Ghana Football Association Executive Council member, Samuel Anim Addo has reacted to the ‘fake’ Facebook account bearing his image.
The advent of social media has come with its pros and cons. Apparently one of the growing cons which is fast gaining roots is scamming – which has taken advantage of vulnerable and unsuspecting users.
Samuel Anim Addo, a football administrator and great talent spotter, has become the latest celebrity to have his image used to perpetrate the heinous crime of scamming unsuspecting social media users. Responding to the said post on Facebook, Mr. Addo wrote:
My attention has been drawn to a social media post making rounds impersonating me in a free offer to link players to clubs abroad.
The author of the post, Uefa Adedapo which is on Facebook has used my image and that of my son Mathew Anim Cudjoe to claim he or she is an agent and is demanding people to pay accomodation and visa fee in order to be linked to football clubs in Europe.
I wish to state categorically I do not associate with such fraudulent activities, neither do I have any knowledge about such agency or group of persons.
I hereby urge all to disregard such imposters.
I have reported such page to the appropriate authorities to freeze their activities. However in the meantime please beware.
Samuel Anim Addo.
Originator of BABYJET-U16 African Championship/
