Yet another Jamaican dancehall artiste has become the target of online scammers. This time, it’s Vershon, who has found himself in hot water with overseas selectors who paid a scammer for dubs through a false number set up through fake social media pages.

The artiste, who recently gained relative popularity for the single, Inna Real Life, produced by Cashflow Records, says persons using a fake Facebook profile have accepted money from promoters and sound systems, pretending to be members of his management team.

“This seems to have been going on for a while now, but it was someone from Costa Rica (who) brought it to my attention after he said he sent money to someone in Spanish Town for dubs and he couldn’t get the dubs. He even took a screenshot of the transaction and sent it to me,” Vershon said.

The singjay even claimed that his life is being threatened by victims of the social-media scam.

“Even a selector from New York, who had a similar experience, contacted me about it. This is causing a lot of problems for me. But I try to do the dubs just to solve the problems. On top of that I have been receiving threats from persons who said they paid money to this person or that person and not getting what they paid for,” he said.

Vershon advised that anyone who wishes to make contact with him for dubs or bookings should do so at Facebook.com/Vershonpage.

Vershon is also known for singles like Boom and Rough Up the World. His latest singles include You So Hungry for Frenz For Real and Tun it Up Ya Now for TJ Records.
