‘Pastor Adeboye’ Solicits for fund on fake Facebook Account

A fake facebook account purportedly owned by the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, is currently being used to dupe unsuspecting members of the public.

The fraudster, who is one of several criminals posing as pastors on social media may have swindled Good Samaritans under the pretext of helping an orphanage to raise money. OrijoReporter.com Pastor Adeboye facebook account

In an online chat, the trickster, who uses Pastor Adeboye and his wife as display picture on the facebook account told our correspondent that he was told by God to tell him to donate money to a purported orphanage, Charity Orphanage Home.

He wrote: “My child idon’t(sic) know you in person but God knows you. The lord said i should tell you to sow an abundant seed of Favour and Grace to the lives of those children in Ogbeide Charity Orphanage Home in Edo State before the end of next week, because he want(sic) to manifest his promises in the life of your family and you this new year, if only you believed in him and do what he commanded, you would testify to the Glory of God after you must have done it.

“Call the M.D in charge of the Orphanage Home on +2349057783202 to reach them, also search for Ogbeide Charity Home here on facebook to confirm the rightful home. God bless you and do his will.”

Our correspondent played along, and called the phone number of the purported MD, who gave his name as Osas Edebor.

And having promised the fake Pastor Adeboye of his donation to the purported orphanage, the fraudster in a phone text message sent to our correspondent with phone number, 08083754621 wrote yesterday, “Here is our bank details; Bank; First Bank, Acc No: 3091434435, Acc name: Ogbeide Charity .E. Then our address details: No 145 Uwaila road, Esan Central Irrua Edo State. Pls(sic) message if received. God bless you. Mr. Osas Edebor.”

After waiting in vain to receive bank alert on his cell phone, the fake Pastor Adeboye called our correspondent repeatedly, and sent two text messages where he told our correspondent that his account had not been credited.

The two text messages read: “Sir we didn’t receive the alert.” “May be is network problem.”

And when our correspondent used the truecalller app to identify the true owners of the phone numbers, it gave the name of the owners as ‘fraudulent people’.
