PoS Operator Foils Customer’s Attempt To Make N90,000 Transaction With Fake Notes

A Point-of-Sale operator on Friday thwarted an attempt by a customer, Linda Ihebinike, to make transaction with fake naira notes to the tune of N90,000 in Lagos State.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this on his X handle on Sunday.

According to Hundeyin, the PoS operator raised the alarm after Ihebinike attempted to use fake N1,000 notes to make a purchase totaling N90,000.

Hundeyin wrote, “A vigilant POS operator raised the alarm after a customer, Linda Ihebinike, attempted carrying out a transaction with fake N1,000 notes to the tune of N90,000. Investigation is ongoing.”

The PUNCH reported earlier in March that the Yaba Magistrate Court in Lagos arraigned one James Akomolafe and Olaoluwa Ogbere for allegedly stealing from multiple PoS operators under pretence.

The defendants went to Mile 12 market, Ketu under the pretence of checking their account balance at a POS stand.

They distracted the attention of the operator, swapped the machines with their own, and left for an unknown location, stealing the sum of N662,000 from the account.
