Mr Ifeanyi Mamah, a lawyer petitions the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and he Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU).

According to his petition, an an online ponzi scheme known as MyBONUS swindled its victims over two billion naira conniving with a microfinance bank, `Kuda Microfinance Bank Ltd’ with headquarters in Lagos.

According to news gathered by NAN,

“We are begging the EFCC, NFIU and AGF for urgent intervention in recovering the money for the victims and forestalling future occurrences,’’ Mamah said.

He alleged that leaders of the syndicate operated myBONUS2U technology, popularly known as myBONUS, “whose website is mybonus2u.com’’.

He said that the platform was a fraudulent cashback one which, by their representations, ensured members received cashback while shopping online from over 700 commerce stores globally.

“The unsuspecting victims were promised to receive capital back on demand, in addition to other privileges,” he said.

He said that it was discovered that the syndicate whose names and accounts were used for the scheme with the Kuda Microfinance Bank Ltd (RC796975) turned out to be a fraud.

He said that since January 2021 the investment platform, website and software application, discovered to have been intentionally floated to allegedly defraud unsuspecting victims by the group, had been disabled.

“The operators of the scheme completely disconnected from the victims and totally lost communications.

“Consequently, victims’ capitals, amongst others running into billions of Naira, paid into the individuals accounts with Kuda Microfinance Bank Ltd and provided by myBONUS, cannot be accessed any longer.

“The website’s server DNS can no longer be found and MyBONUS application downloaded from Google play store is no more functional since January 2021,’’ Mamah said.

He, therefore, called on the relevant authorities to use the relevant laws in bringing the alleged fraudsters to book and weed the country’s cyberspace of crimes.
