A Ghanaian man identified as Felix Owusu Okyere has been called out on social media after posting photos of a mentally challenged woman he claimed is his mother.
He took to a popular Facebook group and uploaded pictures of himself with the woman on a day he claimed was her birthday, and succeeded in ripping people off.
Social media users who sympathised with them sent money and gifts to Felix, believing that they were helping to celebrate his mum.
However, not long after, details began to emerge of how he’s actually a scammer whose modus operandi thrives on such posts.
A Facebook user, Odehe Bi accused Felix of being a criminal whose family is still negotiating to pay him for some laptops he stole from him.
He wrote; ”After negotiations are being made for your family to pay for the laptops and cash you stole from my company, you haven’t ended it there. Today you’re posting in a Facebook group that your mum is mad. When did your mother become mad?
You’re doing everything possible to bring her back to normal, and she’s still in that same old dirty clothes? You that you’re the mad man of your family and they’re trying possible ways to cure you.
You’re using a mad woman now for your atrocities? Seeking donations for a mad woman isn’t the problem, but saying she’s your mum when she’s actually not even your family member, is the problem.
It’s sad and pathetic that she won’t even get those donated monies at the end. You’ll use it for yourself. Who uses a mad person of another family to make posts and seeks donations and all that? Since you’re using a mad person to your own benefit, you’ll get mad at the end. Whatever made her mad, will come to you surely someday soon.
Madness isn’t something to make lies about and claim sympathy for. You’re indirectly telling nature that you want to take this woman’s burden of madness. Nature will surely grant you. Keep on!!”
