A supermarket located in Ajah, Lagos, has allegedly fallen victim to the trickery of a Nigerian scammer. The fraudster who is a young man had bought items worth N90,000 and made payment for them using fake currency.
As gathered by Legit.ng, the unidentified scammer, who was wearing a T-shirt, pair of shorts and a black face cap as at the time the incident happened, reportedly dribbled the three attendant sales representatives in the Nigerian supermarket in Ajah into believing he paid with N90,000 notes.
He successfully did this with his witty ways and suave moves. It was not until he left that it was discovered that he had paid for his goods with fake money.
However, thanks to the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) camera present in the shop, the owner of the shop as well as the sales representatives were able to pick on the guy and spot his face.
To ensure that he is brought to the feet of justice, a video of him counting the fake naira notes with which he made payment was posted on the Instagram page of Adorable_diva91 who is probably the owner of the supermarket where the daylight robbery was committed.
The lady who shared the post also added a caption in which she promised anyone who was able to identify and lead the police to the suspect a sum of N50,000. She also made a plea that Nigerians should take the search for the suspected criminal very seriously so that he would not perpetrate such act anymore.
