QNET has recently become aware of certain individuals who claim to be Independent Representatives (IRs) of QNET and have been apprehended by regulatory authorities in Nigeria.
These individuals, immigrants from Cameroon and Cote d’Ivoire and lacking valid travel documents, were arrested by The Nigerian Police Force, Ogun State Command, and subsequently handed over to the state’s Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS).
Additionally, The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Benue Command deported 18 Cameroonian irregular immigrants residing in Makurdi, Benue state, on another occasion.
We are deeply troubled by the recent developments involving allegations of fraudulent activities and illegal migration. We want to clarify that our company has no involvement in these reported incidents and firmly disassociates itself from any illegal practices. We pledge to work with the authorities to bring the perpetrators to book.
We are also investigating these matters internally and will take disciplinary action against any Independent Representative (IR) implicated in them.
QNET is a reputable global lifestyle and wellness-focused direct-selling company that operates with integrity and adheres to the highest ethical standards. We are committed to empowering individuals through entrepreneurship and providing genuine opportunities for financial growth.
The company actively works with the legal authorities in addressing brand misrepresentation in African countries by identifying these individuals and providing the necessary documents to the authorities.
QNET holds its employees and Independent Representatives to the highest ethical standards and implements strict policies and procedures to protect distributors and customers from unlawful and fraudulent behaviour.
We prioritize the well-being of our customers and stakeholders above everything else. We have established robust processes and systems to ensure transparency, compliance, and protection of our stakeholders.
Our Direct Selling Disinformation Centre (DSDC) and previous media campaigns, such as the Public Announcement Campaign and Mama Campaign in Ghana, are evidence of our commitment to this cause.
Currently, we are running the Say NO! Awareness Campaign in Nigeria, Senegal, and Burkina Faso to educate communities about the dangers of fake job offers used by fraudsters to lure people into human trafficking.
Additionally, we have an ongoing Social Awareness Campaign which seeks to equip Nigerians with valuable information and resources to protect them from potential scams.
These activities underscore QNET’s steadfast dedication to ethical business conduct, demonstrating the company’s fundamental principles of transparency, integrity, and empowering consumers.
We encourage anyone who may have been affected by these alleged incidents to come forward and report them to the appropriate authorities and also to QNET.
