I can guarantee that you’ve fallen for almost every scam in our list especially when we were kids. Now, as adults, we have tricked our little siblings with the same tricks that were used on us.
Apart from those, there are still lies our own mates tell us day in day out that we believe which we later regret. Here are some of them:
1. “Go and wear your slippers and come”
If you’ve not experienced this treachery from your parents, it’s safe to say that you were adopted. This experience can be considered as a right of passage for Ghanaian kids. Immediately you go and look for your slippers, your parents disappear.
2. Mothers telling you to give them money so they save it for you
When we were kids, when family members visit you, they usually left you with money. Immediately they leave, mothers will ask you for the money so they keep it safe for you. After some time when you ask them for the money, they’ll ask you where you think they got the money to feed you from. Nothing you say will bring the money back.😹😹
3. Fante Kenkey
Fante kenkey is very deceptive! Once the wrap is around the kenkey, you’ll think the kenkey is big. When you remove the wrap, you’ll receive the shock of your life. Fante kenkey has been deceiving people since time immemorial.
4. “Send me your CV”
Usually said by family members and friends. You’ll send the CV too and you’ll not hear from them again. When you call, they won’t answer. When you text, they won’t reply. Eventually they’ll tell you that there’s no vacancy yet but they’ll keep trying to get you a place but you have to take their promises with a grain of salt because once bitten…
5. “I’m almost there”
Perpetual late comers, say hi for me in the comments section😹😹. When someone says their almost there, ask them to send their current location on WhatsApp so you’re sure because chances are, it’s a lie from the pit of hell.
What other scams didn’t we add? Let us know in the comments section.
