A young man in Nigeria has been detained by the police after using a fake alert to purchase N1 million worth of goods.
The young man was said to have been scamming people for a long time without ever being caught, but this time he was caught in the market trying to scam shop owner with a fake alert from his phone.
When the young bought the goods, he showed the trader a fake alert to show that he had paid. The victim was suspicious enough to notice that he had not received any notification that he had paid for the goods.
Before the police were informed, it is alleged that the irate market vendors attempted to beat him, the traders also stripped him and beat him to a pulp till the police arrive at the scene and arrested him.
