Talking about it online, the lady added she did not know what exactly came over her. She said she feels so stupid and helpless at the same time.
The lady with screenshots of the transaction asked both GTbank and Zenith bank to freeze the two accounts that were involved. She gave the details as:
"Sunday Anthony Osamaye 2415775643 Zenith Bank and Idoniye Taiye 0677731233 GT Bank."
I didn't know what I was doing
Sharing images of WhatsApp messages between them, the lady said:
“This man goes by the name “Mr Idris” and these are the messages. I don’t know what came over me. Even after calling him out as a scammer I still send more money. It truly was an out of body experience.”
The lady cried for help, saying she is trouble. Apart from the GH₵10,910 she borrowed, the lady also gave the man the money her father asked her to give someone.

"You weren't jazzed, you fell for your own trick. How on earth will you invest on a stranger and a business you know nothing about. They will not find him and you will not get your money back. This should be a lesson and warning to anyone who wants to get rich fast."
"I believe this is a new method to scam people, mine was a video call today, after reading I just thank God I didn't fall victim."
"Hmmm, this thing has happened to me before. I lost some money but I realised what was happening fast. Can’t say it’s jazz or otherwise, but the technique is to say you can’t get your money till you send more, and bc you don’t want to lose, you send again. Hope you get it back tbh."
"Am also a victim of this scammers. Mine was Norland investment. Same method they used for u. Saw the platform on my friends post on Facebook not knowing that my friend's Facebook account was hacked by the scammer. Since then, I don't pity those guys called yahoo boys."
