Glo’s Professor Johnbull alerts public to tricks of fake money changers


Popular TV sitcom,  Professor Johnbull, sponsored by telecommunications firm, Globacom, in this week’s episode  alerts its teeming watchers to the trickery of fraudulent  money changers in the country.

The fraudulent traders, according to the  episode,  peddle  foreign currency but end up  defrauding unsuspecting people of their hard earned money.

 Entitled Money Changers, the episode exposes the antics of  fake Bureau De Change operators who are in the habit of offering higher and seemingly irresistible exchange ratesfar above the prevailing rates in order to attract  the unsuspecting victims.

 They are also in the habit of  swapping genuine currencies of the victims with dud notes and, thereafter, offer  lower exchange rate that the victims are bound to reject so that the original  notes are retained by the money changers while the unwary customer  goes with the fake currency bills.

The episode offers hints on how to avoid holding the short end of the  stick by would-be customers of bureau de change operators.

Executive Producer of the sitcom, Globacom,  encouraged  viewers to tune in to the programme to avail themselves of the useful tips  on how to outsmart the fraudulent  currency operators.

 A major highlight of the episode  is the guest appearance of  Ghanaian actress, Juliet Ibrahim, who  plays the role of  USA-returnee  sister of Etuk (Imeh Bishop). Etuk consistently encourages his sister to marry Professor Johnbull (Kanayo O. Kanayo) in order for the two “to born dictionary”, a  reference to the scholar’s penchant for bombastic grammar.

In Money ChangersFlash Boy (Stephen Odimgbe)  lives up to his reputation  as a philanderer as he  abandons the mission of changing Etuk’s dollars to the local currency to chase after a beautiful lady.

The episode  also parades regulars of the sitcom including  Olaniyi (Yomi Fash-Lanso), Mai Doya (Funky Mallam), Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko) and Abadnego (Martins Nebo) and will be broadcast on Tuesday at 8.30.p.m on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes.

Repeat broadcast will be on Friday  at 8.30 p.m. on the same channels.
