How Nigerians Are Scamming Nigerians With Used Luxury Phones - Read And Learn by ThatReporterz: 6:29am On Oct 09
I Decided to Bring this to the Politics Section to get attention of More Nigerians ...

This is what is happening all over Nigeria Now , I Want you to read and Learn ... don't fall a victim ...

This is Not the Issue of Sars or Yahoo Boys !!! , This one pass am ....

I Will Write it as a Story and Narration so that many people will understand ....

If you are one of those the use to Buy Second HAND Phones , Fairly used or anything Used in Nigeria , Think twice before making a buying again !!!!

A Guy came to a lady with an Original IPhone X , Asking her to buy , that the owner is seriously sick in the hospital and needs money , he said that the price is normally 250k , But if she get 150k let her pay because of the urgency of the funds , The lady priced 100k ... after much dialogue , he make a fake call and ask the lady to brink money that the owner don agree.

So that Lady asked him to bring his account number , make she do the transfer , na so that Guy tell him say , he get problem with his bank , that he no dey use bank for now , make the girl give him cash , he tell the girl say make they go bank go withdraw , the Guy say make they use Nearby POS services , that he will pay for charges .

So after payment , the Guy gave the girl the phone , and disappear into thin air , the Phone is very very Good , 100% Original and the girl was enjoying it .... After 2 weeks of their transaction ... she received the highest shock of her life ... 4 armed policemen visited her apartment and arrested her.

They told her that the phone she is using was one of the properties collected from a man at a Gun point robbery , that she is one of the suspects , they also told her they on the day of the robbery , the man's 24k Gold watch worth 2.8 Million Naira , Her necklace worth 6 Million naira and her 2 months used Mercedes benz GLE Worth 42 Million Naira was collected from him.

They went further to tell the girl that inside that phone , the a contract and deal that worth over 80 Million naira was also deleted, they said before her release, that she must pay for all these or be charged to court.

They gave her the second option of providing the Guy that sold the Phone to her !!!

To Cut the story short, a Guy who works as an informant to a luxury hotel said he saw the same guy who sold the phone to the girl with the people that arrested the lady, as much as the man who claims that his heaven was stolen, discussing on how the girl go pay at least 5 million before they think of releasing her.

They are there drinking and eating Big meat , and the girl is inside police cell suffering.

Don't Be surprise if those SHOUTING END SARS with You are One of their INFORMANTS

Welcome to Nigeria.

PLS FP.

if she had insisted on receipt or affidavit or transfer, even if the seller was police officer, he would not be able to set her up!!! wisdom is profitable

Once a stolen phone is involved, even if you present any of those 2, Nigerian police will still arrest you, its a business for them

Might interest you to know that majority of stolen phone cases never happen.

They just victimize people with second hand phones and arrest a chain of people, but when any of the case bursts, its always discovered that there was no report of any stolen phone anywhere.

I understand you. in some cases, stolen phones were sold and buyers were careless to collect receipts for their purchases. if receipts are provided and people are involved, police will let you go.

What kind of fuckery is this?
With the story, it may be true that the robbery actually happened or maybe not.
Selling an iPhone of 250k for 100k no be beans.
But all those properties and the rest they are claiming went missing may obviously be lies.
They just want to milk her dry.

This is what happens when you are gullible and refused to use your brain..
How can you buy something of such nature knowing that it may not be from the right source and buying from someone you don't know from anywhere, many people are languishing in jail now for this same mistake.
I don’t know how she can get out from this mess she puts herself in.
It is pathetic.

This is really bad, putting an innocent lady into trouble cry cry cry

Who ever expect that in this part of the world where heads turn at the entrance of a lady that same can ever happen to a guy

A Nairalander felt embarrassed, but why should he?, I advised he used a little, but he probably ignored, but then it's a good feat, heads turning for a guy grin grin grin

Even the so-called policemen are armed robbers themselves!
I live in port Harcourt, and it has been reported on many occasions that SARS operatives go as far as forcing people to transfer money to their account. Is that not armed robbery?

I got this from a friend
People, i want to draw your attention to something that is happening now. You see, a lot of Government Official in conjunction with some very highly place Police Officers have began what some people will term Damage Control... I used to work for Ghost PR, if you do not know what we do, kindly Google it.
I have received a mail about 3 times yesterday requesting that i put up a story on any of My media pages depicting the good that SARS or any other intelligence unit do for Nigerians, they promised to pay a certain amount of money, (its huge).. I still have not responded yet.

if you doubt my above story, check the handle of this Op, you will see that it was registered some minutes ago, expect more., On this platform or Nairaland or any other popular site.

This is the problem of buying used products in Nigeria. Only buy used products from a shop / market and make sure you are issued a receipt.

similar tactics happened to my friend but its not a phone deal.
He was sent to prison for some months. When they realized he couldn't pay the money and his family was broke. They released him.
So, i agree that there are some organized crimes here in naija.
