    Hello everyone, I have just been scammed by a guy operating a site called http://www.vccghana.com

    The guy has a lot of good write-ups on his site and that is what he is using to scam people. Once you give him your money, he will stop talking to you. All emails will no longer be answered. He just did that to me.

    Pls I need suggestions or help to deal with this guy. His site needs to be taken down so that e will no longer scam anyone. Any idea(s) will be appreciated.

    They are pretty terrible write ups. I'd say they're spun articles, but the YouTube links scattered everywhere makes me think otherwise. How did you pay?

    Realistically, you should go through PayPal and/or your bank to try and get a refund. If you can't, move on with your life and learn not to trust random websites on the internet.

    The site you linked to looks like a legitimate scam from head to toe...

    Write-ups can be faked very easily. All he had to do was open another window and write a review under a different name.
    If you paid by PayPal phone them up and speak to someone, see if there is anything they can do.

    Live and learn

    Hi Everyone who replied. Thanks for all your inputs. I will try to answer all the questions in this post.

    First I paid via a mobile money system in Ghana where I reside. So I do not have a chance of a refund or charge back from the company. The guy is also in Ghana but in another city. We spoke on phone and chatted via Whatsapp before i sent him the payment. I have started to do some work on him.

    I want to take down his domain and Facebook pages. Working on that.

    I just logged into Facebook and did a search for the term "peter efe scam" and found other recent victims. How can you come here and post this rubbish. The ppl here a far more intelligent than you and can read through your lies.

    The guy is a clown. Just log into Facebook and do a search for the term "peter efe scam" and see other recent victims. Peter Efe is one of the names the guy behind VccGhana.com is using. Not sure it is real. Must be fake.
