Safaricom has suspended the M-PESA PayBill number for a popular online ponzi scam ‘Public likes’ which claims to be a social media marketing company that pays its users by viewing advertisements.
The lid was blown off the alleged ponzi scheme when some users raised complaints to Safaricom. The telco then took the decision to shut down the account number while it investigates the company for allegedly duping thousands of kenyans.
According to kenyayote.com, Public Likes claims to pay 0.1$ per like or $0.04 per referral view and allow withdrawal of earnings every Friday. Payment methods include paypal, mpesa, bitcoin and Payza.
