An Actor and undergraduate has been arrested by the Oyo state police command for defrauding traders with fake bank alerts.

Olajide, who claims to be a Yoruba film actor, was among those paraded at the state police command headquarters, Eleyele, Ibadan, on Monday.

The actor, who was paraded alongside his partner, Wemimo Adeyanju, a Higher National Diploma student of Purchasing and Supply at a polytechnic in the South-West, said  in an interview that he was arrested in the Apete area of Ibadan.

Asked to explain how he used to generate the fake bank alerts, Olajide said he would ask for the account numbers and names of the sellers after buying goods from them.

After this, he would use the information to generate their details by dialling the USSD code of his bank.

After generating the recipient’s name, he said he would alter the old bank alert sent to him by his bank and change the date and the amount, and resend same to the recipient.

According to him, the fake alert sent will show on the recipient’s phone as a genuine alert from his bank.

He said, “I did it just three times before I was arrested. After seeing the alert, they would allow me to go away with the goods paid for with the fake bank alert.

“I went to another shop and a woman recognised me through the display photograph on my WhatsApp and raised the alarm.”

He admitted that Olajide used the fake bank alert to purchase some items on an occasion that he accompanied him.

“He did it once. He was the one who did it, but I followed him that day,” Adeyanju stated.

Police sources said Olajide had an app on his phone through which he was generating fake bank alerts to defraud traders.

  4. The process is simple and quick to a PPP Forgiveness Loan. I applied for my PPP Loan through Womply as got approved in just a couple of days. The process with Womply’s Fast Lane application was seamless, quick and easy. Watch my video below of Womply’s Fast Lane application process and how to apply for the PPP loan before the money runs out. Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loans carry an interest rate of 1 percent with a maturity of 5 years. No collateral or personal guarantees are required, and the loan is forgivable if the money is used for eligible expenses. http://narolkach.spar.wroclaw.pl/profile/alfredolemon726/ Discover more about Navy Federal Credit Union Ppp Loan here. Radius Bank is accepting PPP loan applications, and you can get started here.   › nfcu ppp application login Newtek Small Business Finance, Inc., a business development company, is accepting PPP loan applications. No – if you returned the PPP funding prior to December 27, 2020 you will select ‘No’ when asked if you received a prior PPP loan. Under PPP, the loans are predominantly aimed at covering payroll costs (up to $100,000 per employee) but can be used to address other expenses as well, including utilities, rent, and interest on mortgage payments. Loans, of which 75 percent are used to cover payroll costs are 100 percent forgivable at the end of the eight-week period during which they are used, but if more than 25 percent of the money is used for other expenses, that portion of the funds will not be forgiven.

  6. “Let’s make sure we get two out of three to have the peace of mind to go into next year, which will be a special year with the World Cup in November.” It will be hard for France manager Didier Deschamps to name a starting XI from such a talented group of players for Euro 2020. However, stability is important and a constant first XI is essential for countries aiming to win the tournament. It was as stunning a collapse as the European Championships has ever seen, but how did France unravel so quickly and so completely when it mattered most? The majority of countries have announced their squad for Euro 2020. France have named an exceptionally strong squad, consisting of some of the best players in world football. Footage emerged on social media apparently showing Veronique Rabiot gesticulating towards the families of other France players after Les Bleus’ shock exit from Euro 2020 at the hands of Switzerland. https://johnnydujx986421.blog-ezine.com/7237551/live-livescore-yesterday You can sign up to receive an e-mail when new countries and features launch.

With the Lisbon-based outfit being “The Eagles,” Allison clearly was motivated by the club’s immense success, which he hoped to emulate in his new position at Crystal Palace. Despite a change in nicknames throughout the club’s existence, both are represented on the team’s current badge, which sports an eagle perched on top of the glass palace. Alan White, Don Rogers, Ian Wright In 2020/21, Crystal Palace finished 14th in the Premier League after a steady season under the ex-England manager, Roy Hodgson. Under Hodgson, Palace had a great away record but will need to improve their home record if they want to finish higher up the Premier League table. Palace were not big spenders in the summer but Arsenal legend Patrick Viera has arrived to replace Hodgson as manager. Palace will, once more, rely on star names such as Wilfried Zaha for goals this season.
