GABF issues warning about fake ‘Guyana Basketball’ Facebook Account
The Guyana Basketball Federation has recently issued a letter warning of the existence of a fake page that has been constructed on social media to imitate the official GABF Facebook account, and being used to make erroneous comments. The Federation has disassociated itself from anything the page has published.
In a release to the media, the GABF said, “The Guyana Basketball Federation (GABF) is advising the public to be aware of a fake Facebook account purporting to be the official Facebook of the GABF. The fake account “Guy Ana-Ball” is making colourful commentary as it relates to the selection of the Guyana Basketball Men’s National Team. The public is therefore advised that the Facebook account is fraudulent, and it does not represent the views and image for the GABF, and they should NOT engage with this page.”
General Secretary of the GABF, Patrick Haynes, has also noted that an issue has been brought to his attention about reactionary comments to the selection of the National team and, more importantly, the non-selection of one particular player.
That particular player happens to be Dominic Vincente, who would be remembered as being instrumental in Guyana’s 3-0 series sweep over Grenada in December 2019 at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
When this publication searched social media, it was seen that while the page was found, the post was removed.
