Lols... He didn't remove from your money. He already had 3k in one of his pockets. Some of those guys are smart.

give him a firm handshake or take soup along so you can enjoy the remaining fufu and chilled mineral for a job well done.

My own experience was just a bit crazy and greed too
I was working in an hotel in mushin, bally white by name. It was during Muslim fasting period so sales was low and on this particular day, I was having a serious headache so I just sat at the bar resting my head then this werey broda walked up to me saying
Bros, I came for short time, when my money expire and I still Wan lamba so I lamba enter another session and I no get money to sort room for extra time, dem Don lock my gf inside room say make I go bring money. Then he showed me this Nokia n70 brand new, say I should buy it for 10k.my headache dissappear like I used 1 sachet of panadol extra. Upon that, I still negotiate enter 7k.we agreed but I don't have cash, so I went to our gateman, he know say money dey enter my hand wella cos I do lend him too.
while we were at the gate, the guy gave me the phone and I gave him the 7k. He suddenly said bro, this phone pass like that I no sell again. So we exchange money and phone.
I was about going then he said again, oya add something now I said no so he collected the money and gave me the phone again. I was about leaving again he said he no dey sell again, I was pissed I just hand him his phone and collected my money. Immediately he left me, an Okada just came out from nowhere and carried him and they zoomed off.
I gave the money back to aboki and aboki called me back to tell me I gave him 3k,i nearly fainted, the headache fourthple not triple, it ended in premium tears.
While we were exchanging phone and money, the bastard already removed 4k and I didn't even noticed. Rushed to the reception to hold his gf responsible and was told there was no lady locked up anywhere.
Dem show me Lagos o

I almost fell victim many years ago .

I luckily outsmart them that day

........ Modified...................

I was heading to Oshodi from Lagos Island. That was in 2007. I was very young and just started hustling.

So immediately I dropped off from the bus at Oshodi Oke, I saw someone flashed my a clean Nokia java phone. That place can be rowdy then thank God for Fashola. He said it cost 4k. What, a phone that should be nothing less than 11k then for fairly used.

I got madly interested and he took me to a corner along the road there. So I priced 3k which was the only cash I had on me. He said OK I should pay. Now all the while we were negotiating, I see some strange faces walking to and fro and I begin to sense danger.

I made sure I collected the phone before paying. So they asked me to bring the phone so they can prepare the receipt. They said they needed the serial no abi Imei but I told them to just write the model that I will write the Imei on the receipt when I get home.

It became an argument and they started rumpling me. Luckily for me, I first kept the phone in my pocket which they saw but they didn't know when I hid it somewhere else inside my bag.

As they were about getting hold of me,. How swung and turned like Jackie chan from their midst and escaped into another bus loading Mile 2 is still a miracle till date. So immediately I took refuge inside the bus even tho I wasn't going to Mile 2, conductor was shouting bole bole but for where. I sat in the middle and passengers were filling the bus.

They went and surrounded the bus some stood in front of the danfo to stop the driver and when they realised that I was escaping, they brought out my 3k and asked me to return the phone.

I collected my cash and gave them the phone but not without a very hot slap from them. If I'd returned the phone to them, they would have changed it to fufu. Lol

The funny thing is that policemen and other passerby just minded their business. E Don tey dis country spoil shaa. As young and innocent that I was, nobody came to rescue me from the hoodlums.

An elderly man said to me after the bus left that how did you want to buy such a phone for 3k if not that you are a thief or greedy. That word stick to my brain till tomorrow which made me come to the conclusion that GREEDY PEOPLE ARE VULNERABLE TO SCAMMERS.

grin d elderly man no whoze u another extra slap

Na jazz guy...why I go buy phone wey I no check the intestines
Baba no b jazz o
To beat them ehn
Once they show u the working phone
Hold it and don't hand it over back to them,
Once u do they will switch it...to fufu...
Once u do this, they won't sell to u and will reject your money....
Mind you if they agree to sell and u hand over money to them
They steal from the money and tell u they not selling again....
If u smart enough and they want their phone back , another person would hold you that the phone with you is his phone
And you don't have recet for the phone
Na police go settle am, you loose the phone and your money
So best thing is don't buy from the guys on the street enter a shop and buy what u want

Na jazz guy...why I go buy phone wey I no check the intestines
If you don't know how they operate you will fall victim
First they show you a working phone you would operate and check
Then they will tell you they want to copy imei mum etc
During that process they have swapped it with a dead phone for you....
