The impersonator created an account on Instagram claiming to be the official account of Mrs. Foluke Adeboye on

Then the impersonator sent a private message to Mr. Michael Chima to pray for him. And afterwards, sent the following messages yesterday, June 1, 2017.
"The lord ministered a word to me about you, he said you have a great destiny even more than you think,he said there is an opportunity coming your way this  year (2017) that will totally change your life, he said you should sow just any thing he  ministered to your heart, into the life of this baby born with tumor on her face and her head by Today before 12:00pm that if this is done as soon as possible, your  blessings will overfill the earth..
You are blessed, Kindly pledge your seed directly to the baby's parent bank details stated below Today before 12:00pm

Give as the Lord as prosper you and get back to me for further instruction.Obedience maybe costly, but the end result is priceless.
Mr. Michael Chima was suspicious of the messages, because both Pastor Adeboye and his wife have never made such requests before. He sent N1, 000 (one thousand naira) to the bank account and the Guaranty Trust Bank PLC confirmed the deposit.
Amt: NGN1,000.00 DR
Desc: TRANSFER BETWEEN CUSTOMERS-from : EKENYERENGOZI MICHAEL CHIMA to OLARENWAJU YEMI AMINAT
Then he reported to the RCCG to confirm if the Instagram account belonged to Pastor Adeboye's wife and the church sent him the genuine Instagram account for @PastorFAAdeboye https://www.instagram.com/pastorfoluadeboye/.

He has reported the fraudster to the RCCG and Guaranty Trust Bank PLC.

There are notorious Nigerian fraudsters engaged in different internet scams by using different impersonations to defraud many people through emails and social network sites. The most infamous are the legendary "419" Yahoo-Yahoo Advance Fee Scam artists and Phishing fraudsters who  have used fax and later Yahoo emails to defraud many foreigners in America and Europe  from the 1980s to date.

Majority of online scams originate primarily in the United States, the United Kingdom and Nigeria, with Ivory Coast, Togo, South Africa, Benin, the Netherlands, and Spain also having high incidences of such fraud. The scam messages often claim to originate in Nigeria, but usually this is not true.
