Even this Cashless Nonsense we are currently going through now Is a Legitimate & Well Organized SCAM!!!

Legitimate & Well Organized SCAM happens all the Time and It's mostly done/orchestrated by Government and Well Established Institutions.

Never mind cashless, the monetary system itself is a well-oiled scam. See my post and quotes above. It is the government connection that confuses people. Example, they won't see the police force is a gang!

Thanks for the advice, I'll look more into these platforms.

I'm still open to freelance writing gigs if you have any to outsource.
as i said b4. Play you game well on those plateforms. Your samples and experience is what would get you clients. When you apply for any gig. Give them a load down of your experience. I would advice you to have your own blog too. I have 3 blogs with lots of content. I show the clients my blogs and they see that i am capable. That is what you should be doing, not just writing for others. Build your resume.

sorry about this, however pre-orders are not my line. With the amount involved i had initially thought its a visa related stuff which i intended to assist. Insha allah

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.
that family friend nko , did you curse the idiot?

I have been scammed by two Igbo man on different occasions.
The first one went away with my bags of crayfish worth 228k in may 2021.

The second one was in 2022, he carried away my laptop and scammed me and my friend of our money worth 300k
We were only able to get back the laptop when we involve the JTF at Rumuji in Rivers state. And he later promise to pay the money back, but with his family and some of the village heads they appeal for peace. Because I was ready to wipe him away and his family.

That is why when you see me been mad with the igbos mostly when it comes to having anything to do with business, these are the people that caused it.

Spot on bro. Example of what I was saying, does this now translate to saying no Igbo man has ever made it without duping or scamming anyone because of the act of few people among them? Because one idiot in my mention is raving mad cos of my take

Like i said you are Foolish.. Drawing out unfounded meaning from a simple statement he made. If he had said Urhobo man you for no talk. Foolishness is your heritage. You see how i dont call you other names but "Foolish"? Is because i might not know all but i am certain. 100% certain of your foolishness boy. I can even tell you to your face if you need me to.

In December, 2008 I was preparing to honour an invitation to Dubai for a literary forum. So, I wanted to have enough dollars for the trip. But I ended up buying fake dollars near Balogun Market on the Lagos Island. I was left in shock and did not travel to Dubai again.
If I had gone to Dubai that year, I would have been having a different life today. Because the writers in the UAE would have occupied me with their literary projects.
Please don't be discouraged. There will still be other opportunities to live a different. The future is bright.

I explained it in this video. It usually happens on JiJi


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpNjvoO0-Rc

You kept saying "jijii.ng scam".

You know you don't need to try so hard to put down a more established brand just to boost your YouTube channel proceeds.

You are smart enough to know it's not a "jijii.ng scam" but chose to keep pushing that narrative anyways. Good thing you're probably not worth much right now, their lawyers would have had a field day suing your sorry self

I was scammed early this year by a legit Police officer by name Ifiok working with the Ikot Akpanabia police division in Akwa Ibom state. Hoodlums held me around January and did away with my phone, I played cool all along and didn't want to take laws into my hands. I headed straight to the station to file a report, thereafter I was introduced to the officer in charge of tracking in the ICT dept. He demanded a hefty fee from me and i paid on full, even promising to add something to him if he delivers the job. I provided every info needed for a start. After few weeks, I started hearing stories from him, at a point he stopped taking my calls. To this day, I haven't been in contact with him. Is it safe to say I've lost confidence in the NPF just bcuz of one bad egg?

If you checked above, you will see where I quoted a guy that said two Igbo guys scammed him. Once again, your father is foolish. Now run along and go tell him that.
