Unsuspecting but randy Zambian men especially in Lusaka are being swindled by an Internet scam that promises them sex with girls in exchange for cash.
The Watchdog has discovered that men are paying not less than K700 (K700 000 old currency) each for a promise of a one-night stand with a girl of their choice after viewing their profile on the so-called Manda Hill Brown Hookups https://www.facebook.com/mandahill.hookups/photos
The photos of the girls look fake but men are being enticed .
All the arrangements are made on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/mandahill.hookups?fref=ts
But once the sex hunter pays the money (depositing in a Zanaco account), he is blocked from the Facebook and there is certainly no girl.
It is not known how many men have been swindled so far but several have complained that they have met the same fate.
Men are told to deposit the money in Zanaco Xapit Account No. 083017000087979.
Further investigations have shown that the Xapit account belongs to a Chipo Chiyaba.
One victim complained that:
‘It was on Friday 30th of August 2013 when it happened. This Person enticed me with three photographs of ladies on his/her facebook page so that I pick a lady of my choice.
‘I selected one photo of a lady she latter introduced to me as Sharon. I was told to deposit K700. I was also given a mobile number for Sharon with instructions that as soon as I deposited the money I should text Sharon on 0954 115245 so that we arrange for a meeting place.
‘After depositing the money, I texed Sharon and she suggested that we meet at Levy Pack at 16hours.
‘I waited for Sharon from 16hrs to 19 hrs. During this time I made several attempts to try to contact them, but all my efforts were in vein. Sharon’s mobile was unreachable, I tried to contact Manda Hill Brown through inbox on her Facebook page, I discovered that my access to her facebook page has been blocked, It was at this point in time when I realized that I have been swindled.’
