In a bid to cut the time spent looking for professional service providers from days, to mere minutes, Vconnect attends to requests from all and sundry.
However, they often get people who would rather call to make their enquiries.
The customer care representative, Gina to ask about the strangest enquiries she has received here at Vconnect.
Here we go in no particular order:
1. The Lady who wanted them to change her BVN number:
“We often get calls from people who think they are talking to their bank, when this happens, I tell them they are not on with their bank, but Vconnect. That was the case with this Lady, however after I told her this wasn’t her bank, she insisted we get it done anyway”.
2.The Dude who wanted to sell his Kidney.
“Not too long ago I got a call from a man who asked if we wanted to buy one of his kidneys. I actually felt pity for him. I told him we didn’t have that information and advised him to contact hospitals who maybe had people on a waiting list to receive a kidney donation”.
3. The Pastor who thought he was speaking to a native doctor:
This one sounds like something straight from a Nollywood script, but it is true. Hear Gina tell it;
“A Pastor from Akwa Ibom called thinking he was speaking to a native doctor, he had tried everything to grow his church but nothing was working, so he was willing to do whatever it takes to increase his congregation”.
4. He wanted Illuminati Nigeria’s contact
“A while ago, a man called asking if we had the contact information for Illuminati Nigeria, he said he was willing to join immediately. Unfortunately, I couldn’t help him with that.”
5. The ones who try to scam Vconnect.
Apparently, this is a common occurrence and there is a format it. It works like this;
We get a call asking if we are the courier service who asked them to deposit money in a certain account to get goods cleared. Gina hasn’t been brave enough to say yes to this yet :D.
6. The Sugar Mummy Seekers.
“I get a lot of young men asking for contacts of sugar mummies, they are quick to tell me they are capable of *cough* satisfying the sugar mummies.
It gets even more gross; they send graphic photos to the legitimate dating sites we have to, ermm, prove their worth.” Luckily, we have a photo gallery verification system, so these pictures do not get on the Vconnect site.”
