Nollywood actor, Bolanle Ninalowo, has warned his followers and fans not to transact business with anyone who poses as him on social media.
Ninalowo took to his verified Instagram page on Thursday to share photos of the data page of an International passport and ATM card purportedly created with his identity by suspected fraudsters.
He claimed some fraudsters must have been going around to dupe people with his identity on social media.
The actor distanced himself from Facebook and Twitter accounts created in his name saying he has just one social media account – his verified IG page.
“This is how far they go now to scam people. A fake passport in my name and picture (no surprise). A Real/Fake first bank ATM card (not sure because I don’t even know how possible it is to obtain one without a BVN number or did they generate one at the bank?)
“Well I am an Actor and not a crime investigator however I will implore everyone to refrain from all online dealings with anyone or anypage who claims to be Bolanle Ninalowo. This is my only VERIFIED account. I am not on FACEBOOK, TWITTER or any other social media platforms.
“I DO NOT make friends or deal with anyone online for any reasons whatsoever. You have NEVER chatted with me so stop making yourself believe what you know is totally false. You get Scammed, you are on your own.
Some hours later, he shared another post, a screenshot of a bank transfer of N30,000 purportedly sent to an Access Bank account opened with the name “Bolanle Ninalowo”.
The actor wondered how possible it is for an account to be opened in his name without his consent.
“Time to pay @myaccessbank A courtesy visit. But I don’t even own a @myaccessbank bank account.
“So asides the Generousity (sic) of this victim who sent cash to a supposed Bolanle Ninalowo with an active @myaccessbank for reasons best known to her alone.
“How possible is it for me to own an active @myaccessbank account without ever requesting one.”
