He then dragged me to their bus and asked me to open my phone, I did, next thing, they labeled me a thief and tagged me all sort of things.
They put me in their bus and threatened they would take me to their station and put me in the midst of hardened criminals.
Long story short,
I felt really threatened and agreed I was going to pay them. They first asked for 200k, I told them I don’t have it, they then checked my balance and said I am going to transfer every dime there.”
“They started driving then stopped on the way and handed me over to a man.
The man then took me to a POS shop and made me do a transfer.
I regret being a citizen of this cursed country.”
