please be warned: “Dear EFCC,
I wish to bring to your notice one Pastor Folu Adeboye scamming a lot of innocent Nigerians on Facebook by taking advantage of the fact that many Nigerians are looking for spiritual blessings. This person is pretending to be Pastor (Mrs) Folu Adeboye, the wife of the General Overseer (GO) of The Redeemed Christian Church of God whose Facebook ID is actually Pastor Mrs Folu Adeboye. He/she uses a variant of her ID as Pastor-folu Adeboye but uses a true picture of the GO’s wife on his/her Facebook wall.
This person first came to my attention when he/she defrauded a colleague of mine by claiming God sent him/her to deliver a message to her. He/she later asked my colleague to ‘sow a seed’ which means to pay some money into an account. My colleague fell prey to it.”
