Liz Garvey recently at DJ Jimmy Jatt’s birthday party
Who is actually saying the truth, Dencia or Liz Garvey? In this long but interesting story, you get to hear Liz Garvey’s side of what made the two friends fight at the just concluded headies. In order to enjoy this to the max, place your laptop on your laps, relax with a chilled wine while you laugh hard as you read this and see what ladies can be up to. All that glitters aren’t gold, I totally agree. All the same, Liz Garvey’s publicist did a good job for her.
I met Reprudencia on via facebook back in 2008, she was the one who contacted me requesting to be my friend and I considered adding her because we shared common friends. She further introduced herself as a fashionista and expressed her willingness to help me get bargains from US stores -- to which I was receptive initially. However, I figured that it would be better, instead, that I travel to the US and have her take me around to the various stores for her purported bargains.
Then in september 2010, I was ready to open my Ikoyi and Surulere outlets and decided to take a trip to the UK and US to stock-up the new stores. While in the UK, during one a chat with Reprudencia, she started trying to sell me some skin whitening injections and pills, and claimed to be an agent for plastic surgeons incase I wanted to undergo a surgical procedure to help me shed my body "FAT". I told her I wasnt interested in bleaching my skin (incidentally, it's evident she is bleaching her own skin, has silicon/fake boobs, and has undergone a nose-job), but the friend I was staying with (Joy) said she was interested and I passed the phone for them to talk and they both agreed to do business.The next day Joy sent $2000 to Reprudencia and was assured that the package would be ready by the time I arrived Los Angeles.
Upon my arrival in L.A, I contacted Reprudencia to inform her I was lodged in a hotel in town and was ready to be taken to the stores she'd mentioned earlier for the bargains. Little did I know that I was setting myself up to be duped. She insisted that I come stay over at her new apartment to which I obliged. She also asked that I please loan her some money to help purchase some things for her new apartment, to which I also obliged.Immediately I moved in with her she introduced me to a website, purportedly belonging to her friend, who sold trendy sunglasses and persuaded me to purchase her friend's wares, to which I [again] obliged. After a week of staying with her I realized everything she had told me on facebook and via blackberry were all lies; she had no car,no house,absolutely nothing and no job.I rented the car she drove around,I paid for the bed i slept on, infact I paid for everything from groceries to the clothes she picked while I was shopping for my business.
Shortly afterwards, my friend Blossom who was based in Montreal, Canada came over to L.A to join me as we had earlier planned to meet in L.A. Reprudencia kept making excuses upon excuses on why Joy's package was yet to arrive and had no forthcoming response when asked about the sunshades I'd ordered from her friend. She later introduced Blossom and I to a plastic surgeon friend who tried to talk us into undergoing an $18k worth liposuction surgical procedure to which we flatly declined -- only to later find out that she was trying to lure us into paying for a free plastic surgery procedure for herself based on an agreement she has with the surgeon due to her being his 'AGENT'. She even tried talking me into getting a fake social security card in order to get an American credit card to which I also declined because I already had an internationally accepted credit card from Nigeria. She went as far as stealing my card and going on a shopping spree without my knowledge to which I reported to my bank about her fraudulent transactions. She kept lying and making excuses about Joy's package, claiming the company she ordered the injections from had delivered the package while we were out and therefore took it back. In response, I asked to see proof of the order, e.g an online receipt or a creditcard statement that shows the transaction, at that point she realized i had caught on so she sent an email from her laptop to the fictitious company, and then replied herself via her blackberry. She seemed to have forgotten that her blackberry had a signature -- at the end of the so-called reply sent by the company, there was her name and an indication that it was sent from her bb. It was all a SCAM. It then dawned on me she never ordered or paid for any skin whitening injections or pills for Joy to begin with furthermore I realised that she had gone to her friend who owned the website I ordered the Sunglasses to collect the payment I made for the Sunglasses.
By then I'd had enough and confronted her about her scams and dubious schemes, expectedly she denied any wrongdoing and flared-up. She even threatened to call the police to throw me out. It took the efforts of friends who witnessed the confrontation to calm her down. Consequently, I called a cab and left her apartment for a hotel. She left her apartment before the cab arrived. I waited at the hotel for a whole week to see if the injections she claimed to have ordered for Joy would indeed arrive, to no avail and I lost money for the Sunshades to her as well. At that point, Joy was understandably very upset and was holding me responsible for everything because I introduced her to Reprun..whatever
When she got home and realized Blossom and I had left, she started accusing me of stealing her shoe and clothes,that sounded ridiculous because:
1. She is a size uk 4 while Blossom and I are size 12's.
2. Was I going to sell used clothes in my shops?
3. The shoe she claimed I stole is a Gianmarco Lorenzi immitation/fake she bought for $130 ,I sell these shoes.
4. She had told me her sister siezed her passport cause she was 'traveling too much instead of going to school'...she must have been lying so I wouldn't know all the so called trips she claimed to have made were untrue. Only for her to send me a mail 3 months later claiming she couldnt find her passport and she was sure I must have taken it. Reprun..whatever is a full blooded cameroonian citizen on a USA student visa (though she claims to be 'half-Nigerian'), so what on earth would I want to do with a Cameroonian passport? I dont speak french and I dont want to live in Cameroon( I am PROUDLY NIGERIAN), I have a multiple USA visa so I couldnt get my head around the accusation.
Repru-whatever IS LIVING A CHAMPAGNE LIFE ON A PALMWINE INCOME and projecting a false impression that life is greener on the other side on FACEBOOK. Early this year I reported her to the police which I also have a proof for.
I have documented proof of her scams; E-mail exchanges and chats between her and I, Police report, as well as proof that she swindled an Italian friend last year.
She claims to have a warrant for my arrest; I have been going to and fro the USA for several months now (most recently 2-months ago) and have not been harrassed even once on account of any so-called warrant. She also claims to have video evidence of my theft of her things while in her apartment, I am now challenging her to produce the so-called evidence or forever hold her peace.
I own three shops in Lagos (VGC, IKOYI, and SURULERE). I have no partners, so I wonder how on earth I would even remotely consider stealing from a fake, wanna-be celebrity, attention seeking tramp like Repru-whatever .
