Gospel star Tope Alabi’s good name has been stained by a fraudster who used a fake Instagram account to collect huge amount of money from her fans.
In a chat with Saturday Beat, the ace singer said the embarrassment incident has caused her a lot of pain.
“The pain that these fraudsters have caused me by using my name to extort money from people is too much.
“People have been paying money into an account they provided, thinking that I am the one they are relating with. This is so disheartening because even if I need money, I run to God.
“I am not suspecting anybody at the moment. I got to know about this when people called me to say that they had paid money into a particular account following a request from me.
“Since I discovered this, the person has shut down the account. It is really so painful.”
