Hundreds of Kenyans have been left lamenting after ponzi scheme-like firm Amazon Web Workers (AWW) went under with their millions which they had “invested”.
On Saturday, May 15, Kenyans who had invested their money woke up to zero balance, with the owners of the scheme leaving all groups.
Their app that was downloadable from Google Play was no longer online, and the web servive had stopped working.
Kenyans had invested up to Ksh300,000, while others invested as little as Ksh3,000.
The firm lastly posted on their Facebook page on May 8, calling for applications for employment, promising to employ over 10,000.
“We are looking forward to employ over 10,000 people this year in Kenya. Recruitment on process, We are using First come First served Basis,” the firm said.
This comes less than six months since another “investment” company, Live Auction Kenya, disappeared with millions “invested” by Kenyans.
Live Auction was launched August 24, 2020, and by the time it closed it had 2,265 likes on Facebook and over ten WhatsApp groups full of “investors”.
Prior to Live Auction, thousands across the globe lost billions to another snowballing company Crowd1.
