I remember the afternoon that my younger brother called me that he has gotten a scolarship to study in the UK and they needed him to pay 150,000 as initial deposit.
I immediately told him it was a scam but my father said I was wrong and if I didn’t want to support my brother, that I should not discourage him.
They later sent me a website of one Watford university and some international phone numbers, and immediately I opened the link, I further confirmed it was fake because the quality of the website was very poor. and it says .com instead of ac.uk for UK schools. I warned them but they disagreed , my father said the number is a UK landline.
I did the final test by calling the number, immediately a lady picked and she was talking like a market woman , I laughed , I tried the second number anonymously and a guy picked , I just asked him ” Guy how far? how far nah? and his response was Kele Kelechi , where you dey? I told my father but they still did not listen to me..like those people jazzed them🤦🏾♂.
6 months later my younger brother told me they had paid the 150,000kand the School later requested for 200,000 because he was going for a Degree and not Diploma and they even paid another 70,000. They decided to hide everything from me until I found out.
My father later called me to help them retrieve the money , I asked them to visit police station , they were unable to get anything. The criminals were using ATM to remove the money at WUZE PLAZA. I asked my father, why they paid International school fee into a nigerian bank account and they were just looking at me. Just imagine!
