|My Terrible Experience Transacting With A Nairalander (klog) by tempest01(m): 7:21pm On Jul 20, 2016|
It all started in the evening of June 26, 2016. KLOG (https://www.nairaland.com/klog) updated a topic here on nairaland showing He had 200 dollars payoneer funds from his fiverr for sale for 40,000 naira (which he has now deleted). Given the Buhari economy right now, I had naira in my local account, and was looking for forex badly, I immediately declared interest in the deal. We got chatting and that is when my travails began.
After much bickering on who is going to make the transfer first, I logged into internet banking and made a screenshot of my account balance and sent to him. He responded rudely on why I was showing him my balance, that statement irked me, but given that I knew others will be negotiating for the same deal, i explained to him that it is just to show that the funds was there and if he made the transfer and i confirm it, i'll forward the money to him. I asked ''If there is no balance, what will i transfer to you''. And he said he did not trust me that I was too direct. I asked him if he rather deals with people that will sweet talk him and then at the end they scam him?
I then noticed he was holding out,I then decided to take a risk. I told him to show me proof of the 200 dollars by making a screenshot of it, and i will make the transfer first and hold him on his word to send the funds to my payoneer account. He sent the screenshot (without the name on the account) and I did a blunder which I have learnt from going forward - I transferred 40,000 naira to his account.
As if God was on my side, the first error went unpunished as he made a transfer to my payoneer account of 200 dollars. This is where my problem began. First thing i noticed was that the name on the account the money came from was not his and after sometime the owner mailed me on the issue, that money was transferred from his account. I got his contact, and we got talking. He was from Pakistan and he lamented on what he wanted to do with the money after doing some jobs for people. We agreed to share the loss 50/50 and I made a transfer in Pakistani rupee of 100 dollar equivalent (10,500 PR) to his local account. He had previously reported his account was hacked and seeing that my account was the account the money was transferred to, my payoneer account was disabled. Calling customer care, I was told to send in any documents about myself which i did and to my greatest surprise, today i noticed my account was closed. I still had the 200 dollars in it. I called and was told the fraud unit closed my account and there is no explanation - that i violated company policy.
I am not in the country right now, but i would have taken steps to prosecute Adedoyin (Klog). And i would appreciate anyone that can help to please contact me. The EFCC should have a unit that can handle these type of fraud cases as the digital footprint is there at their disposal, and it wont take time to investigate and successfully prosecute. These are the people giving us a bad name outside and others bear the brunt and also a lot of people are being defrauded daily, but there is no effective medium to prosecute the culprits despite glaring evidences. Our Financial security guys need tosit up.
I am currently at a loss of the 100 dollars refunded to the pakistani guy and 40,000 naira transferred to Adedoyin. That is my story.

I've traced his profile...seems he teaches ethical hacking at Sani bello foundation.
Seems he's from Illorin.

in my opinion : in cases of fraud like this involving international organisations with definitive guidelines and control you shouldn't have gone on to be the arbiter of the case. You should have let them know what transpired between you and the guy because the report made by the affected party has put your profile in disrepute and has he (the affected party) informed payoneer on the deal and refund between you two?
how did the affected party get your contact details and why was the block on your account made after you had transferred the fund? the affected party still see's you as a cohort and i guess the report he made guided them to the action they took because every one knows that accounts get hacked and even facebook and other organisations have ways of combating this.
you have lost on two ends. you knew quite frankly that you wouldnt get the 40k back but went on to transfer funds to the guy in pakistan. you made things complicated for yourself.

Payoneer utilizes email as username and he sent me a mail since the hacker transferred the money to my payoneer (email). The affected party just reported that his account was hacked I think they took the decision themselves, he didn't tell them to block my account. We have a good rapport now and if they are to refund him the 200 dollars, I am pretty sure he will forward to me.
I tried explaining to the customer care what transpired when i noticed they were requesting for so many documents. I tried getting to speak to the fraud unit and they told me customers dont contact them directly. And i asked how then do they come to conclusion that I went against company policy when they finally blocked my account as they didn't get my input. But the customer care agent could do little as the fraud guys where the main guys.
I subsequently explained the situatuation and asked for a refund. She forwarded the request, and I am waiting for feedback.

exactly my thinking. I think those guys are going to contact EFCC and they may come after you to get the hacker or the payoneer guys if not satisfied with your stance may report you as a suspect to EFCC. BE ON GUARD!!! the whites can be crazy to NIGERIAN'S
|Re: My Terrible Experience Transacting With A Nairalander (klog) by tempest02: 8:51am On Jul 21, 2016|
My greatest fear....right now, i don't want the payoneer account again, I just want the funds returned to me, I have learnt a valuable lesson from this experience which will be useful when transacting online in the future.

Quest for quick money is the cause of the nonsense and our security agencies don't have what it take to clamp down on the fraudsters...
Too bad for Nigeria...

How certain are you that the Pakistani dude is not klog or an accomplice of his? He should have reported to payoneer and not contact you...he played on your emotional intelligence with all the stories of what he wanted to do with the money. If he told payoneer he has been in touch with you and he is sure you were a victim, they wouldn't have closed your account.
Have you asked him to help plead your case with payoneer? If no, ask him.
|Re: My Terrible Experience Transacting With A Nairalander (klog) by TCD: 7:03pm On Aug 21, 2016|

The solution is as simple as ABC. You have his bank account details which he used to collect 40,000 from you, right? Simply use that to track him,simple!

Nairaland needs to be featuring these scammers on FP. These scammers will continue since they know their scamming activities will be buried under 3 million other topics.
Cc Seun Dominique.
Hope this is not too much to ask for.

Two sets of people who fall for scammers:
1 Greedy people
2 Desperate people.
When dollar was selling at almost 400 naira to a dollar, and someone from the INTERNET offers you at 200naira and you accepted.
Without even seeing this dude, you made away with your 40k, I think thats desperation.
Sorry you learnt this hard way.
Am a bit surprised you havent fallen for the..
