unday, May 16, 2021 -Three suspicious Apps have vanished with millions of money from Kenyans who had invested for higher returns.
Notably, Amazon Web Worker App and Cash 24 App this week took away with millions of Kenyans’ hard earned money after operating for only 2-3 months. Those who had invested money into the Apps in form of packages would receive some payments after participating in what was referred to as ‘order grabbing’ but before they got back their investments, the Apps suddenly became inactive.
Investment in the said Apps ranged from sh 600 up to sh 1 million and those who had tested some proceeds within their first week would upgrade not knowing that was the main secrete of the con App owners to lure a member to invest back more.
For instance, Cash24 has been spreading around the country very fast and many Kenyans enrolled for the returns. It was a sure income every day for anybody who invested between sh 600 and sh 1 million. This encouraged a chain of referrals that saw the App owners bank millions every day.
Interestingly, Homenews.co.ke had a chance to look at the APP and, unfortunately, it was difficult to identify who owns it and which office they operated from. The contacts on the App were international and which couldn’t go through. Everything was suspicious.
All payments (deposits and withdrawals) were done through MPESA but for the victims who tried to reach out to Safaricom for assistance, they couldn’t get much from the service provider who termed the APP as just their client like any other.
Cash 24 App shut down this week and for those who fell victim some say they had invested money to the tune of sh 650,000.
“I started earning something last week, but I hadn’t recovered my money back. I expected to get my full investment back this week but the App is nolonger functional. The Web cannot be found. I had invested sh 80,000,” a victim divulged.
The same fate fell those who had invested in Amazon Web Worker that had also promised huge returns for investments.
When it went down afew days ago, thousands of Kenyans who had opened accounts and even referred so many friends including family and friends to join, lost huge sums of money as they couldn’t get access to their respective accounts.
Now, helpless Kenyans want government to start cracking down on such risky online pyramid schemes that have mushroomed with an aim of fleecing Kenyans their hard-earned cash.
