Video: Reactions As The Fraudster Who Tried To Scam Mercy Eke Through A Phone Call Got Caught

Hours after it was reported that a media personality and former BBN housemate, Mercy Eke bought a G-Wagon, a video showing her conversation with a fraudster surfaced online.

Well, it's no longer news that scammers have devised different means they use in defrauding their victims. For example, some people try to do fraud online, while other people call random numbers and pretend to be your bank's customer care representative to get your bank and credit card details. For these reasons, some people have distanced themselves from social media, while others don't give out their bank details to anyone.

It would interest you to know that Mercy Eke was also a victim of local scammers who try to manipulate you to get your bank and credit card details. In a video posted by [email protected], the scammer asked her for a bank detail but Mercy gave him the wrong one. He kept asking her to retry. Mercy said maybe she should go to the bank to complain but the man kept asking her for the number. The scammer went on to ask her for the export date of her credit card but she replied to him by telling him to GO BACK TO SCHOOL. At this point, the scammer got angry and said "You are a foolish woman".
