opay POS

I said yes, he asked me if I have gotten it. and my response was “NO” he then asked for my Next of kin name when I was applying for the POS, which I told him and he affirmed it was correct. then he went ahead and told me that my application for the opay POS has been pending ever since I applied and now it has been approved that it will be delivered to my address of residence tomorrow. He told me that I will get an opay POS and 1 big opay umbrella to start my own opay POS center if I can’t afford a shop. I said awesome. Then he went ahead and told me that I will be charged with the sum of N1000 for delivery fee, and it will be paid on delivery I said okay.

He then told me i will get a message from their office number which will give me an online Opay OTP to help complete the process. After few minutes I got a code from Opay with an OTP, then he called me immediately and told me to call out the password to him which I did.

Though I play along and asked him. “Sir like how much can I deposit” his response was you need to put as much money as you can to enable you run the business effectively. Then I asked him what is the minimum amount to be deposited? He couldn’t specify. All he was telling me that I should put enough money in my wallet and let him know when I did.

That was when he told me that no I shouldn’t go to their office that I should rather go to any POS center to make a deposit of the money into my opay wallet and let him know when I did. I just say okay sir. He keeps calling and calling asking me if I have made the deposit I kept telling him soon I will. Then I remembered to check into the opay app and get the
