Lagos – Labour Party politician and Prince of the Kalabari Kingdom of Rivers State, Tonye Princewell, has alerted members of the public of scammers using his name to defraud them.
“For my friends on the social media, it has been discovered that someone has opened a Facebook account with my name and is attempting to defraud people,” Princewell warned.
He said his Facebook accounts were active and easy to identify.
“I have only three personal accounts, and have not opened another. I understand this is a current trend for fraudsters; opening Facebook accounts with names and pictures of public figures, with the intention to dupe people.”
