John Dumelo
John Dumelo is the target of series of dubious activities being carried out by fraudsters, who are using his name to dupe poor victims.

In what has been a back to back tampering of his image to collect monies from their victims, the people behind the criminal activities have moved from duplicating his passport to cloning his Facebook account. The actor/businessman has come out to distance himself from all of the demands being made by the fraudsters.

ďPlease be advised there are importers online posing to be me and asking for money through western union to support my foundation and also telling ladies they love them and will marry them. Iím not in Nigeria and I donít have a Nigerian number! This is really getting out of hand. Donít send any money,Ē he posted on his official Facebook page.

ďI donít have a Facebook page of my foundation neither do I have a Facebook page of my clothing line. Even though I have Skype I donít Skype at all. Whenever I post a picture on my page these scammers copy the picture and paste the exact thing.

ďThey usually ask for money and tell u to send it to Nigeria using someone elseís name. They will say itís my manager or personal assistants name. I donít have a manger in Nigeria and I donít have a personal assistant in Nigeria.Ē

ďThe scammers are not only in Nigeria. They operate from Ghana and other African countries. They will usually say send money for the John Dumelo charity or a relative is sick and needs money for hospital. Donít send any money.Ē

Dumelo isn't the only Ghanaian public figure whose social media account or image has been used for dubious purposes. Colleague actor Van Vicker has had his Facebook account completely taken over by hackers, and is now being used to promote pages, websites and discounted merchandised deals.

Actress Yvonne Nelson also had her Twitter account hacked weeks ago, where the hackers took over for few minutes and posted very damaging updates, which she later had to deny as not coming from her.
