Some fake profiles are posing as the Chief of Staff of the Cameroonian Navy on social media, especially on Facebook. In a March 6 post on his real Facebook account, the Chief of Staff of the Navy recalled that his only and certified account is Jean Mendoua. The profile is certified by Facebook and bears a blue verification badge, which lets people know that a page or a profile is authentic.
The Jean Mendoua account is followed by more than 1,640 people. According to the owner, the fake profiles are surely aimed at scamming the population. He, therefore, invites them to be wary so that they do not fall into the trap. “Don’t let yourself be trapped by dishonest users,” he said.
