Budding Nigerian Singer, King Bernard has taken to his Instagram page to narrate how he was scammed off 450K Naira by an Instagram beggar who claimed he was about to lose his University Admission.
King Bernard said though the beggar asked for the sum of forty-five thousand Naira only, he erroneously added another ‘zero’ which made it Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira and after it was sent the beggar blocked him on IG.
Sharing Screenshots from their conversation, he wrote;
This is so sad! honestly, a fan sent me DMs asking for help with some cash (u all know i often do giveaways on dis page, but asides that, i also get a lot of such DMs)
I decided to help him bcos he’s a student and his university admission was at risk.
but see what I got (swipe left to see conversations). He begged for me 45k, I mistakenly sent it with an extra zero, I sent N450k🤦🏽♂ He blocked me afterwards.. like seriously! whatdf!😡
some people will be like N450k seem like small money for an artiste.. but I’m not earning so much yet, like I’m not yet big like dem Starboy, Davido🤦🏽♂ I’m just sure someone out here knows him and can help reach him. his IG is @jamesogar1 😒
If i even give dat extra 400k to other fans here like 10k each, that’s some smile on plenty faces 40 people, instead on just one selfish ingrate!😞
i’ll really feel much better😕
