This was again taken from Ethical Suppliers and we feel that the public should be informed on his scam. Thanks Mr Henry Sammy for the story and Bravo to Ethical Suppliers to pointing out frauds. Which is of course very much hated in the industry.
It is advised not to deal with Nigerians especially the likes of Mike Ajibola.

I have an issue of theft through false pretenses to make against Mr. Ajibola who I know is dealing with HSBC and other banks and using it to con unsuspecting clients and associates.
I know that from HSBC in Singapore to Toronto, London and South Africa, you are all trying to do business with a Mr. Micheal Olesugun Ajibola, the person I have come to understand to be a very dishonest individual in handling money which he solicites from associates under pretext that he will get them financial instruments.
I was introduced to Mr. Ajibola by Ronald Gregory of TRAC Trade Finance based in Toronto in August, 2015. At the time I was looking for an instrument to buy Sugar from SEATTLE INVESTMENT LIMITED. Mr. Ajibola presented himself as a man of integrity and action, and who had the ability to make “miracles” of getting financial instruments happen from HSBC in Singapore (this is the reason I am copying this message to the officer at HSBC Singapore). He later asked us to pay USD3000.00 to a Mr. Wang who, according to him, banked with HSBC. He informed us that he would liaise with the said Wang to get the financial instrument from HSBC, Singapore. This never happened and once payment was made, Mr. Wang disappeared from the scene. Mr. Ajibola sent us USD900 at the time to which we added USD2100 to make the USD3000.00 requested. However, we have come to learn and now believe strongly that the USD900 was a bait for him to defraud us of USD2100.00. Unbelievable.
Late last year, 2015, on various suspicions about the activities of Mr. Ajibola, who by then had asked for a further USD50,000.00 from us for the said instrument, we withdrew from this arrangement and asked him to refund the USD2100 paid to Wang at Mr. Ajibola’s directive (we didn’t know Mr. Wang and have never met him, our trust and action was based on the trust we had for Ronald Gregory who introduced Ajibola to us). However, since then, Mr. Ajibola has been dodging and avoid my calls on Skype, phone and whatsapp. In essence avoiding to make the refund. He has in fact since then resorted to all kinds of excuses, the latest, according to Ronald Gregory being that because one of my associates (recipient of this email) posted her suspicions of Ajibola’s integrity and dubious business activities on the internet, he is upset and doesn’t want to pay back the money! Surely, this kind of positions and behavior are only taken by crooks and fraudsters not genuine business people. Mr. Ajibola’s intentions are now becoming very clear each and every day that he is and indeed has always been a fraud and a smooth criminal whose intentions are to steal from unsuspecting clients and associates in the commodity business space. He needs to be stopped and contained, shamed and made to refund all he has taken from us and others.
I have decided to extend the information to the bank so that they know about it. For the HSBC bank official, I need you to see this as a complain against Mr. Ajibola for his fraudulent financial behaviour and activities. And to Mr. Ajibola, please note that if we shall not have received our funds by Friday this week (which is tomorrow), we will write to all those other banks and others that you have misled and continue to mislead about the financial instrument fake story. So, take this as a warning shot.
