FOR INFORMATION: AN ATTEMPT TO DECEIVE A GABON BISHOP BY A SO-CALLED PRINCE OF THE SULTANATE OF SULU (pictured below) WAS BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION. PERSON ASKED US FOR HELP.
Note: BEWARE, The man in picture has been introducing himself on Facebook as prince marshal of the Tausugs and as a member of the royal Kiram family of the Sultanate of Sulu and Sabah. Nothing could be farther from the truth. He is an impostor and has been manipulating people on Facebook by conferring value-less European nobility sounding titles and honours on behalf of the Tausug people to anyone he meets on Facebook in a bid to use people to support a big con job-sting in the making.
HOW IT STARTED: SOMEONE WHO INTRODUCED HIMSELF AS A BISHOP OF THE ANGLICAN FAITH FROM AFRICA WROTE TO US AND HAPPILY INTRODUCED HIMSELF AS THE SULTANATE OF SULU "CULTURAL AMBASSADOR TO GABON" APPOINTED BY SOMEONE PURPORTING TO BE A PRINCE REPRESENTING THESULTANATE OF SULU AND THE TAUSUG PEOPLE.
We think that the Bishop was in fact trying to touch base with people on Facebook who might have knowledge of the Sultanate as he knew very little of the Sabah and the Sultanate of Sulu -- and accidentally saw our postings on Facebook. From what we understood, he was as surprised (as we were) that he was made "ambassador to Gabon" by someone on Facebook without so much as knowing who he was.
We had a few exchanges and tried to tell him that we believed he had been "conned." We made it a point not to be aggressive nor scathing about the fake personas who had recruited the said Anglican bishop in our exchanges with him and remained courteously straightforward.
Some of the exchanges we had with the Anglican bishop:
Bishop: "C'est un réel plaisire pour moi de recevoir ces informations.mais,qu'est ce que vous me conseille face à t elle crise?Au plaisire de vous relire." (It is a real pleasure to receive this information. But what do you suggest I do in the face of this crisis? Looking forward to reading you again.)
We sent him a reply saying that because he has asked us for our advice, we felt that the best course of action is not to allow himself, a servant of God, to be used in further fooling people on Facebook, for which he thanked us saying that he had had a foreboding that he was indeed being manipulated.
We have replied to him this instant and told him:
"De rien Monsignor. Nous sommes heureux d'être utile. Si nous pouvons vous être d'une aide quelconque, n'hésitez pas à nous en faire part. Bonne journée." (You're welcome Monsignor. We are happy to be of help. If we can be of further help, please don't hesitate to ask. Good day."BEWARE OF PEOPLE REPRESENTING THEMSELVES AS SULTAN, PRINCE OR ROYAL MEMBERS OF THE SULTANATE OF SULU CROWN AND OFFERING YOU "EUROPEAN ROYAL OR NOBILITY SOUNDING TITLES" OR POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY IN THEIR FAKE ORGANISATION ON FACEBOOK. THEY WILL BE FAKE AND ARE ABSOLUTELY OF NO LEGAL OR MORAL VALUE.
DON'T ALLOW YOURSELVES TO BE MANIPULATED AND USED TO CON OR FOOL PEOPLE ON FACEBOOK BY SUCH INDIVIDUALS.
