Hey! have anyone noticed the new crop of beggars on the go now? The online beggars. This is become a craze in face book, you better watch out for them. These beggars made up of mostly young ladies and young men have different style of operation, they are so skill at their methods of begging now.
The ladies join groups, they get their victims through face book groups were they are members. Most of these young ladies belong to as many as 100 to 600 plus groups on face book. For what ? one may ask. Yes, for targeting and begging members that they think are well to do.
They join, then send post of being in need to admin to post on their behalf or target members whose profile they have checked and seen that they are ok financially to make demands, ranging from child care money to rent due to evacuation or financial help towards business.
These young ladies are very smart at this cyber begging and it is like they have a syndicate now targeting groups or individuals on face book or what sap. Some go to the length of using kids to beg. Before now, they post their real photos but recently they have change their game plan like a friend mentioned. They now use photos (Atutupoyoyo) kids in batchas (make shift homes) to solicit for the money.
Their demands range from money for a child’s health condition to being a single parent, or husband losing job or facing financial struggles to a new business premises or start a business. These clever face book scammers are between the ages of 20 to 28 or there about, from all l see looking for money for fashionable clothes and shoes.
Mothers be careful who you leave your baby for because you don’t know what they are up., they might just be taking photos with your child to post as theirs to beg money on face book.
For the guys, they hack face book accounts and send messages to every name under the friend list to ask for money This is pathetic. They are growing everyday, these cyber/Facebook/WhatsApp beggars. They are always on the watch like hunters ready to pounce on their prey.
Be aware, these are some examples of messages from some of these beggars to a group.
It is quite interesting that that no one can really tell who is in need now on face book due to so much begging. Please there are many genuinely in need in our society but if the ones who are scammers keep coming up, then those who are truly in need would never get help. For one a person who can not afford to feed her kids wont have a thousand Naira to buy data to be online because I won’t leave my hungry kid or kids to buy data to browse on face-book when that one thousand can prepare something for them.
Lets be frank and stop it is getting so embarrassing, this present begging and it doesn’t portray a good image of our young ladies at all. Its better to just go pan handling so everyone knows you are begging. This is a scam.
