A TikTok channel with the handle @diasporadiary shared a video of how an African-American woman talked about her Ghanaian landlady duping her of hard-earned money while she was looking for a place to rent in Ghana.
She explained that the landlady hiked the rent price of the apartment when she noticed that the woman had a foreign accent. When the foreigner demanded an explanation about why the property was expensive, the landlady said it was because December was a peak season for property seekers, even though they were in October.

Netizens react to the African-American woman's video
Several netizens felt sorry for the woman and shared their thoughts in the comments. YEN.com.gh compiles some reactions below.
This is what I have been saying. If you are going to Ghana or Africa, please do your research first before going; otherwise, they will rip you off
Get a friend or some local intermediary who'll speak on your behalf because once they find out you are not local, it's billing season on you
We suggest you get a trusted Ghanaian to coordinate your accommodation. Why should it always be Accra? Tema is only twenty minutes away from Accra.
This is why African-Americans need to make African friends before moving there to have an idea of what to expect
