Sad Story Of A Girl Who Got Scammed When She Tried To Upgrade Her Jamb Result [FULL STORY]

My name is Cynthia Joseph, am 17 years old and i would like to share my jamb story with you guys, so other people will not be deceived as i was deceived.
I wrote jamb last year while i was still in ss3 and i got 204, i was just testing my ability so i did not take the jamb seriously. When my dad saw the result he said, “wow.. am sure my baby would make 250 next year.”

This year’s jamb exam was to hold in April but due to the fact that i was at home after my waec i have started reading and preparing for jamb since December 2016. My course is economics and i was sitting for maths, English, commerce and economics. I read my commerce and economics text book 6 times before the jamb examination. And i attended jamb lessons to support myself in english and maths.
A day to the exam i was very confident that i would murder all the questions that will come out in jamb and yes i did but to my greatest disappointment i got 182. I checked my result in 3 cyber-cafes because it was so hard for me to believe it was my result, i cried and cried but the crying did not change anything. My parents were not disappointed, they were just surprised that i got that score but they said it’s God’s doing that i should wait for next year.. That was the saddest sentence i have ever heard in my life.

When my neighbor check his own, he scored 215, he was so shocked he thought jamb made a mistake but what made him believe it was his result was because he used CHOKES. The night before the exam we were all seated in our compound. He told me that he will not sleep tonight, i asked why and he said he is waiting for chokes. i laughed and said ‘do you know that Jamb is the only examination that the answers don’t get leaked?’ I was wrong.. Out of curiosity i stayed with him so i could see the answers he was expecting, by 11pm he got English, by 2am commerce and economics entered.. He said maths was going to leak by 8am in the morning.

He had a very bad handwriting so I helped him to copy all the prepared answers from his cell phone to a small piece of paper. When i finished i advised him not to use it that it might be wrong and how will he know that the paper types will correspond? he replied by saying ‘na today?’ He told me to copy my own down so we can use it together but i declined. If only i could see the future, i would have accepted his offer and used the prepared answers.
Two weeks after the examination i came across a website www.upgradejamb….com (full site name withheld). When i saw the website i was shocked and i showed it to my elder brother who is a graduate, he discouraged me to forget about the site, that it is against the law, he went further saying if i get caught i will spend some years in jail, but i laughed it off. I read all what was written on the website and it was so perfect that i believed every word that was written there. So i called the phone number and a guy picked it up. i told him that i saw his number on a “jambsite” and that i will like to upgrade my jamb score from 182 to 205, he said that’s not a problem and he would help me do it in 5 hours after payment. He requested for my jamb details which i sent and he told me that when i pay the money i should call him..
I was kinda happy and i decided not to tell my parents, i will use the upgraded result as a surprise to them, i brought out all my savings it was 3,500 naira i could put together so i lied to my elder bother that i want to learn how to type and the typist requested for 1,500 naira. He gave it to me immediately and said after i learn it i will be more useful to him and i will have something doing.

The next day i headed to the bank and i payed the sum of 5,000 naira into his account.
Account Name: WITHHELD
Account Number: WITHHELD

I called him and he said he got an alert that after 5hours i should go and re-print my result. Unfortunately, when i went to the cyber cafe i was told my jamb card has been used many times that i need to get a new jamb card, i was sad because i don’t know where to get the money. Actually, the man selling jamb stuffs is my church member so i went to get the card on credit with the belief that when my parent see the result they will be very happy and they would pay for the card. But to my greatest surprise, i checked my result and nothing changed. I waited for the next day, checked again and i still saw my same score.. I called him and he did not picked, i sent him messages he replied saying it’s a database complication that i should wait for an hour and check back, i waited for two hours and checked but i still saw the same jamb score. I called him but his phone was not reachable. Till now, his phone is not reachable. It was that moment i realized i have been scammed. I took the courage and i told my parents what happened. I showed them the website and they said it’s not my fault, that even if they were the ones, they would have fallen for it. So they paid for the jamb card and enrolled me into a computer school and i apologized to my elder brother for lying to him.
It’s not like i want a refund or something. I just want people to know that this upgrading stuff is not real and i wish someone can caught the owner of that site and lock him up cause i believe i am not his only victim and i will not be his last.
Thanks for reading. You all can ask me any questions you like but no insults please.
