Mrs Martha Nzwile from Namibia, accompanied by her husband, Christopher Nwile, her nephew, Morgan and friend came to The SCOAN with a horrific story of fraud. The problem that brought them to The SCOAN was various kinds of sickness. She was involved in a serious accident in her country which resulted in a spinal cord injury. She was forced to use a neck collar and lumbar corset for over four years and lived literally in constant pain and distress. After watching Emmanuel TV, she desperately attempted to contact The SCOAN, but didn’t receive an instant reply. While lying in pain in hospital, she was told of a testimony of someone healed of colon cancer miraculously through praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua via Facebook. Although she had never used Facebook before, she decided to log on and search for TB Joshua Ministries on Facebook. However, she naively opened a fraudulent account of someone who claimed be T.B. Joshua. Unknown to her, the person she began talking to was actually a fraudster, deceptively using the name of T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV to defraud people who were desperate to come to The SCOAN.
After establishing contact with the fraudster, she was told that she would be invited to The SCOAN, picked up at the airport and all accommodation would be prearranged. She was told to bring almost $800 as an advance fee. She was initially skeptical and requested to see proof that the person she was corresponding with indeed represented The SCOAN. The fraudster claimed to be the account officer of The SCOAN, terming himself, ‘Joshua Emmanuel’ and going further to provide a phone number with which she could contact him. The fraudster in question sent her a fake invitation letter, using a crafted letterhead with The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV logos. Deceived by the amount of details provided, she actually paid the money into the account provided, totaling over $3,000. Innocently believing that she and her family would be met by The SCOAN at the airport, they went ahead to travel to Lagos. Upon arriving and meeting the official SCOAN protocol, they were shocked to learn that the person they had been dealing with was a fraudster and the letter of invitation completely fake.
Remember, better is not good enough; the best is yet to come.
