There is a scammer who’s been going around defrauding women around the world especially Canadian women.
His aliases are as follows:
Reuben Yusuph, Lucky Mike, Ajibola Reuben Yusuph, and Williams Bab Rice. There is a possibility that he has other names.
His telephone number is most likely: 2347028751653 which means that he is probably resident in Nigeria. He has also been collecting money by WESTERN UNION with this name: Ajayi Olayinka Adedayo which may probably be his real names or the names he had on an identity card/international passport that is tenable at a bank.
This scammer may be resident at room 11b in a certain Hotel called Paragon Hotel. It is very possible that the scammer is actually not staying at the hotel.
However the Paragon Hotel in Lagos is at this address:
Paragon Hotel: Address: 24/26 Sanya Street, Aguda, Surulere, Lagos
Phone: +234 1 833615, 848634, 848802
None of these information are actually indicative that the perpetrator is Nigerian or resident in Nigeria. In the scam world, anything is possible!
I have it on good authority that this scammer succeeded in duping gullible women from Canada but I don’t know if he is still on the rampage possibly operating under other names.
Here is a report from one of the women who had been a victim:
To whom it may concern,
I am a Canadian that would like to know if you have ever heard of a man in Nigeria that would have a scam going on contacting woman, on sites like FaceBook and others stating that there are other that Nigerians.
He starts by contacting you in a very friendly way in getting you to be very open with him and then that day come that he would ask you for money…
For some reason or another, we have here many names but it seems to be the same person, same picture and he has many e-mail addresses, and phone numbers.
For us to reach him but it all come down to making up stories that he needs money for …….
I would like you to be aware of this… . we are more than 20 woman that have spoken to this man and we all got the same story I believe that he does not work alone, he says he is in spain, working for a Architec co. and that he lives in the States, you can see his profile explaining it all.
Some of us have reason to believe that this man is a fraud just trying to get Money. I have caught him under so many names and stories that were lies, I just want to know if there is a way to find out more about this scam .
I do know that your country is in need of many new structure and that your people suffer but taken from us is this way does not make things any better for you, and the innocent get punished for what the bad ones do…
I feel sorry for these women but again, it takes a greedy person to make a scammer succeed. That is my own personal opinion. If someone ask you for money and promise to give you more money later, common sense dictate that that is simply fraud. It is so unfortunate that victims of fraud always fail to see this and they are so blinded by the promise of earning millions of dollars from nowhere!
Anyway, I hope that all those who are interested in avoiding being defrauded or those who are not sure if a business proposal is true or false will learn a lesson from this. Don’t do business someone who is promising you money by asking you to send a few dollars first.
The fraudster will always come back asking for more and more and before you know it you would have sent thousands of dollars. Scammer keep promising and keep asking for little amount at a time but these little amounts add up at the end of the day.
The fraudster is probably using the pictures of innocent people. I think that the pictures that go with his scam mails have nothing to do with his real person.
I have not succeeded in putting up the images that this guy is using to defraud people but I have it on my FACEBOOK AT THIS LINK
