Fake Instagram shopping operator arrested by EFCC

A fraudster, Afolabi Ojo, who operates a fake Instagram shopping channel has been arrested by operatives of EFCC, Ibadan Offfice.

Afolabi’s arrest came after a complaint was laid sometime in June, 2017. The victim who was window shopping on Instagram,
came across some slippers and shoes on a page “Best Classic Store” owned by one Kemisola with WhatsApp number 08106802815 displayed on the page.

The victim further disclosed that the sum of N53,000 was paid for some items purchased on the online store (Best Classic), into an account purportedly owned by one Oyebola Olasunkanmi with account number 0027735703 domiciled in one of the first generation banks.

Strangely thereafter, the suspect not only refused to deliver the goods, but went incommunicado. Hence, the suspect was reported to the EFCC. On arrest, Ojo who is also a student of the Polytechnic, Ire, Osun State confessed to being the one
posing as ‘Kemisola’ on Instagram, to deceive people especially ladies into patronizing him.
