How sim registration vendor captured my details twice with intention of selling second sim to k!dnapper – Man narrates

A man has recounted how he narrowly escaped incrimination after a sim registration vendor captured his details twice.

The Twitter user who shared the story stated that he had purchased sim from a roadside vendor who duplicated his information.

The man who had become suspicious about the whole thing questioned why his information was captured twice.

The sim vendor had tried to convince him that it was nothing until his network provide notified him that his details had been registered on two sims.

Read his full story below:

“I wanted to get a new SIM to complement the one I already have. Then I decided to patronise a road side sim vendor and the unexpected happened.

During registration, I gave out the needed details to the vendor and the registration was going on smoothly until it got to capturing.
Usually, you are expected to be captured once but the vendor captured me twice and that made me suspicious. So I queried him but he gave a flimsy excuse.

Immediately after the registration, I got a welcome text message indicating I registered two numbers instead of one and
I asked why two numbers registered in my name instead of one, the vendor said “it’s normal, that sometimes the issue is from the network operators”

The next day, I went to Glo office to lay a complain and the moment I mentioned what brought me, the manager there said
“these guys again? Why doing these to innocent people”?, that was when I realized the gravity of what just happened. The second number was deregistered, the case was reported and the guy was picked up.
Questioning the vendor, he said they usually use people’s details to register other sim cards which they resell to “car trackers” at a higher price.

On further interrogation, he confessed that he uses people’s details to register sim cards which they sell to fraudsters,
ritualists, kidnappers and he makes a lot of money from the business

Now imagine if he sold this second number to a kidnapper or a fraudster and when tracked, my picture and details would pop up and it would be difficult to deny.
I’m putting this out here because a lot of innocent people are in prisons today because of cr!me they know nothing about.

While doing your registration, please be attentive and report any suspicion to the right authority.”
