A Black man known as Joseph James Nantomah has taken to his Instagram account to reveal how he helped a white lady recover her money from some scam syndicate.
In a post on Wednesday, April 28, the man said he drove for hours after $32,000 (N13,077,120.00) was sent into his account.
He disclosed that after the deposit was made into his account, the scammers called him, asking him to send the money.
