Former BBNaija housemate, Erica Nlewedim has shared her conversation with a scammer who posed as popular actor/model, Uti Nwachukwu.
The reality TV star took to twitter to recount the incident that happened in 2013, when she was still a teenager.
From the chat she shared, the scammer posing as Uti sent her a message on Facebook and gave the impression that he was scouting for models for a Billboard and Magazine ad.
Erica responded in the affirmative that she could handle the modelling task and their conversation moved to the BlackBerry chatting platform.
Although, she didn’t reveal the content of her BBM chat with the scammer, it was evident from their subsequent chat on Facebook that he had requested for the sum of N50,000 to promote her.
Sharing the screenshot of their chat, Erica wrote,
“Lmaooo this was when someone used a fake Uti to almost scam me.
A fake Uti account asked for my BBM pin when I was still a teenager and told me he was going to help me with my acting and modeling.
😂😂😂😂 I just checked Facebook messenger for the fake Uti I used to chat with in 2013 , this is the summary of the talks we had”.
