Mobile phone reportedly turned to soap in Lagos. (see photos)

Some stories I can't tell - because even me sef, it's hard for me to believe...lol...so I will just share it the way it was sent to me. Read below...
This happened at about 4:20 pm. An Hausa man (Yao as he is called) was accosted by a man who claimed to be stranded and needs money for transport to Badagry. Yao offered to give him 200 but this man had another deal (to sell his phone), 'a big Nokia phone' as described by Yao for #5000, they later agreed #2000 which Yao paid for. He was handed the phone which he tested. To cut the story short, the phone was 'packaged' by the man and they parted ways. Yao got home to share the 'good news'. He dipped his hands in his pocket to bring out the phone and that was what he found. Soap! He said what pained him most was that this man happened to also be an Hausa man cause they conversed in his language.

 But how can though?

That is an expensive soap, it must wash away his sins! The perpetrator probably switched the phone and soap as he 'packaged' it.

It is very much possible. It is called the more you look the less you see among the juju men. The man actually saw saop but he thought he saw Nokia phone.. one of those things charm can do.

Unknown said...

He already have a soap in d envelop...all. He need to do was distract d buyer yl packaging d phone.... He was carried away by d excitment oF getting a big phone Dat cheap nd also d Fact dat dey both spoke Housa made his distraction even!

There is nothing like magic, the seller replace the phone with soap at the point of collection.

Lmao please this isn't rocket science. The seller switched it at the point of collection. Silly post. See as the soap is even branded. He should have googled the manufacturers of the soap to get a number to call to find out if all their soaps were once mobile phones haha

At least he still got a soap to wash with? If e no get anything blot? Half bread is better than nothing.

Akuko.....how do I belive this

Anonymous said...

This is just a scam , its happens here in the UK occassionally in some areas. I ll explain what happens.

When you are stopped by the "stranger" you are shown a real working phone with Box and all, but the phone in question is still in the hands of the stranger, once they start talking price, they give you a higher price which makes you walk away and while you are walking away they quickly switch the content of the box and then they call you to come and take it at whatever price you are willing to pay. You on the other hand will be so excited and anxious to pay the ridiculously cheap price happily pay up thinking it was still the same box you saw moments ago. Once you pay up and you walk away quickly so that the stranger does not change their mind, you have been had!.


If it is too good to be true it usually is.

This happened to a friend who's Camera turned into a stone.

Yao inspected the phone which was okay and gave it back to the man to package, man packaged soap and gave it to Yao in place of soap, simple.

Damilola said...

Yea it happened between my friend and some Lithuanian guys in east London. Laptop turned to onions. £250 gone

Anonymous said...

He didn't turn to soap. The person that sold it to him changed it when he was looking. This guys are very fast. Have been a victim in Ghana ones

Denky Awesome said...

This is a simple gimmick! Those days at Idumota bridge, people buy watch and they will package pieces of stone for them. You buy good jeans and they will package old/worn out material.

second chance said...

It's truly d sign of end time. hausas do not cheat eachother. what a shame.

Unknown said...

I don't knw that this things still happen I hv been a victim once those days in oshodi d guy showed me a Fone n package anoda for me instead .

I know itz a yoruba dat wrote dis....An hausa man? una no dey learn, stop twisting English wit dis ur mother tongue wahala self acclaimed most educated. Words dat start with H dat is ommitted while pronouncing eg hour, Honour goes wit An. While d words pronounced with d H at d beginning eg House., higher, hanger, humble...goes wit A. I know Itz difficult cos y'll hate H but sorry Itz still part of d english alphabet, try n use it. Yorubas cappish? U welcome

The seller was a magician and a crook! Magic is just tricks therefore the phone was switched at selling point but na mumu. Anything that is too cheap can hardly be a real deal.

LOL...... I CANT STOP LAFFING....

Idyllic Prince said...

This is Lagos, some people had bought cheap phones at Idumota bridge which also turned out to stones. It happens

Unknown said...

OLDEST TRICK IN THE BOOK

IT'S CALLED A BAIT AND SWITCH.

A COMBINATION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL MANIPULATION AND SLEIGHT OF HAND.

PEOPLE NEED TO INFORM THEMSELVES MORE OR FALL PREY TO THIS AND MORE.

Mine was after paying 5k in 500 naira notes. He asked me to add smthg but I told him that is my last card. He refused selling and returned my money. When I wanted buying smthg else. I brought out d money lo and behold, they have all turned to 5 5 naira. 10pieces. I felt like crying for falling prey to such a cheap prank. Every thg is possible in Lagos/9ja.
