bank transfer, and I've reported him to the authorities. The other person he scammed just joined Nairaland and won't be able to reply to the thread till after 1 week or thereabout. He scammed a nairalander (me), I think its wise I warn other nairalanders. Btw , his msisdn is 08066871033. Would post his uba acct number too, just in case ( чσu never can tell)
Re: Scam Alert: Pls Beware Of Tunde Obafemi James by ifyalways(f): 6:29pm On Apr 24, 2013
Seems you know him quite well. What's the family saying? They should be able to get him and make him pay you.

Once again, the name of the game na "cash and carry" for me. No trust, I sabi, I swear in Jesus/allah name, I believe etc.

Sorry OP.

when important issues or topic comes up these mods are very slow to react but if it is a picture of davido eating roasted corn it will make front page immidiately.
seun and his mods needs to understand how much ppl rely on nairaland for information and news.THIS STORY SHOULD MAKE THE FRONT PAGE NOW BEFORE THIS FRAUDSTER WRECKS HAVOC ON ANOTHER PERSON
Re: Scam Alert: Pls Beware Of Tunde Obafemi James by Peaches90(f): 6:36pm On Apr 24, 2013
Btw, his other victim that I spoke with is a lady too. Another lady also said she was @ the point of sending him money for a business deal she was supposed to have with him but she got contacted the other lady, that was what saved her. So, I'm guessing he scams women mostly ...for the guys, better safe than sorry.

Why people keep falling for these 419 scams beats me hollow.
I will see what I want to buy physically-that is just me.
@OP,
Provide evidence of payment-screen shots.

So, he's been calling my number and I eventually spoke with him about 15 minutes ago and he's begging that I take off all the posts on the internet, that he'll pay back middle of next month(begging with soo much desperation). If чσu're reading this too, tunde obafemi, I won't stop until чσu pay me back in full. Thanks for teaching me how to be wise
