Yesterday (22nd February) American singer Ginuwine, known for such hits as “In Those Jeans” and “Love You More” warned his Instagram fans about a scammer using his photo to trick people into giving money. He described it as a ‘Nigerian scam’.
“I’m being told someone is using my name to trick people into giving money THIS IS NOT ME!!!! It’s a Nigerian scam going on so if anyone on any page that has my name ask for money curse they ass out people will do anything for a dollar it’s crazy.”
On his page, offended Nigerians are angry with him, but his fans claim that the singer never meant that the scam was being masterminded by a Nigerian, only that he described same as a scam Nigerians are famous for.
