Thunder strike whoever uses my pictures to dupe innocent people – Hon. Rachel Appoh cries.
Fraudsters/scammers keep upgrading their tricks, and as if them impersonating public figures to swindle innocent people on social media by making them send money for all kinds of supposed reasons like claiming a prize, donating to a charity, or giving help of some kind, is not enough.
Now they have added to their tricks, the use of pictures of public figures as DP’s, on their pages to deceive innocent people and make them believe in their fraudulent activities as a legit business. Such pages pose as Lotto Agents, World Remit Agents, etc.
Most public figures have been affected by this and Hon. Rachel Appoh hasn’t been spared. The former New Democratic Congress legislature for Gomoa Central took to her Instagram page to alert her followers on fake pages impersonating her.
The producer/host of UTV’s Ahenfie court went further to issued a disclaimer to the public:
“So I'm now called Fatty Issa? And NLA agent?? Scammers; why this particular picture?? Pls take Note of scammers wai🤣🤣🤣🤦♀🤦♀🤦♀
” SCAMMER ALERT: Pls NOTE that whoever enters into business transactions with this SCAMMER, do that at his/her own risk. My picture as the profile/ DP shouldn't deceive you plsss. It's a SCAM. Thank you🙏”
The kind-hearted former deputy minister of gender, children, and social protection, who is also a philanthropist and has a foundation that supports the widow/aged, disabled, youth in skills, etc. had a heartbreak when she came across her pictures been used to defraud innocent people on social media:
“Another one??? Scammer Alert: Eeiii...so I now work at NLA right? Why are scammers obsessed with this particular pic? Tender strike on whoever uses my picture to dupe/fraud innocent souls🔥🔥. God punish you people 🔥🔥 Any business transaction with this scammer is at your own risk. Stay away🙉”
