Princewell wary of scammers defrauding public

04 August 2015, 08:52Okoro Chinedu

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.”

He urged followers to be vigilant and disregard personal messages asking them to pay monies into strange accounts.

Despite the alleged scams, Princewell pledged to continue interacting with followers.

“My phone number has not changed. I am not the kind of politician you (followers) see once in four years. So feel free to get in touch.”
