Stories are often cooked up to defraud victims who are often described as sympathizers or desperate in love.
It has been on the rampant but a scammer who got the bad luck of his life was exposed by his close friend.
The Facebook user by the name Clarence Clark has been making a good living but it’s not through legal means according to another user who blew out the fraudulent activities of the man in question.
According to Randy Sky Boateng, his day to day activities involves making friends with strangers on the popular social media platform, manipulating them with sad stories and subsequently duping them of their hard earned monies and sometimes he also uses the same medium to publicly asks for money with the same stories.
Randy Sky Boateng launched his own private investigation and got to know of Clark’s alleged fraudulent behaviours.
According to him, Clark cooks up sad stories to lure his victims into giving him money. He poses as an orphan in some instances to solicit for money. In other situations, he claims his sister is either dead or in a coma, or his landlord is evicting him due to unpaid rent.
