Dancehall artiste Vershon Threatened After Scamming Incident


Up-and-coming dancehall artiste Vershon has become the target of scammers.


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," an upset 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.

Social media bookings

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

Popular dancehall producer Notnice recently warned promoters and sound system operators to avoid doing business transactions over social media, after he and his label were brought under scrutiny by persons who had been scammed on Facebook.

On the brighter side, one man was recently hauled before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court for collecting money by false pretense. It is said that the man pretended to be the fiancee of dancehall artiste Gully Bop and falsely collected money from promoters in Canada for shows.

However, Gully Bop is just one of several artistes who have faced a similar issue with scamming. Other victims include Potential Kidd, Demarco, Khago, Cashflow Neil, QQ and Busy Signal.

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.
