A Nigerian prankster nearly landed in trouble when he played a prank on residents of a community by making them believe he was charging only N200, for withdrawal of N5,000.
The content creator known as Bayuz posed as a POS operator who was offering very regular charges as against what is obtainable across the country amid the naira shortage.
He placed a sign along a busy road which read; POS Available, N200 charges for N5,000 and passersby kept stopping to patronise him seeing as most POS operators introduced ridiculous charges which includes N1,500 to get N5k and N4,000 to get N10,000.
In a video making the rounds online, Bayuz claimed that his brother was the one with the cash and made the people who wanted to withdraw to wait.
As the crowd kept growing, he kept putting a fake call across to his supposed brother but they intending customers were all unaware that he was a prankster.
He eventually revealed to them that it was all a prank and some insulted him before they all stormed off.

Similarly, a set of content creators pranked a young Nigerian lady by making her believe they wanted to use her for money rituals.
The lady is a student and online vendor who does ‘hookup’ as a side hustle, so the men ordered something from her worth N35k which they asked her to deliver by herself.
She was given a hotel address to come to with the clothing accessories for sale, however, on reaching there, they asked if she also does runs and she answered affirmatively.
She went into the rest room and changed into bathrobe but that was when the horrific experience began for her.
In a video circulating online, the two men could be seen dressed up like ritualists, while one held a calabash, another was holding an unidentified object.
They later informed the scared lady that they are not real ritualists but she was still very shaken by their act.
The girl started crying and begging them to spare her life but they warned her about the dangers of doing runs.
One of them wondered why she was not contented and satisfied with the online business she was doing that she decided to add selling her body. She said it is the situation of things in the country that pushed her to start doing such.
According to the content creators, they played the prank to send a strong message to young girls who see the red light business as a way of life.
After assuring her that it was all just a content for social media, they then handed her N100k as compensation for her troubles and warned her to never engage in body trade again.
