Fraudsters disguised as Opay agents in Whatsapp group exposed

On September 18, a young Nigerian, Gbenga, exposed a WhatsApp group operated by scammers operating as OPay agents to dupe innocent unsuspecting citizens.

OPay payment platform is speedily gaining ground in Nigeria as well as its extended service- Otrike, Oride, and Ofood. This makes them the best guise for scammers who look to take advantage of the Company’s infancy as many Nigerian are aware of the brand but are not grounded on what Opay is all about.

Two Nigerians identified as Edwin Adebayo and Nelson according to chat screenshots created a money-doubling Whatsapp group disguised as Opay agent. They invited several Nigerians into the Whatsapp group where only them, the admins, can send a message.
