The picture above is idumota and this is one of the many scams in Lagos.
One of the men in green will approach you saying this is a â€œfree game, promo or bonanzaâ€ where you are given a card to mark seven random numbers out of 100. It is in your own best interest to walk away or you will be f****!
Once your attention has been gotten and you mark the 7 Numbers, you will be told you have won an item, usually a TV, Home theater, Standing fan or Stove in that blue bus in the picture above.
When you agree to this, you will be told to pay a token of N500 (registration fee) to claim the price, with which you will be given another option to either get the money the itemâ€™s worth or the item itself.
For example, if you are told you have won a standing fan, you will pay 10k extra to get the standing fan worth 25k.
Once the moneyâ€™s given, you will be told you just lost and willÂ be given a stove instead after paying. Imagine, a stove for 10k ??!!Â ðŸ¤¨
Realizing you have just been scammed and want to make a scene, a mob of area boys would come onto you and say, you just lost a gamble and wouldnâ€™t hesitate to beat you up if you refuse to leave.
These people are said to be untouchable as the police in that axis are fully aware of what they are doing and get their own share also, from this â€œshamâ€. (They tok say dem dey use juju sef!)
Everyone familiar with this â€œfree gameâ€ canâ€™t tell of this illicit venture, out of fear of being beaten or getting into trouble with the â€œpolice associatesâ€.
In the earlier picture above, the man in shirt is the boss and the guy standing next to him is the â€œagberoâ€ in charge of people to beat you up if you refuse to leave, the boys can be seen in the picture too. The woman in the picture is another victim, about to be scammed!
These syndicate have people acting like they won, claiming prices to convince those in doubts, knowing fully well when you see such, some level of trust or assurance is given.
They tell you itâ€™s a free game,when you are scammed, they tell you itâ€™s a gamble, lol..
Nothing is free in Lagosâ€¦
The bad news is, they do this everyday with people falling prey, I paid to know this, learn and tell people for free.
