A Nigerian widow, Modupe Elizabeth Oladipupo, is seeking justice after a loan company she previously contacted published a fake obituary of her in an attempt to extort money from her.
According to the 22-year-old woman, she contacted the loan company and requested a loan of N13,000 after being robbed by one-chance robbers who took away her savings of N400,000.
After completing the process, she received the N13,000 but was informed that she would need to pay back N20,000. Oladipupo immediately contacted an agent of the company and informed them that she was no longer interested due to the high interest rate.
Oladipupo, who shared her predicament in an exclusive chat with LIB, said she promptly returned the money to the provided account.
However, she was shocked to receive a call from a lady named Chioma Patience, claiming to be from the loan company, and stating that she owed them N10,000.
Despite explaining her situation to the lady, her pleas fell on deaf ears as the lady insisted on the debt and threatened to tarnish her reputation if she didn’t pay.
To her surprise, Oladipupo started receiving calls from family and friends inquiring about her well-being after the lady sent them a poster with her image and a write-up falsely claiming that she was ill and in need of money.
Oladipupo revealed that the female representative of the loan company went even further by creating her obituary and forwarding it to her phone contacts.
She has since reported the incident to the police, who have contacted the lady involved.
