Yours truly just received information about a 419ner / dupe and thief masquerading on Nairalist.com and advertising the product below:
A NEWLY IMPORTED MOSQUITO ZAPPER/KILLER ARE FOR SALE, IT ATTRACTS AND KILLS ANY TYPE OF MOSQUITO AND INSECTS,WE HAVE THE ONE THAT USES ELECTRICITY WHICH IS SOLD FOR #4000 AND THE RECHARGABLE ONES WHICH CAN BE RECHARGED AND CARRIED ABOUT,IT IS SOLD FOR #2200 ONLY,WE HAVE THEM IN LARGE QUANTITIES AND DISTRIBUTORS ARE WELLCOMED CALL 08038715926
Date: Wednesday, 10 June, 2009 (2 weeks ago)
Location: Idimu, Lagos State, Nigeria.
A friend of your’s truly (LD) unfortunately contacted the guy at 08038715926 and a deal was struck to purchase 2-units of the above mosquito repellant.
LD paid NGN6,000.00(six thousand Naira) since Wednesday into the Oceanic Bank Account with details:
name: Ifeanyi Chukwu K George
account number: 233-000-100-9279
Mr Ifeanyi George has since disappeared, hasn’t produced the goods and isn’t picking up his phone number. FFO has tried calling the above MTN number with other numbers and disguising as a fresh enquirer – and George is still doing his sales.
I believe this calls for Nairalist.com admin to put strategies in place to verify the identity of product sellers on his website, before their adverts are published, else, he and Nairalist.com might become a tool in the hand of fraudulent web-surfers.
p.s: looking at the picture closely, you’ll notice Adobe Photoshop playing around.
