In this present age and everything going on, people still fall victims to scammers. An internet crook has used Honourable Lawyer Adwoa Safo’s name to dupe a social media user.
It all started when the desperate internet user contacted the imposter to help her with some money to open a shop.
The imposter ordered that the person contact her secretary, giving a name and mobile number to make a payment of GHC 150 to purchase a form which she termed as Government Protocol of Trust Fund Form from her secretary to be eligible for the help.
After the person pleaded for a reduction of the amount of form, the imposter accepted GHC 50 for the form.
