Beware, internet fraudster are using my name to scam on Facebook – Pastor Adeboye
He said the impersonators were fond of demanding money from unsuspecting members of the public and he (Adeboye) urged people to verify the authenticity of messages credited to him before heeding to such instructions.
He said, “Please be very careful what you easily fall for. There are some persons going around creating false Facebook pages or names, claiming they are Pastor E. A. Adeboye.
All you have to do is a search for them on Facebook and they will add you and then pretend to be me, telling you to send some money into an account and because they know you will obey me, they are using this as a new form of fraud. Please stop them and report those pages to Facebook so they can be stopped.”
Adeboye said a member of the church had reported to him on how he had been ordered by an impersonator to pay certain sums of money into a bank account for a trip to India.
Adeboye urge the public never to fall victim to such fraudster act.
