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 (EBD), told Guyana Times on Sunday that she was forced to contact the police, recruit an attorney and take action as she was being cyber bullied, defamed and libelled by another woman identified as Jessica Smith on Facebook.Karen Manifold“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 this newspaper, 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.
West Ham co-owner David Sullivan insists the club are far from finished in the transfer market and hopes Sam Allardyce will have the resources to play a more attacking formation next season.The east London club have already been busy strengthening the squad and have brought in Argentine forward Mauro Zarate, Senegal international Cheikhou Kouyate, highly rated full-back Aaron Cresswell and teenage midfielder Diego Poyet.The club faced a relegation battle for the majority of last season and Sullivan is desperate to ensure the same thing does not happen again next term.When asked if the club were finished in the transfer market, Sullivan said: “100 per cent. No.”Allardyce came under fire for his negative tactics last season and the team were booed off the pitch in March even though they beat Hull at Upton Park.With West Ham signing more attacking players like Zarate and Poyet, Sullivan hopes there will be more options for Allardyce to switch things around and he could even play a 4-4-2 formation.Sullivan, speaking on WHUFCTV.com, added: “I hope so, at least we have a plan B now, if we are losing the game.” 1 West Ham co-owner David Sullivan
