The award winning musician announced and warned unsuspecting persons that an unknown person had hacked into his email account.
Just like imposters, who use a celebrity’s identity to lure and dupe fans, hackers deploy a different modus operandi. They target valid accounts of the celebrity, hack into the accounts and use them to dupe fans.
Sarkodie disclosed on microblogging site twitter on Monday that “Ma email got hacked …. Dude sending people emails asking ma contacts for money smh!!”
The ‘You Go Kill Me’ singer attached a screenshot of an email the hacker sent to UK-based Ghana radio presenter DJ Abrantee.
In the email, the hacker asks the DJ for some financial assistance although he or she did not mention the exact amount needed.
“Good afternoon and how are you doing bro ? I need your urgent help little amount of money to someone for something very important and will be happy if you can help me with this and i will surely refund it back to you one i am back,” the hacker said.
It is unclear how many people the hacker has contacted but Sarkodie’s message shows the hacker has contacted quite a sizable number of his friends.
