Person who stole Charles Oputa Jnr's phone and iPad defrauds his customers

Sent to me by Charly Boy's publicist. See it below...
It was not a good experience for Charles Oputa Jr., Son of the enigmatic Charlyboy whose phone and iPad were stolen on December 24th at Gana street in Maitama Abuja.
After the horrible experience with several fruitless efforts made while trying to get across to the thief, Charles resolved to settling for a new mobile phone as well as an ipad. However, one disturbing thing when he took the said decision was the vital information and contacts he lost alongside the ipad and the phone.
His ipad and BB touch were permanently not in use until January when the thief/impersonator purportedly switched them on, retaining the same name, the same contact and started business dealings with Charles’ customers.



Charles got wind of the development when friends and family began to call him to tell him strange things about himself, things he barely knew anything about. He was shocked. Charles’ customers were stunned when he openly denounced the impersonator. Charles had been ignorantly tagged a womanizer as his impersonator continued to toast all the girls on his stolen BB contact. The impersonator left Charles’s picture on his old BB profile, pretending to be Charles, also retaining his ipad details. 

The impersonator’s constant chat with Charles’ friends who are now on his new BB contact reveal his (impersonator’s ) several attempts to dupe them, as he now claims the ownership of Charles’s Retail Therapy Fashion lounge located in the Old Bannex Plaza, Wuse2, Abuja.

Charles owns one of the most patronized fashion stores in Abuja. The store is said to be very popular amongst Abuja young women who patronize him in his office or online, but since he lost his Blackberry and his ipad on Christmas eve, his customers are beginning to find it difficult differentiating between the real Charles and the fake one.  

Recently, the impersonator sent his bank account information to Charles' customers for payment, and the customer who was only playing along with the impersonator quickly sent the munched screen of her chat with the criminal, detailing his account information
After having gotten hold of his bank details, Charles quickly rushed to FACEBOOK to see if he could get any profile information close to the name, Ezeugo Declan. Fortunately, for him, he got every detail of the impersonator/ thief. 

Charles Jr. has appealed to his customers to stop having any business dealings with the impersonator, giving out his new BB PIN. His new BB pin is now 2705D269 while the old is 2705D269. In a bulk short message sent out, Charles had instructed his costumers to stop transacting business through his old BB pin and his ipad until investigation is completed on the matter.

At the moment, the case has been reported to the Gwarinpa Police station for onward investigation.  The DPO in charge of the station has promised to track down the criminal.

Police is nothing in the country how come police can't handle this boy case so strong they all see all evidence to catch this notorious theive ?

GOSSIP GIRL said...

Its even too easy †̥ catch dis thief, just go to the bank with policemen Α̲̅πϑ get them to give U̶̲̥̅̊ the address of the culprit, or with his name you go to a service provider Α̲̅πϑ they'll give u his details.. Finish

Queen Bee said...

Its simple: the network provider and access bank could have helped them track the thief!
Now they v made it public,without catching the culprit already?...I hope he doesn't hear of this and disappear to cause more harm leta since he has a lot of info on oputa in his hands!

Bitchstolemylook! said...

I thought Ipad and BB were password encrypted and after a number of failed attempts to unlock the device wipes out data and restores to factory default. Is he saying he does not password any of his devices?
Please for all IT gurus correct me if i am wrong. Because if Ipad and BB's security have been breached(lol) then people should not waste their money anymore... Samsung and kindle can do the same.

Secondly, I think this story is a charade to advertise his order and pay on delivery or in advance business because like most people who use BB, they usually have those contacts on other social medias. Why did he not use any computer( as soon as it happened or later) to log in to his FB and Twitter accounts to let everyone know his BB and Ipad were stolen knowing the kind of business he is doing? Or is he saying he can't log in on more than one device?

Lastly, The BB Pins are the same... goes to buttress the point i am making that it is all a HOAX!!!!!!!!



Oputa Jnr...Please i beg you, stop this nonsense!

Well people's properties get stolen from time to time but when the tief won't move on with his loot and still tries to rob someones family and friends and tarnish ones image then that's news. *Now that an Igbo person is stealing we won't hear them comment, if its anoda tribe they will fill everywhere with their jargon. Awon akuriii. Linda if you like dont post my comment

That's why bb protect is good. Please install it. Once your fone gets missing, sign in on a pc and wipe your fone. You can alsomseenthe ocation of your fone online. It makes it difficult for the person to usebdat stolen fone.

Anonymous said...

Blackberry protect is not on the phone for decoration, you can wipe off all the data on your bb by login onto the blackberry protect website. Common sense is not common! Upon all the money Charly Boy used to send Charles Jnr to school, he still behaves like an illiterate *smh*

So he will be so stupid and give the bank his correct address?

If its a savings account, he can open it with a fake address. Utility bills and address verifications are not required.

It's in fact very complicated in this busy life to listen news on Television, thus I just use web for that purpose, and take the hottest news.
