QNET, a global lifestyle and wellness company, has disassociated itself from a recent news report by the Ghana News Agency alleging that more than 200 Ghanaians are stranded in Cote D’Ivoire.

According to the publication on February 28, 2024, these individuals were victims of a company named ‘Q-net’, a popular fraudulent online scheme, which allegedly lures and defrauds people of huge sums of money, under the pretext of securing them jobs abroad.


Touching on the issue, QNET clarified that the said entity has no connection to their company, which is a legitimate business that operates in Ghana through its partner, Bosumtwi Industries Limited.

“We would like to remind the public that the entity ‘Q-net’ was legally dissolved by the efforts of the Attorney General’s Department last year and has no connection whatsoever to our business,” Biram Fall, Regional Manager for QNET in sub-Saharan Africa, added.

Mr. Fall further explained that “People who engage in QNET’s direct selling business to sell or introduce QNET products to others do not need to travel from one country to another. We are fully committed to cooperating with officers of the Ghana Immigration Service to address any issue that may involve QNET. We take allegations of illegal/irregular migration or fraudulent activities very seriously and will take strong action against anyone found to be misrepresenting QNET if indeed there is any merit to the allegation in the publication.”

The Regional Manager for QNET in sub-Saharan Africa said the company will also continue to work through the media and other communication campaigns to educate and warn people against illegal or irregular migration, job scams, fake travel opportunities, and fraudulent activities.

“QNET is not an employment agency and does not make offers of “guaranteed income” or “travel opportunities” in exchange for money. As a legitimate global direct selling company, QNET provides a safe and legitimate business model where distributors earn an income only by selling our high-quality, life-enhancing products,” he stressed.

He added that “QNET holds its employees and distributors to the highest ethical standards and implements strict policies and procedures to protect customers from unlawful, fraudulent, or unprofessional behavior. Unfortunately, some individuals, who are not associated with the company in any way, have been misusing the name of our company to act in unethical and unprofessional ways, thereby causing reputational damage to the company’s image.”

Subsequently, QNET has taken some significant steps in a bid to clear the misinformation about the company, its business model, and the direct-selling industry in general in the Sub-Saharan Africa region, including organizing regular media engagements and education on its services.
