During a Hisense advertisement shoot at the airport, a supposed lotto agent connected him with another person, claiming to be his superior.

LilWin revealed that he was tricked into paying GH¢3,000 for lotto numbers that turned out to be unavailable, with the scammer withdrawing part of the money before he could intervene.

“I was in Accra for a Hisense advert. A man, posing as a commander, contacted my manager, claiming to seek me. On the phone, he directed me to a secluded area and spoke of ‘leaked’ lotto numbers he wanted me to bet on. He provided another contact for the lotto digits, which turned out to be him disguising his voice.

“The ‘two sure’ numbers were priced at GH¢3,000. I hurriedly withdrew the amount and handed it over. Later, he returned, claiming the ‘two sure’ numbers were gone, leaving only ‘three sure’ which would cost GH¢5,000.

“That’s when I realized I had been scammed. I rushed to the MTN office to reclaim the funds, but after banking procedures, I found out the scammer had already taken GH¢2,000…” he claimed,” he detailed during an interview with Adom FM.

This incident sheds light on a growing issue, with other actors like Akwasi Boadi (Akrobeto) and Vivian Jill also falling victim to similar scams.
