The office of the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has warned Nigerians of the fake Senate loan scam on the internet.
The fake offer, titled “N200,000 Palliative Loan By the Senate,” features a misleading image of Senator Akpabio alongside the coat of arms and the logo of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
The fake Senate loan scheme was posted on Facebook under the account name Templeshort, falsely claiming to provide instant loan approval.
The office of the Senate President has warned the general public not to fall a victim to the scammer, stressing that the senate has no business with the fraudster.
The official spokesperson for the President of the Senate, Hon Eseme Eyiboh, emphasized that the Senate has no affiliation with Templeshort and is not associated with any Facebook handle operating under that name.
He added that the President of the Senate is not involved in any loan program or palliative arrangement.
“Senator Godswill Akpabio is not collaborating with the CBN or any other financial institution on any loan facility as a form of palliative,” Hon Eyiboh stressed.
