This morning, my Lumia 930 was stolen in broad daylight. Here is the story.
We had put up the Nokia Lumia 930 for sale. A fellow who called himself John called my staff last night to ask about the phone. Arrangements were made for a rendezvous this morning to execute the transaction. As arranged, John and my colleague met. He checked the phone and was satisfied, then suggested that they get to a nearby ATM where he would withdraw the cash for payment.
At the ATM, supposedly, he was unable to withdraw cash and again suggested that they try the next ATM spot. He got into his car and zoomed off. He drove an older model Volkswagen Passat hatchback. Midnight Blue in colour. The car had Navy tags all over it, and he was wearing a naval uniform. About my height. Slim. Bow legs. My colleague says he sounded like he was from the
Middle Belt South South.
All we have on him is his mobile number 0814 971 3977, an MTN line. If you happen to know who uses that number, kindly get in touch. TruCaller hasn’t been of help. It lists his name as “Buyer Ibadan”. Nice one.
This is the first time ever that any of the phones I have owned has been stolen, so it is a milestone of some sort. Funny, but I am not angry. I am not sad. I am as cool as ice and all calm. Thanks for helping out with any useful info.
