QNet human trafficking recruitment ring busted in Liberia
Evidently QNet International’s pyramid scheme isn’t doing to well, prompting the company to use human trafficking as a recruitment tool.
No, that’s not a play on words. Authorities in Liberia have made arrests, smashing QNet International’s human trafficking ring.
Earlier this month Front Page Africa reported Qnet was at the center of a “major human trafficking ring”.
FPA investigation discovered that the company, Qnet International, has been bringing children and other young adults to Liberia from neighboring countries – mainly Sierra Leone, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Senegal, and Mali.
FPA was unable to independently verify if the Qnet in Liberia is associated with Chinese company, QNet Ltd., which is based in Hong Kong.
The Chinese firm is a multi-level marketing company owned by the QI Group.
QNet was founded by Vijay Eswaran, who runs the company from Malaysia.
Once trafficked into Liberia under false pretenses, victims were locked up in “compounds” and put to work marketing QNet.
Recounted one victim to Front Page Africa;
The day I reached in Duala [Monrovia], the company’s agent picked me up, brought me to the company’s office in Paynesville and took all the money from me.
After they took the money from me, they told me to go and bring two other persons, telling me, ‘that’s the business we are doing’.”
Liberia’s National Police have been investigating the case, and on June 23rd made two arrests.
Those arrests led to raids on QNet offices and human trafficking compounds in Liberia last Wednesday.
Suspect Abu Kamara was kept in detention while Sheriff Gavi was released to his lawyer.
It is alleged by the victims that Abu Kamara was the one who collected their monies and some phones. While it is also established that Sheriff Gavi is head of Qnet International in Liberia.
Under interrogation Kamara claimed someone going by Monde Konneh did the actual trafficking.
He (Konneh) told me the children were coming to work, to do business. Network marketing business with Qnet International.
Kamara claims Konneh is currently hiding out in neighboring Guinea.
The investigation continues. Any updates on the case will be provided below.
Mein Gott…even by scumbag MLM-Ponzi/Pyramid/Scam standards, this is a new, horrific low.
I am a victim. I just want to know if the business is real.
If you truly are a QNet victim then you know it’s a very real pyramid scheme.
I was full on scholoshipe by musu Kamara, a member of qnet, she told me it was scholoshipe program.
I am a victem I wont to know if this business is real.
Generally speaking people aren’t victims of legitimate businesses.
QNet is a very real pyramid scheme. Sorry for your loss.
I was full by my sister, she told me it was a scholoshipe, after I got through paying the money, then they call me in the office and told me it was a business call Qnet then I ask what do you call Qnet they said it’s a internet business.
I told them I have not do such business then I told them it was not business you people tell me about, I requested for my money back they said they will not gave my money back.
I wonted to call police but I teank of my sister, if I do so my family will look at me as different person so I forget.
up till now I have not recive my money back so I wont to know if this business is good or not because I am a victem I know nothing of this business.
Generally speaking people aren’t victims of “good” companies.
QNet is a pyramid scheme. It and your sister scammed you. Sorry for your loss.
