Recently, internet users started wondering whether Eric Mansuy, MD of electric utility ENEO has Facebook and Twitter accounts. While some users believe that he does not have social media accounts, some are convinced that the MD does have them. They even claim to be friends with the executive on Facebook and followers on Twitter.
Although users could be fooled by the numerous fake accounts impersonating the executive, he does not have social media accounts.
On January 19, 2021, the electric utility posted a denial on its Linkedin page. "Fake social media accounts impersonating the General Manager, Mr. Eric Mansuy of Eneo Cameroon have been discovered. Please, be on the Watch. Report any Facebook or Twitter account claiming to be the General manager of Eneo." the company writes.
"The posts published or messages sent by these accounts are not the personal or professional opinions and views of Mr. Eric Mansuy. Eneo cannot be held responsible for any attempt to apply for employment/partnership/collaboration/funds, etc. through these channels," it adds.
The company declares that it has taken legal actions against the authors of these false accounts, in particular for identity theft and extortion since those who believe they are dealing with the real boss are sometimes scammed by people who often ask them for money to get a job or a collaboration contract.
