Popular Nigerian actress, Nkechi Blessing Sunday, has revealed that she was scammed of N750,000 by an online vendor.
The Nollywood diva said she paid for some items from the vendor who ended up blocking her days after receiving the money.
Nkechi Blessing ranted in a video posted on her Instagram page, while urging people to avoid sponsored adverts on furnitures.
She said that she contacted the seller who sent her an account number and claimed it was the distributor’s bank details.
The actress said she expressed concerns to the vendor, but still went ahead to transfer N750k to them and kept following up but the person was claiming not to have received the money.
However, on the day she made the video, she found out that the person has blocked her on all their platforms.
Nkechi Blessing said she was using herself as a scape goat to warn others to be wary of online vendors.
She said that when she wakes up everyday, she will rain curses on the person until he searches for her and sends the money.

Meanwhile a Caucasian man has taken to social media to reveal how he scammed people who tried to scam him. The young guy narrated how he was able to make more than $20,000 from defrauding a bunch of internet fraudsters.
According to the techie, he located the scammers through their investment videos online where they released WhatsApp numbers for unsuspecting victims.
He then contacted them and showed interest in making an investment of 20 thousand dollars and asked each of them how much returns they can guarantee. Excited by the thought of getting such amount from him, some of the cyber scammers promise paying him $140k by the end of the week.
The software engineer then created a fake version of CashApp and recorded a video of himself acting like he is sending $10,000.
However, he programmed it in such a way that made it to look like CashApp is withholding the money because of how large the sum is.
It then requests them to send him $50 to unlock the account so that they can access the 10k they thought he sent to them. He shared screenshots of his account statement showing how the unsuspecting scammers sent him amounts ranging from 50 dollars to 75 dollars, not knowing that they are being scammed.
