By Nairaland Forum A suspect fraudster has reportedly confessed his role and the amount of money he got from the ₦7.3M fraud in Ondo state. The suspect identified as Adegoke Olaotan popularly known as Abounsi from Ondo town, confessed that he got the total sum of ₦620,000 from his victim—the money he further explained was enabled him buy maternity needs when his wife was pregnant in 2017.
The suspect along with others allegedly scammed their victim, Jayeola Adeola, in their shrines at different locations in Ondo town.
Adeola, who claimed that he lost about seven million and three hundred thousand Naira to the fraudsters within the space of three month, starting from June 2017, said he was a coordinator of marketers of GNLD’s products when he fell to their hands through a GSM recharge card pin sent to his phone line by the fraudsters.

When I opened it, it looked like a recharge card pin and with a short note that read ‘Fayemi sell this card and use the money for your transport fare home.’ I ignored the message because I had no body with such a name among my family members.
“As I got to my office on the following day, I discovered a missed call on my phone, so I thought the call had come in when I was on bike to the office hence I called it back. When the call was picked up, it was the voice of an elderly man I heard. The man was thanking me that they mistakenly sent a recharge card to me yesterday and that he discovered I didn’t load the card even after many hours. And I said to him that it was normal to do so because I knew it was a mistake. The old man started praying for me. And I told him he did not need to be praying for me on that because it was a normal thing. So he cut the call.”
Jayeola said the elderly man called him back a few minutes later, saying he had been praying for him because of his honesty.
