Pastor Adeboye Impersonator Scammed my Father


A young woman has shared her story online (Lailasblog) telling how a man impersonating a popular clergy scammed her father. She said her pensioner dad was scammed by a man who claimed to be Pastor Adeboye of the Reedemed Christian Church of God. She said after her father made the payment of his widow's mite, he informed her and she felt uneasy about it. She discovered there were many accounts on Facebook that bore the name Enoch Adejare Adeboye and she could not recognize the real one.

She advised Nigerians to be more careful in their association with people in the quest for miracles or prayers especially on social media.

Below is what she shared:

*****************************
My Daddy, (A pensioner in his 60s) got scammed yesterday by a man claiming to be Daddy Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. I have observed that a lot of these fraudsters are on social media under the guise of prominent individuals like Pa Adeboye.

After my Dad made the payment of his widow's mite, he called to inform me and I felt terrible, so then I searched the name Enoch Adejare Adeboye, and found out the 'plenty many' accounts that exist on Facebook, I couldn’t recognize the real one myself, so I started adding up all the supposed 'Enoch Adejares', lo and behold, one of them responded and the attached conversation 1, 2, 3, ensued.

Please Nigerians, let's be a lot more careful in our association with people, and our quest for miracles or prayers especially on social media, as most of these accounts are FAKE. Remember, we are 'small gods'. God can answer our prayers if we cry out to him with our own little voice.

My advice to all prominent individuals/Nigerians is also that they get their social media accounts verified, for many of us who might not know what this means, it is a little tick beside a prominent individuals's profile on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter e..t.c) that validates the authenticity of a particular account.

Once this individual's account has this tick, all other accounts are considered FAKE. Nigerians Beware!

Below are screenshots showing how the scammer went about scamming the lady's father:
