Wahala as Nigerian Lawyer Buys Bitcoin with Money Meant for US-based Client’s House 


By Henry Iheanacho

A Nigerian lawyer appears to have landed in hot water after he used a client’s money for a project other than what it was meant for.

The lawyer identified as @leoandrevic shared the story on a hypothetical note, narrating how the client who is based in US, sent money for the purchase of a duplex in Ikoyi, Lagos state.

According to him, the money was however, used to buy Bitcoin instead of purchasing the house in Lagos.

He revealed that the client will be returning from US next week, and asked how someone in such a dicey situation can get themselves out of it.

”For the lawyers that used client’s money to invest in crypto… what can they do?

Hypothetically, say they client is abroad, and sent USD for the lawyer to buy a duplex in Ikoyi, said USD was invested in crypto and client is coming in to sign next week please?” Leo wrote.
