Yes, some few years ago by one Yoruba guy. He told me to register for Custom recruitment online, which I did, not knowing it was a fake site. I was requested to pay money to continue although the money was small. I paid the money only for the guy to come later and start laughing at me.

I don't think there is any successful Yoruba guy that made it without stealing other people's things or duping people.

I am only speaking from truth and what I have experienced. I am not a tribalistic person. Infact I was born and I still reside in the west.

Oh you’re not tribalistic and you made it clear that no Yoruba ever made it legally, like there are no criminals in other tribes. You may be born and still reside in the west but your tribalism is inborn

Oops, born and raised in the west, homed, feed by the soil of the west, taught the rudiment of life in the west and the only way you could think of repaying us is to tag everyone of us a criminal.

My kind of scam is different from Ponzi scheme.

This time last year, I had received $200 with my PayPal account and wanted it to change it into naira. My plan was to flex Easter with the money.

I met one scammer on Nairaland; we agreed that he would pay me #100k. When I released the money to him, he blocked me.

It was later that I learnt he has scammed many others on Nairaland. There are lots of scammers on Nairaland.

My first and only scam experience happen Ed when I was much younger, during the days of naijaloaded and free browsing.
A guy pasted his number that he has cheat code for 2gig on Etisalat then.
I quickly rushed and call, dude told me to send card of 200naira which I did. Oya supply the code, nowhere to be found.
Well its a good first te but I've really learnt a lot since then.

Please don't mind my English just pay attention to the content.

A family friend called me and asked if I'll be interested in civil defense work, I told her yes why wouldn't I? She sent me a number to call the man he'll put me through the process.

I was excited, I called the man who spoke to me calmly, he asked me to send my details to him which include my name, age, height, qualifications and all, i did that without instantly i was sooo fast while typing I'm sure even flash will be trilled at the speed.

The next day he sent a civil defense form to me to fill and scan to his mail, i did that and called him to inform him, he then acknowledge that he has seen it and told me he has forwarded my form to their H.R. I should await their call, i was soo happy immediately i dropped the call i started googling salary of a degree holder of the civil defense officer, saw 151k in my mind i was like their Father i don arrive, i go soon buy Benz.

The H.R called me and told me they've contacted my school to ask if i graduated from their school and they told them yes. He then asked for my c.v and told me to wait for my appointment letter.

Early Thursday morning omo see appointment letter for my mail o!! with my name written in capital letter... I called him to notify him of the new development, he congratulated me and told me i will have to pay the sum of 85k for my 2 weeks training in Kano and the payment must be made before noon but i shouldn't worry the money will be returned after my training but u have to pay early so as not to loose the job. I went ahead to borrow the money from a friend and headed to the bank to make payment i already got inside the bank before calling him to send the acct number im to sent the money, that was how the civil defense H.R sent me Yayah Suleman's acct number, i started asking my self why would federal government send me a private account number to pay for training? called the guy and said o boy u almost fooled me sha, the guy laugh and said u got me nice one and dropped the call...

There are lot of scammers out there who will try to scam you all in the name of giving you employment abeg be careful.

Nope... Not me!

I can always smell a scam even a mile away!

I thank God for the wisdom!

My rule remains:

If it's too good to be true, it definitely isn't

Same approach to relationships... I trust no one! undecided

He said that the person who scammed him is a YORUBA GUY, how does that equate to him calling all Yorubas scammers?

And what if he fed from the soil, drank the waters and bleeped Yoruba toto, why should that hamper him from saying the truth?

This type of passive-aggressive bullying is what you Yoruba cows are known for.
