Phone hawkers are having field day fleecing the unsuspecting public of their hard earned cash in the city of Abuja. They initially started with wrist watches and soon as that wasn’t paying off anymore they graduated to phones. These hawkers are noticeable along Kubwa expressway and they usually carry out this trade in traffic. For example, the latest blackberry phone goes for as low as N25,000, not knowing it’s an imitation. Unfortunately, once customers buy one these phones, and put it into use, it starts malfunctioning almost immediately. Most of these phones can’t browse not to talk of ping, but their victims only discover that after coughing out some money.
