A fake gadget page on Instagram (@phonegadgets.ng) has been accused of duping people of their hard earned money.
An Instagram user @mayor_of_bayelsa, fell victim to the act and emailed popular port Harcourt Instagram blog (@portharcourthawties__ ) about this page and how they duped him with proof of them scamming him of his money.
He sent then a DM with proof
"I paid eighty thousand naira (80k) in installments on Friday. At first, he said that the minimum deposit in the company is one-hundred thousand naira (100k); I later sent twenty thousand naira (20k) to complete the balance I owed.
On Monday, I added one hundred and fifty five thousand naira (155k) to make it two hundred and fifty five thousand naira (255k)."
His fake page has been growing
He has gotten three thousand (3k) followers since last week.
He was at 17.4k followers, now he is at 17.7k followers.
The said @phonegadgets.ng has changed their business name in the last 12 months more than 15 times (see picture below)
