According to the concerned Ghanaian, this particular scam happens between two to four actors.

"Whilst you're walking, the first actor will intentionally collide with you. Out of nowhere, two other guys will rush to you from a different direction and ask if the guy who just passed hit you. Once you tell them they did, they will tell you that it's juju so you have to lick every valuable you have with you else it will vanish."
