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

nanankansah633 remarked:

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
