Wilfred Ndidi has warned aspiring footballers against being duped by persons using his name on Facebook, as he clearly stated that he is not on the social media platform.
The Leicester City midfielder made this clear in a post on Instagram against the backdrop of complaints by some young Nigerian footballers who claim to have been swindled by someone impersonating him.
“Hey guys, I’m not on acebook. If you chatting with anyone using my name on Facebook it’s not me so you don’t get scammed… Thank you,have a blessed new year ??,” stated the Nigeria international, whose post drew the following reaction by a victim of the act.
Drsmikhi: “Exactly…. It happens to me… I was duped after paying 95 thousand to Agent Churchill Oliseh… He promised to send me to Torino FC on trial and after then. His line is no longer going. The same thing to Jude Ighalo account on Facebook.. It refer me to Mr Elvis.. And I pay 65,000 to him to go to CSKA Moscow just because of to play football… The worst thing about this is when you ask this players on their real page on Instagram and Twitter.. They hardly reply… I been scam twice just to play…. My only prayer now is to be scouted… Happy new year and for those us want to play football in the future,, please let just keep working hard towards it.. Gods time is the best.. Don’t pay money to someone you don’t know.. I have been duped twice now… Thanks @ndidi25 @ighalojude @naijafootballers @mikel_john_obi @official_jj10 .God bless us all.”
