Glo’s Prof. Johnbull alerts public to tricks of fake moneychangers
Popular TV sitcom, Professor Johnbull, sponsored by Globacom, will in this week’s episode alert its viewers to the tricks of fraudulent moneychangers in the country.
The fraudulent traders, as depicted in the episode, peddle foreign currencies but end up defrauding unsuspecting people of their hard earned money.
Titled: Money Changers, the episode exposes the antics of fake Bureau De Change (BDC) operators who are in the habit of offering higher and seemingly irresistible exchange rates far above the prevailing rates to attract the unsuspecting victims.
They are also in the habit of swapping genuine currencies of the victims with dud notes and, thereafter, offer lower exchange rate that the victims are bound to reject so that they retain the original notes while the unwary customer goes with the fake bills.
The episode offers hints on how to avoid holding the short end of the stick by would-be customers of BDC operators.Globacom, encouraged viewers to tune in to the programme to avail themselves of the useful tips on how to outsmart the fraudulent currency operators.
A major highlight of the episode is the guest appearance of Ghanaian actress, Juliet Ibrahim, who plays the role of USA-returnee sister to Etuk (Imeh Bishop).
Etuk consistently encourages his sister to marry Professor Johnbull (Kanayo O. Kanayo) for them “to born dictionary,” in reference to the scholar’s penchant for bombastic grammar.
In Money Changers, Flash Boy (Stephen Odimgbe) lives up to his reputation as a philanderer as he abandons the mission of changing Etuk’s dollars to the local currency to chase after a beautiful lady.
