"Inspiration: Use 30k invite like 10 girls, give each 3k Tfare. When they refuse to show up, go to Enugu court. 150 * 10 is 1.5m.
"No say I no cut soap for you ooo."
"We need someone to help us file a case against urgent 2k too, that request is killing guys."
"They don't need to rush to Enugu court. All they need is to reference the judgement to gain lawsuit."
"Good judgement and guys it’s in the law ooo so take advantage of it if them wan scam you urgent 2k and don’t show up."
Lady drags man to court for exposing her after she didn't show up at his place
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that a Nigerian man was dragged to court by a lady who he exposed over her failure to show up at his house after he sent her GHC20 transport fare.
Narrating why he dragged her, Lubem said they became good friends on Facebook after a series of chats.
According to him, Kor said she had wanted to know him better and this made him send her GHC20 to come over as her place wasn't far from his. Lubem said she had actually told him her t-fare was GHC7 but he sent an extra GHC13 to demonstrate his generosity.
