Ok here's my first 419 experience...

It was around 2010 or so, was still in secondary school and I saw a text message on my mum's phone saying I won a washing machine, some airtime plus some other freebies, I should quickly call one(attached)number to claim prize...

I saw the message had a different number from the text number, but I called and I spoke with one man, he told me I had won all the above and I was truly happy.. However I will have to send him 1000 glo airtime and automatically my acct balance will be credited with 63,000...

I went to my mum, and asked to borrow 1k, she had heard some of the conversation and repeatedly warned me that they were 419...

I be like, naaa it's not maa, you don't know bout this things yo! Back and forth, but she nor gree gimme 1k... Later i went to my neighbor and borrow 1k(on my mother's name) shaybi i will collect prize it will shock her angry

I send card and I waited, immediately something inside my head click embarassed wait, so I load card on my mother's phone, Dem don load am... So I called

Me - erm, hello, Mr tunde, I have yet to receive the balance, nd how I'm I getting the prizes, especially washing machine etc

Scammer- oh, yes he's got it, that they are working on it, he's in a meeting and he would call me as soon as he's through

Me- hmm, meeting I knew things were beginning to "go throwing"

An few minutes later, I called again, it ranged for a while then he picked

Me - hello Mr Tunde, blah blah blah

Scammer- oga, how far.

The moment I heard the word "oga" I came to the realization say "things don set" grin.

I actually thanked him, even though I told him I suppose swear for an, this "early moh moh"but I thanked him anyway and he hunged up...

I got back in and I saw my mum and my neighbor talking embarassed they both said congratulations... I didn't know how they figured out as I haven't said anything, na so slap just dey enter my head hook, line, sinker everything...

Once went to computer village to get a phone for my brother, but I did not take any cash. So I saw one guy selling Nokia N75 on the street and he asked if I was interested and I said yes....Then we negotiated and settled at a ridiculously low price of 15k for a phone that was about 55k.

So I told the guy I needed to withdraw money from the bank.....carried him to Ikeja mall that had skye bank on the first floor. While we were strolling to the bank I noticed another guy was trailing but I said nothing.

When we got to the ATM, There was a queue so I pretended to make a call and asked the guy to stay on the queue for me (I actually wanted to see if the other guy I noticed was hanging around) and like I suspected the dude was waiting for food to be served grin

After I withdrew the money..... I gave it to the guy and asked him to count.....while he was counting....I went through the phone and ensured it still worked.

After that we shook hands as we were descending the stairs I suddenly stopped and told him I needed to get something in the bank (skyebank). Dude became very confused as I turned around and was heading towards the bank.

After he recollected himself he quickly stopped me and was like "bros I no sell again" I asked why he said nothing. I said ok. give me my money back. Brought it out gave it to me and I counted ensuring there was no fake note in it. Then I returned his phone. And we parted amicably grin grin

Wanted to use the fufu phone prank on me..... unfortunately...."na Lagos dem born me"

Lol, but what was there plan.. To snatch the phone from you or what?

They will tell him to bring the phone so they can package it for him. Once he gives them back the phone they will switch it with a packaged fufu or bar soap.

romance scam is a perfect example of greed, that’s if you know how it works.
Mostly romance scam is not about greed because it plays on the Mark's emotions. Because the mark feels s/he has found love, they now feel obliged to help. They are not greedy just trying to help someone in need.

I have had exactly this kind experience in Enugu but at a different. Only God changed my mind at the dying minute
daben1:
It happened in 2012 when I went to Kogi state university to write post UTME, after the exam and some days in Anyigba, I was on my way to Abia state, but before the journey, I went to an eatery with my friend to eat, after the food, I paid, and the guy that was selling the food gave me change that was more than my change, I told my friend the guy made a mistake that my change is more, I told him that I want to return the excess, he jokingly said if I try it that he'll slap me that instead of me returning the excess "change" that I should give it to him, I told him I won't return it again. After I bid my guy goodbye, he went his way, then I went back to the food seller and gave him the excess change...
I left Anyigba, when I got to Enugu that was where I met those guys, I got to peace park, as I was about going inside to take a car to Umuahia, one guy stopped me, he greeted me and I responded, I thought he was selling something, I told him I was in a haste, as I was about going, he stopped me again and pleaded for my audience, he said he came to Enugu from Cotonou with 50 laptops and 30 blackberry(blackberry then na hot cake na) that he kept very close to Fr. Mbaka's church that I should PLEASE follow him to the place so that he'll bring it from there to the park to sale, I told him I don't know the place o, then I left him. As I was going another guy came, he asked me what we were discussing, I told him, then the first guy came again and said if WE can help him locate where he kept those laptops and blackberry, that he'll give us one laptop each, the second guy said "let's give it a try" and as me mumu na, I was happy I was about owing a laptop, took a car, I paid for three of us(the "Cotonou" guy said he doesn't have naira note with him and that they'll cheat him if he pays with DOLLAR).
Got to old market, they already kept one keke there with a rider inside, when we got there, the first guy entered, I told the second guy to enter so that I'll not be in their middle, the guy said, I shouldn't worry that I should enter, I overheard the first guy telling the keke rider; "start a nu keke a na", meaning, start this keke na, as I was about entering the keke, my elder brother's call came in, after I finished answering the call, till today I didn't even know what happened, I just told them I was not interested again, that they should be going.
I took another car back to peace park, as I was discussing it with some people in the car, they said, those guys could be ritualist, and i started pondering, what if i had not returned that food seller's excess change? I can't forget that day, since then, I don get sense.
Have you had similar experience?

Well it's because you now have a heads up. If you are oblivious of their intentions, believe me you have a high chance of giving them that phone back for "packaging."
And yeah once they feel you are about to beat them in their own game, they will offer you your money back lol. But make sure it's your money o.
