Popular actress Yvonne Nelson is battling with some individuals she has described as 'fraudsters'.
For the past month, she has been receiving incessant calls from the unknown individuals, both in Ghana and outside, who have been issuing threats on her life over claims that she owed them.
Sometime last month, one Innocent Chuku, a Nigerian based in Guinea and his two Ghanaian female acquaintances had called BEATWAVES offices to report to the paper that Yvonne owed them an amount of $18800 and had refused to pay back. Chuku said he was Yvonne's fan on Facebook and had been chatting with her. Through that, she demanded the money from him. Hence he sent the money to Yvonne via Western Union to invest in a movie she was then shooting in Malaysia last May.
According to him, Yvonne had since refused to pay back the money and had been playing hide-and-seek with him.
Also, he said he had not met Yvonne personally but they chatted on Facebook, spoke on phone and e-mailed each other.
Yvonne said she had received several other phone calls from other individuals, with some threatening to kill her over a debt she knew nothing about. She said there was one Silas who had also been demanding money and issuing death threats. She emphasised that she had not taken any money from anybody via Facebook. Also, she had neither shot a movie nor been in Malaysia before.
