Cristiano Ronaldo Scammed Of £250,000 By Travel Agent by Islie: 1:47pm On Sep 20
A travel agent, named Maria Silvia scammed Manchester United striker, Cristiano Ronaldo, out of £250,000 (about N140 million) after the football star entrusted her with his credit cards and pin.

The 53-year-old travel agent also scammed Ronaldo’s super-agent Jorge Mendes of £14,000 and Manchester United winger, Nani, of over £1,500.

Due to her wrongdoing, Silvia got a four-year suspended prison sentence on Sunday after being earlier convicted by a Porto criminal court in 2017, Sun Sports reported.

It was also revealed that Ronaldo was targeted as a victim of Silvia’s scamming spree for three years between February 2007 and July 2010.

Quoting a renowned Portuguese newspaper Jornal de Noticias, Sun Sports reported that the 36-year-old Ronaldo submitted a statement to the police in 2011.

The paper read, “The travel agent had to plug the hole in the firm’s accounts. She, therefore, began to bill those trips to Cristiano Ronaldo, who had an account at Geostar and for practical reasons, handed the agent a virtual credit card and pin code. It was a green route to taking money out.”

According to the newspaper, the £245,770 scammed from Ronaldo corresponded with around 200 trips that he never made between Portugal to the US, Africa, and other European countries.

The travel agent, who currently works as a cleaner, was first interrogated in 2013 before her eventual sentence on Sunday, September 19, 2021.

As part of her court deal, she had agreed to repay her firm a sum of £7,680 sparing her prison sentence.

She must be crazy, you don't beat the cheat itself, Cr7 is the cheat himself. She should have understand that she will be caught. No one can beat the greatest, a hand shake with him alone is enough for her to get the money she want.

The article didn't state her nationality, neither did it tell us her state of origin. If she was a Nigerian the article would have read "Nigerian scammer defraud Ronaldo of his hard earned money". If the scammer was of the Igbo extraction it would read "Notorious scammer and Anambra born Obinna Okechukwu scams Ronaldo.

My point is we struggle so hard to pull each other down and paint ourselves black before the world, scammers are everywhere, crime is everywhere but that of Nigeria will keep ringing a bell in the ears of the world because we made it so.

This I have seen.

Seems like a family issue, those kind senior auntie things using Ronaldo's fame and connections to eke out a living. Na cleaner she be masef. CR7 sending in a statement almost after 4 years of it's occurrence seems to have been pressured by other family members to report their auntie that can't just keep withdrawing from CR7.

Am judging by the report that says CR7 gave her himself, his card and PIN.
