From Abuja to Lagos! This Facebook chat between a blog reader and a girl will crack you up (Peep)

Oh dear! A reader sent me this Facebook conversation he had with a girl who claims she's in Abuja and needs to come to Lagos tomorrow. She is asking him to help her with transport fare to Lagos, but according to him, they've only exchanged a few hellos once in a while, so he smelt a rat. He said he just knew the girl wanted to scam him so he asked her to send her details so he can book a flight for her but babe insisted she wanted to come by bus. Lol.

He swears there are a lot of girls like this on social media looking for cheap money to obtain from unsuspecting men. Please ladies, this is so wrong, the guy even changed his own Facebook name and left the girls name and when I checked her up on Facebook, my heart literally broke at how low a beautiful girl would stoop.

Last week, 5 star entertainment artiste, Harrysong showed off wads of N500 naira notes on his Instagram page and some doubting Thomas's on his page accused him of posing with borrowed money. So this week, Encomium magazine took him up on the matter and he deflated the allegations, saying he works hard for his money and that the monies he flaunted were all his. Below is what he said:
"How can I borrow money and flaunt it on social media? It will be stupid of me to do that. It is my money. I went for a show in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state. The organizers were to pay into my account but they didn't. Instead I was given cash. It was a concert organzied for students of a tertiary institution in Uyo. It is money from my hard work."
