Beware Of This Guy (scam) by samuel19222(m): 3:46pm On Jul 06, 2015
Guys please beware of this guy kelvin briggs on bbm, that is his pin (2967A0F4) I don't know where he got my bbm pin from, all of a sudden he said we should talk on skype and I told him my phone don't have front camera, so he said if he send me a mobile phone which support skype we can both chat, I said yeah, and he also ask me what else do I need apart from the phone I said a laptop and he promise to send to nigeria because he stay in NORWICH, UK, so yesterday on sunday 5/7/2015 he message me on bbm to inform me that he have already sent it through british airways world cargo and he also include the sum of 900 pounds, inside me I was happy that I have seen a maga not knowing I was going to be the maga, I told him to send me the tracking number so I can track the movement of my items, then he told me no need because they cargo company said it going to take 24 hours to reach nigeria, he gave me the company nigeria customer service number so I can call them and collect my items. This morning I received a phone call asking me if am the owner of the item, I reply yes and I was ask to call out the identification Number on the waybill which the guy (kelvin briggs) sent to me on bbm, after that I was ask to come to their office at abuja for my parcel, I told them I can't come to abuja for now, I ask them to send it to me here in lagos they said I will have to pay the sum of #7500 before they can send it down here, I told them that I have a brother there at abuja so he will help me to pick it up, they told me it's not possible that am to sign a document myself. As a lagos guy I google search the name kelvin briggs, which I saw a thread here on nairaland about the same guy, I just wanna warn my fellow nairalander to beware of this scammer.

As in he sent you the phone, laptop and 900 for free? Is he from Freetown?
OK maybe the guy is gay and wants to establish a long distance relationship (his profile pics)

As scammers are learning to "shoot without missing", hardworking citizens are also learning to " fly without perching".

Thanks for the info OP and thanks to nairaland for providing info that helped him decide. They probably got the picture of that innocent man from the internet. 419ers always target greedy peeps. Think and tell someone before you pay that cash.


Mods......please do the needful.

Very true. If you convert N7,500 into dollars it's only about 38usd why will a foreigner scam you for stipends? Please take off the innocent man's pix.
