Ijebu School Nursing Form: How I Got Scammed by Confusedsoul: 9:54pm On Jan 21, 2017
I was surfing the web few days ago when i came across a post by an "Admin" on this website (www.ijebu-ode.adsafrica.com.ng) about Ijebu school nursing form. I quickly copied the contacts there and gave the first a call. I called him to confirm if the form was truly out and the closing date. Then he replied that it was closing the same day at 3:30pm, i should take N7,500 with me to first bank and when i get there i should give him a call.
I doubted his authenticity so i called the second contact not knowing they are both working together.

Our conversation goes thus
"Hello sir, this is **** from ikorodu, i'm calling to inquire about Ijebu's nursing form and the closing date cos i just called someone who told me it's closing by 3:30pm"
Then the man replied
"My daughter, don't mind that man o, he's a 419 and i'm the real Admin. I'm going to send the account number of our co-ordinator to you now so send the N7,500 there before 3pm so as to go do the registration for you"
I must confess, i swallowed all what he said cos he sounded responsible and also like someone in his late 50s.

He instantly inboxed me on whatsapp and we started chatting.

I ran helter skelter for the money which i was able to borrow from a friend with my second phone as collateral. I sent it to the account number he gave me
"SCHOOL CO-ORDINATOR'S ACCOUNT NAME: DR OTEDOLA KOLAWOLE. ACCOUNT NUMBER 3110811580. FIRST BANK PLC"

After doing that, we started chatting and he asked me to send my waec result and passport which i did.

Along the line, i asked when i should come to Ijebu Ode to submit my form and he said he has done it for me. I asked for the examination date and he replied "My dear, so you don't know there is no written examination? This year's admission will be given based on your O'level result"
I was so surprised
Then he said "My daughter, admission process here is 25k and i will collect nothing up to that cuz you're my daughter" I then called a friend who told me that the school has been closed few years ago. It was then that it dawned on me that i've been duped! When he also realised that i've gotten his scope, he blocked me on Whatsapp. I called him the next day with another number and when he recognized my voice, he ended the call and blocked me. My friend gave him a call and he promised to refund and ended the call afterwards. He then blocked him too. He hasn't sent the money o! Please help me identify this scammer

His number
08060588319
The number he sent his account number with
08106644747

The first number i called.
07037433010

This is why it is always advisable to ask relevant questions before venturing into an unfamiliar procedure. You have the internet at your fingertips, that should have been the tool to use to avert such an unfortunate incident.

The first red flag was the personal account you were asked to pay into. No institution will ever ask you to do that. And you certainly can't chat with any school admin on WhatsApp. They process hundreds (if not thousands) of applications, they can't possibly have time to chat with applicants. Too bad you had to learn the hard way, count your losses and learn from your mistakes. May God replace more than double of what you lost.

Confusedsoul, I will try so hard to refrain from blaming you because I don't expect you to pay money into a personal account. A true caller check on the numbers revealed that the guys know about true caller an they had one of the numbers saved as school admin and the other saved as Dr Mrs Adekala.
1) Do you still have the bank details of the account you sent money to? (in this age of bvn, his real name will be there hopefully) .
2) I think there is a way to report websites that are scams to google ( the experts will come and explain better)

grin grin Thank God its only 7.5k ! How could you opt to pay into a personal account when you deal with a legal entity? That's the first red flag...Pele. Thank God he didn't send you on a wild goose chase to Ijebu Ode.

I don't know if anyone has noticed but a new monster is rising up and Nigerians need to wake up and fight it and that is that Fraudster are in the rise from custom car auctions to ATM card fraudsters and using government agencies to commit fraud. Most especially in the administration where anti corruption stance is strong...

I feel sorry for this country

@Confusedsoul, report to First Bank and the police
Re: Ijebu School Nursing Form: How I Got Scammed by Btruth: 10:28am On Jan 22, 2017
Ah!

Anyway, refund shouldn't be too hard. Just go to the First Bank branch and report the case, they will know how to help you, and probably get him arrested with EFCC.

Meanwhile, we will start our little corner room investigation. He will surely regret his actions soon.

She was told there wasn't going to be exams and she believed. She was scammed at the end of the day. I don't care about the remaining part of the scam story.
