…accused of creating fake Facebook profile
A 27-year-old woman says that she is concerned about her safety after being cyber-bullied on social media and accused of being responsible for the creation of a fake-Facebook profile which uploads personal information about people.
Karen Manifold, who resides at Diamond, East Bank Demerara, told INews earlier today that she was forced to contact the police, recruit an attorney and take action as she was being cyber bullied, defamed and libeled by another woman identified as Jessica Smith on Facebook.
“I woke up last week to calls and texts from various people about the Smith’s posts on Facebook and Instagram. I was shocked. I have never created a fake page in my life and I do not know why this woman would want to come after me”, a concerned and seemingly terrified Manifold reported.
She said that people have been following her vehicle and she has been receiving death threats since Smith took to social media to accuse her of operating the ‘Talk Di Tings G.T. Regulas’ page.
In a letter seen by Inews, Manifold’s Attorney writes to Smith notifying her of his client’s intention to take legal action against her for libel and defamation.
“This did not stop the young lady. She is continuing. But I came here today because a lot of people go through what I am going through and I believe that cyber bullying innocent people is wrong. I will defend myself and take action using the right process. I have reported the matter to the police and I am moving to the courts”, Manifold said.
Efforts to contact Smith proved futile.
