Stop money scams, cult movements


YOU go to Apex Park in Boroko, Port Moresby, you see them gathering there.
You go to Jack Pidik Park, you see them gathering there.
They are almost in every vacant land around the city.
Among them are retired servicemen and women, retired public servants, businessman and women, current public servants and private sector employees and the unemployed.
They gather every day.
Each person that flocks there has invested their life’s savings, retirement money, fortnight salary, business money, subsistence farming money and other savings.
Each continue to feed the middleman who comes with frequent delay excuses to clear the path to finally harvesting the fruit of their investment.
Each investor has to contribute money to clear this hurdle. The trend continues into days, weeks months and years.
Some are even given cheques, and the middleman tells them to invest money again for the actual money to arrive at the Central Bank to clear their cheques.
Millions are written in the fake cheques that looks and feels real.
Some have lost businesses, their retirement money and houses to actually believe that they will get the money from this investment.
The so-called middleman will bring all kinds of evidence in the form of text messages, email correspondences and bank statements evidences in that the money transfer to the Central Bank will happen soon with just a few hurdles to clear. The middleman sometimes presents cheques too to keep this purposed truth alive and moving.
It is a movement.
The poor losing investor, because he or she has spent so much in the purported investment, hopes and believes that the money is coming.
This provides the air of confidence.
This is madness for the sacrificial and believing hopefuls. It is nothing but a cult movement.
Some have passed on without getting their promised thousands, millions and billions from their investments.
The investors should believe on what the Central Bank has said on this recently.
It is a scam.
It would be good to study these people on their mental health too.
