Nigerians, beware of Facebook posts promoting ‘MoneyEasily’ platform

IN SHORT: Several posts on Facebook claim that a platform known as MoneyEasily can help you make over N80,000 a day. But it’s been flagged as highly untrustworthy and likely to scam you.

“Earn NGN86,800.00 easily in two hours a day … Guys don’t be left behind,” reads a Facebook post encouraging users to join a platform called MoneyEasily.

The post includes screenshots, supposedly of the user’s account, showing the amount of money they’ve apparently made through the platform. It also features a link for interested users to register.

The same platform has been promoted by other users here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here

Beware of potential scams

MoneyEasily claims to “offer members cash rewards for everyday activities they do online”. These activities include inviting friends to join and apparently getting paid when they do. There is also a welcome bonus of US$25, the platform says.

Africa Check used the website verification tool ScamAdviser to check the legitimacy of MoneyEasily’s website. The platform received a trust score of one out of 100 on ScamAdviser. This is extremely low and the website is most likely a scam. 

Many users on Trustpilot, a website that hosts reviews to build trust between consumers and businesses, said that MoneyEasily had failed to pay them.

MyAIFactChecker, an app that helps users verify the authenticity of claims, also flagged it as “a fraudulent website involved in job scams that have defrauded victims globally”. 

Africa Check did not find any company called “MoneyEasily” or anything similar in a search of Nigeria’s business register
