“Why I returned $14k mistakenly sent to me by foreign crypto trader” – Nigerian man breaks silence



A Nigerian man Anjola Femi, who received $14k (approximately N21 million) mistakenly sent to him by a foreign cryptocurrency trader, has opened up on the reason behind his decision to return the money.

The incident, which unfolded on social media, garnered widespread attention when the trader, @raffayalvi, publicly praised Femi for his honesty.

The saga began when Femi, participated in a cryptocurrency giveaway organized by Rafael Alvi, a foreign trader.

Initially awarded $100 worth of Solana, Femi received a message from Alvi acknowledging an error: instead of sending $100, Alvi accidentally transferred $14,000 to Femi’s account.


“My name is Anjola Femi, the guy that is known as Lucky, that is the Twitter handle @muchino67.

“So I won this giveaway on Solana, $100 worth of Solana from Rafael Alvi this morning. So, what happened was that he sent it to me.

“So, when he sent it to me, he now messaged me that he mistakenly sent 100 Solana which was $14k instead of $100. So, he requested me to hold 10 and send 90 to him in which I did…,” Femi narrated.

When asked why he returned the substantial sum of money, Femi said;

“I cannot keep the money because it is not mine. I am child of God and we all know that righteousness exalts a nation and thank God for Apostle Chris Onofua, the Kingdom Spread World Ministry general overseer. He has taught us the way of righteousness, so I am very very happy about what I did.

“He is happy, I am happy. I am just trying to show to the world that we Nigerians we are still great and also have a lot of people with integrity. I am also a graduate of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, 2017 set, chemical engineering to be precise.

“Thank you and God bless you all.”
