According to the man who took to his Instagram page to report the incident, the Indian man claimed he needed to sell the phone to raise cash to travel back to his country. But he only realised the phone was fake after he had parted with N100,000
I got the shock of my life today, I wanted to change phone so I contacted a guy that assured me that he will get me a very good one. I was driving when I received a call from the guy, that someone wants to sell his phone, that I should hurry down.
I got there, he introduced me to one Indian guy, that the Indian guy wants to sell his phone, what I saw was a galaxy s9 plus, I asked him how much, he said 250k, that he needed money to travel back to India because he was stranded.
I inspected the phone, not an extensive check though, I offered to pay 100k, he agreed, I immediately headed straight to the bank and withdrew 100k and handed it over to him.
I only realized that it was a fake phone he sold to me, when I noticed that it’s front camera was sealed with plastic after taking a very close look, To make things worse, that money wasn’t mine, I had the intentions of buying then resell at a higher price.
This phone looks so real! He even gave me the phone receipt, we even took pics together, find attached copies of the receipt, the phone and the Indian guy’s pictures. I know quite well that when this post get shared some people will make foul comments, but just pray not to face worse situation, Please beware
