Fraudster defrauded by potential victim
A fraudster who tried to play a fast one on a potential victim, eventually got defrauded by her. According to @_Peesee, she got a call from someone who posed as a customer care representative from a bank.
However the potential victim who was quite smarter than the fraudster, defrauded him and got him to send airtime to her. Read her tweets below;
This 08163288975 called me as a customer service from my bank. I asked which bank and the young man replied don’t you know ur bank. I insisted he told me which bank & mumu said first bank. I don’t have account with first bank but I played along.
He asked me to give him my ATM card no and my email. My password for e transfers so my blocked account can be opened on Saturday morning. I told him I will text him the info but I was in a hurry to get go out. After 30min he called back I told him I have. Typed out the info on my phone but no airtime to send it. That since my account was blocked I couldn’t do a top up from my account. That he should hold on till Monday when am boxed up. That’s how he said he will assist me and he did a top up of 200 naira.
He called to confirm if I have seen it, I told him I haven’t seen , he said he hasn’t gotten alert of the deduction so he retried again and I have 400 naira free card from a scammer. He now called to inform me he has sent the card. I innocently told him to wait I will send it now. I replied thanks for the Card, but I don’t use first bank. Bros called me and started shouting send my card back or I will go to bank on Monday and reverse it.
