As usual, I got up in the morning and was going about my normal business.
In the afternoon, I got a text message from a Vodafone number. The message read:
“Cash in rèiceved for GHS 150.00 from ASSEMBLIES.OF.GOD .VENTURES
Current alance GHs 450.available balancè Ghs450
Another text followed, it read:
MTN MoMO Fraudsters New Trick Exposed
This is the number that called and tried to scam me.
“Dear, Values Customer Your MM PIN Has Been << BLOCKED>> By MOMO HeadDepartment…….”
I knew it was all a scam so I was expecting their call. Immediately, my phone rang.
I picked the call up and these m0f0s wasted my time.
The first call was from a dude who claimed that he had mistakenly sent money to my account. He noted that he is a MoMo vendor and had to call the MTN office to block my number.
He then pleaded with me and said I should hold on while he called the MTN office to have my MoMo unblocked. Lol.
I played along and then he called an MTN customer care line, apparently -you should watch the video.
Long story short, they couldn’t get a dime from me and tried to salvage the situation. As a man living in Accra, I had to give it to them till they runoff.
