Godwin crooner, Korede Bello’s, account is cloned by a scammer who dupes Mai Doya (Funky Mallam) to the tune of N100, 000, just as Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko), who is in the process of being duped by a fake Olamide, and Flash (Stephen Odimgbe) pay the sum of N50, 000 to a fake Personal Assistant to a cloned TV goddess, Nadia Buhari.
The series’ restaurateur, Olaniyi (Yomi Fash Lanso), is however, lucky as a scammer who posts a beautiful female picture on the internet as a prospective lover loses his deposit when he sent a male account number for a supposed female beneficiary.
