A Nigerian man has been caught purchasing quality phones worth N986,000 with a fake bank alert.
According to close sources, the man went into a phone store and bought a large number of phones. When asked to pay, he requested to use bank transfer. He was given the account details and after three minutes, he presented a message on his phone telling the phone sellers that he had been debited.
However, the phone sellers did not receive any credit alert. There was a brief argument between the customer and the seller, with the customer insisting on leaving the shop with the phones. He told the seller that the delay in the transaction was from their end, as he had received his own alert.
When some onlookers asked for the customer’s phone, he refused to hand it over to them. It was forcefully taken away from him and when the alert was checked properly, it was discovered that a number saved as "Bank Name" had forwarded a forged alert and all the customer had in his account was N3000.
The crowd beat the man until he confessed to using a fake bank alert to purchase the phones.
