Lady Cries Out After Scammers Are Making Use Of Her Pictures To Scam Nigerians

A Customs official has been forced to react out as her pictures are being used by scammers regularly to defraud unsuspecting victims. National Helm earlier reported how a man raised an alarm after falling victim to the scam of a fake Customs official on Facebook.

It was revealed that a particular lady, who goes by the name Ademola Victoria on Facebook, with a profile picture which depicts her as a customs woman, has been discovered to be nothing but an Internet fraudster. The fake account holder has been sending friend requests to people, and whoever falls into that carefully arranged scam by confirming her as a friend is liable to automatically become a prospective victim.

A young graduate, who ignorantly fell victim to the scam, narrated how the scammer who posed as a Customs official gained access to his information on Facebook in the process of looking for a Customs job.

The Customs official identified as Izekor Helen Nosa whose pictures were used for the scam has reached out to National Helm. Below is the mail she sent in;
