This Senagal Boy Falls Off Scammer's Fake Invitational Football Clinic In Ph

A Senegal national fell into the trap of scammers who invited him to teach football in a clinic in the Philippines.
Moussa Kissima Samate arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 1 last October 12 after he was invited to teach football in a clinic in Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila and McKinley Hill in Taguig.
However, no one fetched him. Then, he was forced to beg for food in the airport until the officials noticed him and took care of him.
The investigation found out that he was a victim of a scammer who promised him with the opportunity in exchange for payment for the hotel accommodations and other things. Wanted for his dreams to come true, his family sold their farm animals to come up with the funds.
The email came from the embassy of Saudi Arabia, inviting him to the event.
The officials of the embassy are not available for comment.
Dan Palami, the manager of the Philippine Azkals, that is a partner to the clinic, said the team is not importing foreign players. He said the age of the victim is also a question because the FIFA is quite strict in implementing the rule in recruiting minor players.
“Nagdududa nga po ako dahil minor ito. Under the rules of FIFA they are strict in recruiting minors for clubs. Hindi po nagre-recruit ang Azkals ng hindi Pilipino so isang red flag agad yun,” Palami said.
Isang football player mula sa Senegal ang dumating sa Pilipinas dahil sa imbitasyon umanong magturo sa isang football clinic. Pero lumalabas na naloko siya. Saksi si Athena Imperial.
