Ah. I've had encounter with those scammers at that same main market in onitsha. My laptop fell into water and it stopped functioning then I took it to that market o. After scanning for a computer repairer's shop, I eventually saw a guy who claimed to be one. He quickly took me to his office and collected the laptop, but I was smart enough to notice that so many things are off. If he's truly a computer engineer, the laptops I saw in that office never looked like laptops brought for repair And the guy even had issues opening the back cover of the laptop.
Then he later came up with the bulllshit story that he's going to scan the laptop with a device that will detect all the faults in it, and that it costs a certain amount per kilobyte.
That was the red flag, because, from my little knowledge about computer there's no way such useless software is going to do anything meaningful.
I just collected my laptop from him and went out. I met two other guys again and they came up with the same story. I just had to return home that day. Then I went online, searched for a reputable engineer in onitsha and I called him personally and I later arranged a meeting with that one...
Bros, you still get the engineer contact?

If your item is to get to you from China, it will have to scale a lotta hurdles.
There is this ugly trend with customs officials drooling over electronic gadgets imported into Nigeria, especially thru AE. So they tend to slap depressing, inhibitory and mind boggling import duties on such items. Apple gadgets and Xiaomi appears to top the list. Know this that legally, the officials open up these packages to check what is in it, so they always know what is inside. So even if you originally bought it for cheap, you may end up paying more than you will had you bought it here. In the quite rarest of cases though, the item escapes custom's scrutiny.
Then there is this problem with hmmm, NIPOST. That one too na[i][/i] another story of either delayed, lost in transit or stolen item. Both scenarios bring the challenges to a high 70%
Now you may want to consider expedited shipping like DHL and Co to handle your item which gives you some assurances over NIPOST's inefficiencies and even quick delivery within 2 weeks with adequate tracking, but it will likely not escape custom's scrutiny.
Now there is also this "version" issue with Xiaomi mobile phones, something I'm yet to understand fully but which I believe will have experts about it on this thread. Chinese version, global version, Chinese ROM, global ROM are all the terms used and it is usually adviced that for Nigerian user, it is safer to go for one particular version over another.
There is also the problem of quality or product imitation from useless sellers on AE, although reading buyers' reviews on the sellers can save you the headache and help you identify authentic from fake sellers. There are also dedicated Xiaomi stores on AE which always sell original devices.
Then comes the issue of warranty. I'm not sure you can get that for mobile phones purchased on AE.
A clear advantage of AE over SLOT that I can think of is that exotic and new upgraded versions of products show up on AE much faster than they do on SLOT, although such devices eventually find their way into the Nigerian Market after a few months.
If you alternatively decide to get it from SLOT, you will be saved custom's wàhálà, you will physically see your device and probably have a few minutes of hands-on-experience before you make your decision to purchase, you gat no painful waiting period no matter how short and finally you get your warranty on purchased devices. Some warranties of some products in SLOT even go up to two years, I think. Opting for SLOT may mean you will pay higher though.
So I think purchasing your device locally will be a better option.
I myself have bought a phone only once on AE and deliberately it was a refurbished device. I am not comfortable buying new phone on AE. That was 4 years ago and a device as old as a Lumia device will only be available as refurbished. It was a Lumia 1520 (being a Windows phone/Nokia fan). Custom's wàhálà was not this rife then and even if it was, I doubt they'll drool over an unpopular Windows device as they will over apple. I still plan to purchase mobile phones on AE in the nearest future, but mainly vintage ones, just for the keeps and just to stand a little different from the pop culture of sophisticated devices. I love the idea of spotting a flip phone/device from yesteryears. My options for now are Nokia 3250 (had one before that I bought brand new 16 years ago), Motorola RAZR, and maybe the Lumia 950xl.
How many years experience do you have?
YOUR REPLIES ARE SO DETAILED.
Thank you very much.
I really do appreciate
| Technology Market / Re: This Thread Is Only For Aliexpress Shopper by Chrisbella24(f): 12:56am On Aug 21|
You should have also included the screenshot of the total cost (including shipping) on AE. That way peeps will know the price difference.
Also in the Jumia price since the item is Jumia global item, quote the total costs including price of item plus customs clearing price plus "shipping to Nigeria" cost. Then proper comparison between the costs on Jumia and AE can be made to see if it is worth the stress or not.
Edited: I just checked back the Jumia screenshot and it seems the item is not Jumia global. Meaning it is likely already on ground and total cost is 34k including 1k shipping.
So provide AliExpress screenshot of the item's total cost for better comparison.
OMo, the way you answer questions here ehn?
I get question wey I wan ask.
I want to order Redmi note 8(2021).. Should I go ahead and order? (this is cheaper tho) Or just get it from slot here in Nigeria (To avoid stories that touches)

Naso one dey talk yesterday say Cubana worth $1B and alot of traders in onitsha main market are dollar billionaires lol. . Do these guys even know what $1B is .. even Messi no worth that amount.. even ronaldo the most followed celeb on Instagram just clocked $1B recently . Pogba, Neymar , Beckham them no worth that amount with all their investments , there are only 2700 billionaires in the world yet na one trader for onitsha con worth billions in dollars. Their excuse is usually that they no dey Forbes list na why .

