How I Got Scammed Of 10k By Lavita Ricca Investment by zoho23(m): 7:15am On Feb 17, 2019
nairalanders. I want to tell this story to warn the general public of something currently going on. I feel so ashamed of myself coming out here to tell this story but I won't want innocent Nigerians to fall victim like I did.
On the 11th of February 2019, I put on my phone and discovered I was added to a WhatsApp group called LAVITA RICCA INVESTMENT. The admin of the group who goes by the name Mrs Lavita started posting details of the so called company. He says the company is an investment company where you get double of your investment in 45mins. That is, if you invest 5k, you get 10k. If you invest 10k, you get 20k etc.

This came at a time I was looking for money....to complete my training....
This made me think this was the opportunity I had been waiting for. An opportunity to end my misery. Be self employed and start making money but I was wrong.
He told me when I send the money, I was going to be merged and then in 45mins I will get double of my money. The worst part is that on the WhatsApp group, different people kept on giving testimonies of how genuine the investment was. That raised my hopes and made me believe him the more.
I told myself, life was about risk and if you want to go far in life, you need to take risk. I took the risk and sent my 10k to an account number provided. The account number was a personal account number. After about an hour, I didn't hear a word from him. I called him and he was telling me that there was a problem and that the person I paid the money to has upgraded to 20k He started saying I should send additional 10k for them to put me on the 20k plan so that I can be merge
That was when I realised I had been scammed. It was like a spell was lifted off my head. They has refused to return my 10k back. I'm so bitter. I feel so stupid, foolish and ashamed of myself.

Sometimes I wonder why bad things happen to good people. Well that's the story of my life.

As for the guy I transferred the money to I have cried to God to allow him see his destiny but NOT allow him to get there. The worst part of it was that, those people testifying on the group are all fraudsters as well. I haven't been myself ever since but Life goes on.

Please be careful and never TRUST anyone.

Personally, i don't feel sorry for people like this op

Only greedy people fall for this type of scam. So you pay 10k and you are expecting to be paid 20k in the next 45minutes - just like that? Abi CBN don allow d use photocopying machine to photocopy money?

someone told you about the risk he took and how he regretted it later, with this he can avoid a bigger scam and this is all you have to say?

if you really have that entrepreneurial spirit and empathy you would understand, even in buying and selling there are risks involved, would you have preferred he comes to you begging for money? haven't you been scammed before even if the said amount was little?

to the OP there are better days ahead, you have learnt your lesson just let this sink in and be certain before you give out any of your cash

Can you believe this! We have all been scammed before one way or another, I'm not denying it but read where I stated if MMM didn't teach him enough lesson.

Obviously, the Lavita thingy is just MMM with a different name and he can't tell me he knows nothing about MMM. There's a big difference between taking calculated risk and taking stupid risks just like the fellow did....in fact that's not a risk because in risk, you know about the possible outcome (either in your favour or not) but he just blindly gave away his last card in believe of earning 2x in 10minutes. Pfft! That's a very silly thing

From your post, I can tell you also fell for it, so sorry about that.

This is a scam. They have duped many people.... Promising to double their money everyday.

If this was possible, evey Nigerian would be rich.

They are smart liars and a group of fraudsters, who will do everything possible to convince you they're genuine and God-fearing.

Once they collect your money, they remove you from their group. You can't even comment so that others won't know they're criminals.

Those who share fake testimonies are part of a large group of the scammers... And they're the ones that can post.. In order to deceive people that this is real.

The alerts they show you are actually alerts of funds sent by their victims (mumus/magas, who want to become rich by having their monies doubled).

They're now targeting WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook and Instagram, looking for victims to join them. They have no websites and no offices... Even if they do, they can always pull the websites and move offices and remove their SIMs.

You can only PM the admin that will eventually block you once they succeed in stealing your money.

And they are desperately looking for more victims.

Please run for your life.
