A young Ghanaian woman based in the United States has admitted that one thing that she doesn't like about some Ghanaians is how they try to take advantage of you once they know you are a foreigner.
Speaking in an interview with SVTV Africa on YouTube, Agnes Ampofo, currently a resident of Baltimore Maryland in the US said that kind of mindset by some Ghanaians is something that really upsets her.
She revealed a personal experience of how a market seller tried to cheat her by inflating the price of an item simply because she sounded like a foreigner.
“In 2021, my family and I went to a market in Accra to buy something. I heard the one selling the things mention to a previous customer that a small bottle of water cost 1 cedi or 2 cedis but when it got my turn, the price shot up to 10 cedis. I asked the seller whether I was coming to buy the blood of Jesus” she said.
