Popular Nollywood actor Frederick Leonard has opened up on why he believes victims of internet scam are as guilty as the imposters themselves.
The actor claimed to have been receiving messages from fraud victims about how imposters posing as him scam his fans of their hard-earned money has finally spoken up.
Fed up with the constant draggings and complaints, Freddie, who is on vacation currently, lashed out at the victims. He put forward that a person that gets scammed by means of impersonation must have indulged the scammer in the first place.
He shared screenshots of his chats with a female fan, he mentioned how the lady was almost smart until she chose to be evasive and wanted to play reverse psychology on him.
He warned his fans and followers to avoid coming to his dm and mail once they got scammed, and report to the necessary authorities instead.
In his words:
“I’m on Holidays so I have the time to attend to some nonsense. I have always said that the victims of internet scam by means of impersonation are as guilty as the imposters.
She was almost smart, but then chose to be evasive and wanted to play reverse psychology, not knowing that I’m on my period today. Everyone that got scammed indulged the imposter! If you get scammed (Obviously because you indulged) Do nit come to my mail or dm. Report to the local police/authority in your country, not me. I am not the FBI. I’m a filmmaker.
Freddie Leonard isn’t the only one to have been in such a situation. Actor Bolanle Ninalowo, Singer Peter Okoye, known as Mr P of the popular duo, Psquare, actress Bimbo Ademoye, to mention a few have all recently cried out in the space of days, over identity theft and warned their fans to be very careful so as not to become victims.
Actor Bolanle Ninalowo had to issue a disclaimer over an alleged fraudster impersonating him and using his pictures to blackmail a lady with her naked pictures.
