|A Scammer On The Prowl AGAIN (fidelis Aganyi) by lalaponcus(m): 6:03pm On Dec 17, 2018|
Fidelis Aganyi is not a new name to many freelancers on the Nairaland platform. Take for instance, if any new moniker comes up offering writing gigs and making ridiculous claim, there is a high possibility that people will suspect Fidelis at work. Trust me, he is like a scammer with nine lives who has wrecked many writers by giving them long projects and then skipping out on paying them.
I first encountered him under his moniker, MesutOzil and phone number, +2347030681752. At that initial contact, I did a backbreaking gig of 30k words for him within 6 days and he skipped on paying me about 30k out of the deal. At first, I was calm about it but then really got pissed off at haven being scammed by him. Just like a seasoned sly son of a b*tch that he is, he came again with a new gig and promised to pay everything at once. Needless to say, he scammed me of 12k extra even though he showed me pictures of the gig being accepted.
I went on a crazy rant on his watsapp page, called and threatened his little cousin, and even begged his mom to talk to her erring son.
Yet, nothing happened as he continued to skip out on paying me. After a while and following advice from other people he scammed, I stopped and focused on other clients. All the while I was silent, the little runt kept on showing pictures of the 550k phones he had gotten while posting meme pictures of hardwork and poo like that. Still, I kept my cool and did not confront him.
Fast forward to last week Tuesday, a new number chatted me up on watsapp with this number +2348066666856 while
claiming to work for a HIGH elite team of writers. At first he wanted me to write me to write on a medical book and while it did not pan out, he returned with another offer for me to write 30k words in 4 days.
The message smelt very suspicious so I copied the number and pasted on Nairaland, guess the moniker that owns the number?
The same that used Forevermore, Vjsmiles, stevengerrard, Benthom, amazinghope, Fidelmalek, HendrixAya and MesutOzil online.
I wanted to discharge a stream of well aimed curses at the thieving welp but I just decided to go through with fooling him. At least, I prayed that the deadline would pass and he would not have the opportunity of going to look for other newbie writers to scam.
Fellas, beware of this beast Fidelis Aganyi.
Beware of this perfect scum and waste of Ukwada's sperm.
Beware of this prowling vulture that lurks on Nairaland and waits to feed off the efforts of other writers.
Always make your research and if it turns out to be Fidelis, I hope you are so close enough to arrest him and turn him over to the police.
Fidelis omo ale, time is ticking to your tragic end I assure you
Advice for freelancers
This beastial deviant will definitely up his game by getting new phone numbers, so you have to up your ante as well
1. Always research on the client offering you a gig
2. If the client always requests for update every six hours, you may have a Fidelis smiling behind the mask.
3. If he wants you to finish a 30k words at a very short time and with no monetary assurance, be very careful
