Beware of Facebook business deals: Malawi man tricked

A Malawi farmer in the eastern region district of Machinga by a hair’s breadth could have lost fifty 50kg bags of rice to a bogus business deal he had found on social networking site Facebook.

Sani Bwanali, 27, told police that a buyer masquerading as Maletso Banda, who he had first interacted on ‘Lets Do Business Malawi,”  assured him of buying all his bags of rice.

According to Bwanali, Banda had asked him to ferry the rice to Ntcheu.

Ntcheu police deputy publicist Hastings Chigalu said upon realizing that Banda was making so many excuses even after taking with him the rice, Bwanali tipped the police.

The police followed up with Banda, who run away living the rice behind.

People should be very careful these days with crooks prying as business.They r so convincing that some put in suits and even books some places to meet in hotels.They even advertise in papers that they are buying seed products at very competitive price using some temporal number.I was one of them who got duped but fortunately we tracked their numbers thru airtel.So be careful with these business dealings.You may end up losing all your things to these heartless crooks for what you have worked hard for.
