Netizens react to the video of the British woman's story

Several netizens felt sorry for the woman and took to the post's comments section to share their thoughts. YEN.com.gh compiles some reactions below.

Rock line said:

As a Ghanaian, this breaks my heart. We ask them to come here, and we end up frustrating them. This is just insane.

A Benjamite Sis remarked:

The names of these non-contractors need to be shared, so others don’t have to deal with them. An app needs to be created to make it easier for us to communicate about business practices in Ghana with a rating system. This would hold businesses accountable if they are not trending as trustworthy and reliable.

G P opined:

I beg you, my brothers and sisters, to use a "good" real estate lawyer to avoid situations like this. A good lawyer will always keep you from parting so easily with your hard-earned money. Yes, you pay for a lawyer, but it can save you thousands and give you peace of mind. This is such a lovely woman, and it breaks my heart to see what they are doing to her.
