Nairametrics has raised concern over moves by some individuals to defraud customers through its online platform.
Nairametrics, in a statement, advised customers to avoid dealing with such impostors.
According to the statement, signed by the General Manager, Nairametrics Financial Advocates, Mr. Chris Pemu, “It has come to the attention of Nairametrics Financial Advocates, owners of Nairametrics.com that impostors and fraudulent individuals and organisations are impersonating themselves as Nairametrics and/or its Founder, Ugo Ugodre Obi-Chukwu, to extort money from innocent Nigerians online and on social media.
“We therefore denounce this fraudulent and unscrupulous impersonation and hereby alert the general public to this urgent situation. For the avoidance of doubt, Ugodre Obi-Chukwu, Nairametrics and its employees do not accept money from anyone for investment and financial advisory services.
“This is also clearly stated in our disclaimer notices. It is also important to note that any organisation that engages in financial advisory services or seeks money from the public for investments, must be registered with the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) and any other relevant regulatory body.”
