A Nigerian woman called Susan Eyo-Honesty has taken to her social media page to share her experience with an online store called Psalm 23.
According to her, the store sells bags, shoes, and things that have to do with ladies. She stated that they post beautiful things that are affordable.
Susan said that she thought the online store was owned by a lady as she saw in the display photo. She went ahead to choose some items for herself and a friend as Salah gift.

After making payment, the woman said that she stopped hearing from them except when they sent her a text message that her stuff would arrive soon. Sadly, it never arrived.
The woman noted that she went back to the social media page of the store and they had deleted all the photos and that was when she realised that she had been scammed.
" I fell bad because there are so many people doing legitimate business and characters like this are going to give a bad name to online store owners and making people hesitant to want to do business. What is even painful is that I checked him up on google and found out he's a young guy. Had pictures of him in the church and had pictures of him carrying a son," she said.
The woman also shared a number of things to take into consideration before patronising an online store.
"Any site that just has a telephone number, no address of where the store is located, you cannot speak directly with the person, please beware," she said.
