A shop owner has cried out for help after being defrauded by two fraudsters at the popular Emab plaza in Wuse 2 area of Abuja.
According to sources, the suspected fraudsters pretending to be customers, came to the shop to purchase a Tecno phantom 8 of N110,000 and pretended that the money was in their car so somebody should accompany them to collect it.
After the man escorted them and counted the money (which was in N1000 notes), he gave them the new phone.
The ‘customers’ reportedly didn’t bother to collect receipt saying it wasn’t necessary only for the man to return to the shop to discover the bundle of 1000 naira notes has “changed” to 100 naira notes.
The money had only two notes of N1000 which were used to hide the torn 100 naira notes.
This left the shop owner devastated and wondered how the scammers did it.
It has been alleged that the scammers might have swapped the real money with “fake notes” after the man had counted it.
