A lady identified as Ruff Benny Randa on Facebook has indicated that pictures of her are being circulated on social media by a group of scammers.
According to her, the tag given to the photos suggests that she is a prostitute who has HIV/AIDS and it encourages people to share the photos to spread awareness.
However, Ruff Benny Randa told YEN.com.gh that this is absolutely false as she is not a sex worker and is happily married with a child.
Narrating the motive behind the movement being launched against her online, Randa says she placed an order with an Instagram page called Best.Of.Gh owned by them.
"When I ordered for the items, I sent the money and asked them to deliver to my clients but they were dragging their feet, which made me block the money with the help of MTN", she explained.
She added that:
They later delivered part of the goods and I wanted to liaise with them to get my part of the money and sent them theirs but they were making attempts to keep all the money to themselves.
Before I knew it, they started posting defamatory pictures of me on Baddestsxx.
Also, Bernice Amago, a Ghanaian pupil-teacher who was knocked down by a mini truck in 2019 still suffers from the consequences two years after the incident.
Revealing the story to YEN.com.gh, Priscilla Amago, a sister to the victim, indicated that their father is a pensioner and their mother, a petty trader who has stopped trading in order to take care of Bernice as they cannot afford the services of a professional caregiver.
It is indicated that although the driver responsible was processed in court, Bernice had to rely on possible insurance claims for compensation which is still pending.
