How I got scammed of N3.6m – Shan George shares explicit details

  • Shan George has given explicit details on how she got scammed through her bank account.
  • It’s no news that the veteran actress lost her life savings weeks back, before she was again able to recover it, following the intervention of her bank and other parties.
  • Disclosing what happened, Shan George explained in a recent television interview.

Earlier this month, Nigerian actress Shan George cried out about how she got scammed of N3.6 million.

The veteran actress who fingered Zenith bank and Opay publicly cried out for help while stating that she had no money as her account had been emptied.

However in a turn of events, last week Shan George to the relief of her fans disclosed that she had recovered her money.

Despite her call for help and recovery of the lost funds, the movie star never actually explained how the scammers got access to her funds or how they scammed her, until now.

During a new interview with Arise TV, Shan George finally explained how the perpetrators got access to her account.

Revealing how the beginning of her woes was when she clicked on a link from a verified ‘Zenith bank’ WhatsApp account, Shan George said:

“I was looking for how to get my bank statement from the bank a few days before that thing happened. And I had applied for my bank statement to be sent to my email because I was going to submit the soft copy for where I was trying to apply for visa. So, on that fourth day which was Thursday, I had left the bank very angry because I had spent the whole day at the bank. The bank closed official closing hours, and I was still inside the bank when they were saying no ‘network, no network.’

So when I left the bank, I started thinking of how am I going to get my bank statement, because the next day Friday morning was supposed to be the last day for me to submit that particular document among all the other documents I had already put together to submit. So, I was thinking I don’t know what to do and in that mood, I went on Twitter and I thought let me go there and catch the attention of maybe one of the Zenith bank staff that would probably help. So I tweeted, “please oh Zenith Bank, what’s really going on? No network for days.”

So I tweeted that, and a lot of people started bickering and I just left the thing there. Later on when I came back, I saw that somebody had responded with a Zenith Bank page. So the person said, “but you don’t have to go to the bank for your bank statement, it’s something you can actually do on your own.”

So, it now dawned on me that this one that technology is moving very fast and some of us are old school and not catching up, I thought that was a good suggestion. So I agreed to what the person said, and the person now sent a number that I should chat with them on Whatsapp.

So I went on Whatsapp and the Whatsapp had a verified blue tick with the Zenith Bank logo. So the person now said “just fill this link and we’ll send the email to you in less than 30 minutes.” I’m usually very careful. I’ve been very careful about these internet things being that I’m not so knowlegeable about it so the fear of falling for something I don’t know, I ignore anything that makes me click link or anything. I even hardly do online shopping.

So after I now entered my details into the link the person sent me to get the email, I now said let me take a nap. After a few minutes again, I saw that I had different notifications from different platforms. So I entered the email because I was anxious for that bank statement. When I entered the email is when I now say an email from Zenith Bank telling me that somebody is trying to log into my app.

Immediately I entered my text messages and I saw that I had quite a number of them. I checked and then I saw that the text messages were a range of alerts. They removed the money in bits and with different names.
