Did insurance agency owner, Stephen Ira Adams lie about Ghanaian scamming him?



Stephen Ira Adams, who owns an insurance agency in central Louisiana, has gone viral since a feature on his unlikely relationship with a young Ghana was broadcast on CBS Mornings.

According to him, in 2016, he got a call that unexpectedly moved him. He heard a pain that he knew all too well. “Something in that young man’s voice, I felt like I could hear him through the phone that he was a broken person,” Adams told “CBS Mornings” lead national correspondent David Begnaud.

The man on the other end was at a call center in Ghana, Africa. He asked Adams to purchase a gift card.

“I said to him, ‘What you’re doing right now is a scam. You know, you are targeting elderly Americans and it’s not right,'” Adams said. “And I said, ‘When you get off, call me.'”

The man called him back. “He did not ever ask me for any money ever again. Nope, he did not. He asked me for mosquito nets, malaria drugs, educational things,” Adams said.

That man was Prince Anderson, who is from a small village in Ghana. As the oldest son in the family, he took on the duty of caring for his sick mother and supporting his younger brother through school after his father died.

It’s now been five years since Adams and Anderson first spoke and they still keep in touch via FaceTime.

“The kind of love he showed me, the things he sends me, the money, and the care and love with my mom and everything — the love he showed me, it’s overwhelming,” Anderson said.

Adams, a 41-year-old father of two boys, said he sees himself as a father figure to 25-year-old Anderson.

“I told him to quit that call center, and he never went back because he found out what it was about,” Adams said. “Some of the people working there, I found out, don’t even know what’s going on. His next job after he quit that call center, he was washing windows at the airport.”

But it seems there is a different account to the story that has gone viral, and Stephen Ira Adams may be on to something deceitful.

After we shared the video from CBSMornings on Instagram, an account under the name “Bossc_hairman” commented on the post denying Adams’ story. The account went ahead to post the conversations that ensued between Prince and Adams via social media in 2016.

According to the screenshots, Prince reached out to Adams after seeing details of him on the website of Northwestern State University. There was no phone call to scam Adams as he suggested in the interview.
