A Nigerian man on TikTok, @kagantech, has provided insights into how fraudsters engage in scams where they deceive store owners by making fake payments using fake transfers.
He explained that these fraudsters exploit an app called Probank to carry out their fraudulent activities.
According to the man, Probank is an app that is not available on legitimate platforms like the Play Store, but rather on the dark web. This app enables fraudsters to input the details of the recipient’s account and simulate a fake payment alert, which appears as if a real transfer has been made. Additionally, he mentioned that the app is designed to extract the victim’s account information.
He cautioned viewers to be vigilant and aware of these fraudulent tactics. One of the ways to identify a fake payment alert is by carefully checking the description provided in the alert message. If the word “Probank” is present in the description, it is likely a fake alert. However, he also pointed out that some fraudsters have adapted by altering the description to exclude “Probank.”
In light of this, he advised that whenever individuals receive a payment alert, they should cross-reference it with their official banking app to ensure its authenticity. By being cautious and verifying payment alerts through their bank’s legitimate channels, people can better protect themselves against falling victim to such scams.
