A local man has the internet laughing after sharing screenshots from one super hilarious scammer on social media. It seems the fraudster had been catfishing as Rihanna and, hoping to make a little extra cash, had inboxed a 'fan' for some much-needed financial assistance.
Heading online, Twitter user @mizar shared the entertaining message he received.
"I thought it was a scam till she said 'Oh nah nah'," he captioned the post tongue-in-cheek.
The texts suggest 'Rihanna's computer had been ransacked by a virus and that the musician needed a little extra money to make sure her album got released.
