Have you been scammed in any way and the scammer happens to be a fellow Nigerian, there is good news because you can recover your money following the guide on this page.
Most people have been scammed in one way or the other especially when in exchange business on WhatsApp, Facebook or Telegram. I have seen most of my friends being scammed when they try to exchange either PayPal funds, Payoneer or Btc.
Exchange your PayPal funds, btc and other e-currencies on platforms like WhatsApp with a trusted vendor is much cheaper but not really that safe because you can easily get scammed. If you have been scammed and you are looking for a way to recover your money then pay attention to this article.
Without much waste of time, let’s recover our stolen money…
How To Retrieve Your Money After You Have Been Scammed in Nigeria
More than 20% of social media users and shoppers have been scammed at one point or the other, either large bucks or small money and It’s quite painful.
Many people don’t always know what to do, so today am sharing with you things you do, when you realize a page you paid for a service or goods is ghosting you:
- Screenshot all previous chats across all messaging app (IG and WhatsApp or FB).
- Write out the Full name and account number of the page or person.
- Go to the last notification your bank sent you after you made the payment (via mobile app or text).
- Go to the last notification your bank sent you after you made the payment (via mobile app or text) copy out the “TRANSACTION ID NUMBER”.
- Go to any branch of the scam artist’s bank (the bank the scammer uses), ask to see the CUSTOMER SERVICE in charge of FRAUD.
- If you can, print out all those chats with the scammer, and submit it.
- While you are there, send an email to SCAMMER’S BANK and a copy to CBN FRAUD DESK *(firstname.lastname@example.org).* this will ginger the bank to take it up fast.
What should you expect from this? The culprit/suspects account will be PLACED ON HOLD.
Meaning he/she cannot transfer or withdraw until they visit the bank, and when they do, the bank will contact the police and the suspect when proven guilty will sign a waiver allowing the bank to refund your money.
To also quicken the process, you can report on twitter tagging @Cenbank and the scammers’ bank coupled with detailed screenshot containing chats and Transaction ID but I will suggest you send email first because the scammer might act faster than you if he/she notice.
