A young lady simply identified as Wonubaby (@wonuola_xxx) has cried for help after she lost over one million naira to scammers via phone call.
Wonubaby, in a series of tweet said, “Please I really need help right now from anybody. We need to place two account on hold. Sunday Anthony Osamaye 2415775643 Zenith Bank and Idoniye Taiye 0677731233 GT Bank. I just got scammed of 1 million naira. I got repeated calls from an unknown number yesterday afternoon.
“He had been calling me consecutively for days so I eventually answered out of frustration. He proposed an investment plan to me of which I didn’t say yes to but he proceeded to send me his account details after the call ended. On getting the message I proceed to send him all my savings of 400,000 naira. And then went ahead to borrow 600,000 naira from my friends and even my father’s manager. It felt like an out of body experience. I don’t know what came over me, what jazz he had used on me or even how he got my number in the first place.
“Everyone I asked to borrow me money even willingly sent it because I am not the type to borrow money from anybody so they assumed it was an emergency. This is very unlike me and I feel so stupid, lost and helpless. I honestly don’t know what came over me and I need help because I am in trouble. I don’t know how I can get out of this. @accessbank help I have emailed you and this is the reply I received.
“This man goes by the name “Mr Idris” and these are the messages. I don’t know what came over me. Even after calling him out as a scammer I still send more money. It truly was an out of body experience even the money my father sent me to send to someone else I sent it to the man. That is something I would never do. Please I’m in trouble I really need help.
“And I just kept sending more and more. I don’t know how this kept happening over and over again. I don’t joke with my money and I would never borrow money from people especially to send to someone else. Even my friends know I don’t borrow money.
