According to the man identified as Udeme Obot on Facebook said that he was defrauded by a fake NEPA man who goes by the name Hope Dennis Akpan.
In a post he made, he narrated how he requested for the services of Akpan thinking he was an official of the PHED to help him install a prepaid meter, he also added that the man after the payment disappeared and refused to pick up his calls.
He continued that after several months of trying to contact him, he coincidentally met him at a police station.
He wrote on his Facebook page; "Fake "Nepa" guy Busted!
Check out this dude, Hope Dennis Akpan, claimed to work for PHED. In January this year he collected N90,000 from me for the installation of prepaid meter.
My guy disappeared into tin air after payment. He refused taking my calls or replying my messages immediately after then.
I once promised him he would run into me someday. That day was today. Just by the entrance of Anti-Cultism Unit. SOS port Harcourt, Barry Diginee, and I caught him like a butterfly.
God is good. Hope made it so easy for us. Imagine a smart con man walking straight into a police cell kpakam!
