The CEO of Wask Group of Companies Dr. Williams S.K. Anarfi has warned of impersonators using his name and images on social media, especially Facebook to dupe unsuspecting women.

Popularly known as Dr. Wask, he has since reported the development to the police.

According to Dr. Wask, his attention has been drawn to numerous Facebook accounts created by the impersonator(s) who poses as a widower, befriends women on Facebook, propose to them and start a relationship although they have never met.

He said after the women have fallen madly in love, the impersonator later demands a very huge amount of money to cater for his son’s medical bills.

He said lots of women have fallen victim to these fraudulent acts where millions of cedis have been given out.

“My life is at risk because almost all my pictures on Facebook are being used by this impersonator. I was almost attacked by an angry woman last week because the impersonator promised her marriage and also took GhC20,000 from her. Now the situation is getting out of hands and so I have reported the matter to the police,” the worried CEO said.
Below are some of the modus operandi of the scammers and Dr. Wask’s disclaimer:
