I Have Been Approached To Create A Ponzi Scheme Website by MasterJayJay: 12:11pm On Feb 17
It seems the newest online stuff in Nigeria is ponzi websites. Everyday a new ponzi scheme website is lanched in Nigeria with the aim of scamming gullible Nigerians.


Recently, a secondary schoolmate of mine told me about some guys that want me to create such website for them. They are ready to pay me heavily. Though I am very broke, I rejected the offer and bluntly to him I can't take the offer.

I haven't made it as webdesigner. I did not even get any webdesign job throughout last year till this moment. Some people that want me to design a website for their school, business will collect my contact and I will never hear from them again. I am not a pro(can't code from scratch),but with paid softwares that are available online I am up to the task.


Just this morning, I signed in to my facebook account and saw another person making an inquiry on ponzi scheme. I uploaded the screenshot of my chat with him.

Though hunger is beating me here seriously, I refused to be tempted to help criminals scam Nigerians.

Same persons who approached you for a web job would still come back online to call you a scam if anything goes wrong.
That's the hallmark on Nairaland
Good thing your friend approached you hence he would think twice before trying to paint you black.

In the mean time, sorry about not making anything the whole of last year. Those of us who did sacrificed a whole lot.

As to if you should take the job, it's totally your own call.

I concur.
OP, you don't know who would commit suicide as a result of taking part in such a scheme. Tough decision to take I know but you can go to bed at night with peace of mind.

I know some people will come here to disagree and abuse OP, same people who will shout government is corrupt, you selves are no different. Brood of criminals.

You will die of hunger. Ponzi schemes have come to stay in Nigeria no matter what anyone says. Just like we accepted football betting overtime we will come to accept ponzi schemes and nothing you can do to stop it. The guy just have to approach another web designer. And please tell me the name of the sites so in case it lauched i will be among the firsts to participate. It is my money, And i decides how i use my money.

You may be feeling like a hero now, But soon you will look back and regret. You may even be championing the cause of ponzi schemes in the future who knows.

Op if you create the website is to your advantage as more money in your account.. But if you decide not to accept the offer is also to your own detriment, no money in your account. Looking at it from another angle, if you reject the offer somebody will accept it with both hands and that would not stop the proliferation of ponzi scheme websites. So the ball is in your court. Chose wisely!

That's your own headache.

As long as lawyers dey defend criminals, doctors dey do abortion. I don't see anything bad in doing your job.

Maybe the pay isn't enough or you even secretly created the website for them, who knows?

Contact me for ur site grin. I want to do my job.

Go and sit down, my friend. What stupid post! Everyone lying just to create posts. If your profession is to build sites for people and you say you refused a job offer because of what? And you are broke...? My friend, you are not only financially broke, you are mentally bereft.
