Nigerian widow in shock after loan app owner publishes fake obituary of her

A Nigerian widow identified as Modupe Elizabeth Oladipupo has cried out for help after a loan company she contacted a while back, published a fake obituary of her, in a bid to get some money off her.

In a chat with LIB, Oladipupo said on May 22, she contacted the loan company and asked for a loan of N13, 000. She said when the process was completed, she was credited the N13, 000 and told she would pay N20, 000 in return. Oladipupo said she immediately contacted an agent of the company and told them she was no longer interested as the interest demanded, was too much. Oladipupo said she immediately returned the money to the account provided. 

She said she was shocked to receive a call from a lady from the company identified as Chioma Patience, saying she owes them N10, 000. She said all her explanation to the lady fell on deaf ears as the lady insisted she owes them N10000 and that they will tarnish her image if she failed to pay back. She told LIB that she was shocked to receive calls from family and friends inquiring about her welfare after the lady sent a poster of her image and a write-up claiming she was ill and needed some money.

She said she has reported the matter to the police and that the officers contacted the lady who insists she will not stop tarnishing her image until the money she “owes” her company is paid.

Oladipupo said the female representative of the loan company went further to create her obituary and has forwarded same to her phone contacts.

Oladipupo said she went to the loan app to seek financial help after she was attacked by one-chance robbers who cleared her savings of N400, 000.