What does he do? I have Google him, I still don't know the reason why he's rich. I don't know the strength of his staff, I don't know what he's paying as tax to the government but he has the gut to oppress the poor with his wealth.
If not that EFCC and the FIRS are useless, they will brim their searchlight to everyone on this list. Are those people on the list paying their staff well and are they paying their fair share of taxes.
Have you seen the state of your account?
So I totally understand where this frustration is coming from..

Chai this sokoloan ehn if them call u for money and u nor get mind ur own don finish
Lemme drop a story of how sokoloan almost ruined my friend and I
Last yr a close friend took a loan from sokoloan , he always pays back before due date , that's how he was given larger amounts , imagine collecting 50k to pay 56k in just two weeks just imagine
A time came he couldn't meet up , I noticed my friend has lost weight and he had no job at that time , he couldn't open up to me until they started threatening him with soldiers , luckily I had some funds with me so I cleared it up for him
As time goes I needed funds urgently for something , I have a good account history , they had my bvn in fact all my account info that's how the operate
I made a call directly to their company line and we had a long conversation with one of their staff while they were accessing my account, the finally agreed to lend me 250k
Truth be told I was waiting for the worst , and I was to pay back in the weeks and the total money I'm to pay is 285k E sbock u abi , in two weeks o
I paid the money in just 8 days , I had cash in my other account but I intentionally wanted to show them shege
The offered me 300k to pay back 335k I another two weeks
I paid back in just 6days , they were amazed
One day I got a call from one of their staff saying they have a gift for me that I should drop my address, I told them I've already dropped my address in the beginning, (wrong address) the brought me a mosquito net and two pen and three note books , I tell them say mosquito they my house ?
I asked someone to receive the gift on my behalf on that wrong address
I later requested for 500k , I always call them directly , they gave me without hesitation omo I show them shege
They started threatening me with all manner of threats that the know of , they threatened me that they'll take my pictures to the shrine and get me mad , I laughed loud on the phone
It came to a time they were trying to play calm with me knowing all their threats aren't working , till date 1 kobo Dem nor collect
I know someone will say why would I do that
But why would they be sending different sms to your contacts labelling you a criminal over little money with their large interest , they're the real criminals
It's been over 9 months they've not called me , nor texted me and me sef nor even dey Africa not to talk of naija , I've changed my bank infos long time ago
If you must take a loan , be prepared for the worse and the worse they can do is to try to ruin ur image that's all
So before u get any load ensure you delete all ur phones contacts and write them on a book , never you save a contact on ur phone that will bring u a disgrace before them go send your crush say you steal company money
You're a Thief bro.
A very big Thief

Can I get your Email?

| Technology Market / Re: This Thread Is Only For Aliexpress Shopper by Chrisbella24(f): 6:26am On May 27|
Yes is $100, someone said you either negotiate with the seller to pay with different cards, or you create a visual card either using berter by flutter Wave to do that, although even me I tried creating the visual card using berter but their dollar rate is way too high i saw 501 to1$ so I paused the process. To get better understanding just go to page 513 read comment from there to this current page you will get a clearer understanding.
Thank you so much.

Am from abia state currently living in aba...
Am a tailor but I want to relocate to another state..
And the only place I can think of is uyo...
Pls I want to know if the tailoring work is really paying there,because people keep saying that there no money in that city that they are very poor pls advice me .
You better stay in aba.
Don't even waste money going to that dead city.
Stay in Aba and market your skill online.
I know someone that has a tailor in aba and he is based in Lagos.
He sends his measurements and the tailor waybills his clothes.
Uyo is bad for business.
| Business / Re: I Need Fabric Seller From Aba by Chrisbella24(f): 11:19pm On Apr 11|
you better look for time and go there yourself, you will get everything you need. Don't look for who will send the materials down to you because you will be disappointed. Make out time go to ABA yourself, you will see what you are seeking. Don't send anyone because they will scam you.
