You must have come across several comments on Facebook about Nigeria Customs auctioning seized vehicles, please beware don’t fall victim of this new online scam.
According to sources, Yahoo fraudsters have ventured into NCS car auction as their latest way of duping unsuspecting victims.

Your life time opportunity is here again. The NCS is currently giving out impounded vehicles at a cheaper rate, at affordable auction prices. First hand Tokunbo cars, which have never been used in Nigeria.
“These cars were seized as a result of illegal importation into the country. They are readily available in give-away prices. If you are interested in buying a first-hand cars(sic) at a very cheaper rate, contact officer Bayomi Sanusi on 07061874***.’’

Our Nigerian police will never go after pple like this to get them arrested,they will rather go after pple going about their businesses to disturb them unnecessarily. See the case of that boy shot in Ikorodu just because he struggled with them when they were seizing what gives him his daily bread, he was shot and he died. These pple are not protecting us, they are even partnering with criminals to inflict pains on the masses. God will help us!

A new government’s mistake, a new opportunity for fraudsters. Nigerian thieves from those in government and those outside are brainy. Arrest both custom officials and the yahoo boys.

It is very easy for the lay enforcement to grab the suspected fraudsters. If someone pays cash into a bank account, and is duped, the police can trace him through the bank account where the money was deposited. The Nigerian Customs Service has the power to get these people to justice because they are dragging the NCS image to the mud. I want Nigerian police, SSS, NCS etc, to investigate this account details – A/C NAME OBAJAJA VICTOR, A/C NUMBER 0137336006, BANK – GT BANK. one Musa who claimed to be a custom officer is using this account to collect money from innocent Nigerians in the name of vehicle auction by the NCS. I have two witnesses for this if he doubts it, also the deposit slips for the transactions,
