August 30, 2012 – Fraudsters Impersonate Pastor Adeboye On Facebook
Redeemed Christian Church of God General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye raised a warning message on his Facebook Page yesterday to friends and followers that fraudsters who have devised means of extorting money from unsuspecting members of his church have started creating different Facebook accounts in his name. naijagists.com
Daddy GO warned members of the public to verify the authenticity of any page claiming to be his before yielding to any instructions.
Here is what the man of God said:
“Please be very careful what you easily fall for. There are some persons going around creating false Facebook pages or names, claiming they are Pastor E. A. Adeboye.
All you have to do is a search for them on Facebook and they will add you and then pretend to be me, telling you to send some money into an account and because they know you will obey me, they are using this as a new form of fraud. Please stop them and report those pages to Facebook so they can be stopped.”
A member of his church reported a page on Facebook asking people to contribute money that he wants to embark on a trip to India.
Pastor Adeboye’s comment has gone viral over the net as several folks had replied by cursing those behind such acts. some had stated that no true christain will fall victim since the spirit will always direct them. According to some people, a true christian will always work in the spirit.
However, the post that generated a lot of argument saw different people taking on each other as a result of difference in opinion.
Be warned people.
