My sister got a call from the @gtbank customer care registered line 08039003900. The lady on the line quoted her kids account & said they wanted to link them to her own account so she should go to her internet banking to create a password via a link sent to her email. #ScamAlert
She was largely distracted on the call but said 'ok I'll check my mail'. On opening the mail, this was what she saw. The mail looked legit, it supposedly came from intops@gtbank.com, it quoted the Gtbank website and the customer care numbers. But it was a scam email. #ScamAlert
How are they able to do this? Technology. The ability to mask the true destination of the site via hyperlink. Same goes for the call. What saved my sister was just having that extra bit of skepticism. She decided to call the same customer care line they called her on and spoke...

Here’s what’s disingenuous. When you have a religion where extremist rhetoric is the norm, and followers won’t disavow it, then either those people are hostages or the rhetoric is not extreme. /1

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed
