FACT-CHECK: Is Federal Government Giving Covid19 Second Wave survival Fund?

By Fact Check

VERDICT: False

CLAIM:

On Thursday, March 18, 2020, fact-checkers at the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) spotted a WhatsApp broadcast claiming that there is an ongoing distribution of Coronavirus (COVID-19) survival fund program for the second wave of the pandemic.

According to the broadcast, the program, an initiative of the Federal Government of Nigeria is expected to make N30,000 available to successful applicants weekly to avoid prevent a negative impact of the pandemic on the people.

The message which read: “Hurry Up And Get ₦30,000 SurvivalFund . It takes fews {sic} seconds to apply. Dont miss this great opportunity”, also had a link attached to it.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is image-20.png

FACT:

Investigations carried out by the CDD reveal that the claim that FG is currently running N30,000 COVID-19 fund for citizens to survive the second wave of the pandemic is false.

Checks by the CDD showed that the link provided is a bait used by fraudsters to defraud innocent Nigerians.

More checks by the Centre also show that a three-way registration process, terms and conditions provided and attached to the site is a sponsor card of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) survival fund.

Also, on completing the registration process, applicants are required to share the message and the link on WhatsApp before accessing the expected grant.

Further investigations on the sponsors of the program showed that the only verifiable platform to access information on survival fund/grant is  survivalfund.gov.ng. Therefore, all information provided was wrong.

Conclusions:

The claim that the Federal Government is distributing N30,000 as a survival fund for the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic is false.

The link provided and widely shared on WhatsApp is fake and was created by fraudsters to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians.

CDD is urging Nigerians to always verify the authenticity of stories before sharing them.

FACT-CHECK: Beware!! Fake Link To FG/CBN Grant In Circulation

By Fact Check

VERDICT: False

CLAIM:

On Wednesday, January 13, 2021, fact-checkers at the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) spotted a WhatsApp broadcast claiming that the Federal Government in conjunction with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) would disburse grants to 500,000 Nigerian youths.

The broadcast also claimed that the grant has been earmarked for the youth through the Nigerian Youth Investment Funds for their empowerment. Also attached to the broadcast is a link for interested applicants.

The claim reads in parts; the federal government in conjunction with CBN begins the disbursement of NIGERIA YOUTH INVESTMENT FUNDS to empower 500,000 Youths Nationwide.

The Government grant is available to everyone till the 15th of Jan 2021

APPLY HERE ===> https://bit.ly/CBN–Youth-Grant

A screenshot of the WhatsApp message in circulation

FACT:

An investigation by CDD shows that the WhatsApp message in circulation is fake and not from the CBN or the FG.

The CDD gathered that the claims tried to imitate FG’s Nigerian Youth Investment Fund (NYIF), an initiative of the Federal Ministry of Youths and Sports Development, that was designed to financially empower Nigerian youths through the provision of at least 500,000 jobs between 2020 and 2023.

The authentic link for the FG approved initiative can be accessed on the website of the FMYSD and the CBN.

Further checks by CDD fact-checkers show that this is one of the methods used by internet fraudsters to have access to peoples’ personal information including bank details.

The application process, which is also in stages would request for the applicant’s details, including name, purpose, and type of the grant he/she is applying for. At the end of the application process, the applicant is then requested to share the opportunity with the link to 15 people on WhatsApp for completion.

Screenshot of details from the fake link

Speaking to CDD fact-checker, Areola Oluwakemi, the Special Assistant to the Minister of Youth and Sports Development on ICT and Coperate Relations confirmed the link is fake.

Oluwakemi said approved initstaive link is “100 per cent different” from what that is being shared on WhatsApp. She also urged Nigerian youths to always visit the website of the FMYSD (https://youthandsport.gov.ng/) to access the FG grant.

“They should always go to our website and follow the directives on the approved link from there avoid being scammed by these fraudsters,” Oluwakemi said.

CONCLUSION:

The link circulating on WhatsApp on FG/CBN Nigerian Youth Investment Fund is false. The link has been created by online scammers to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians.

However, an authentic website link is provided on the official website of the Ministry of Youth and Sport Development and the CBN website.

CDD urges the general public to always verify every information before dissemination.

FACT-CHECK: Beware Of Viral Fake N-Power Grant Website Link

By Fact Check

VERDICT: False

CLAIM:

On Tuesday, December 29, 2020, fact-checkers at Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) spotted a broadcast claiming the distribution of N30,000 N-Power grant to Nigerians.

The broadcast with an accompanied link claimed beneficiaries of the will be determined from those selected.

FACT:

Investigations carried out by CDD fact-checkers showed the claim to be false and purely another method used by online scammers to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians.

Checks carried out by CDD revealed the link provided looks is fake and not from the Federal Government’s approved N-Power Programme

The link provided by the suspected scammers would also require that applicants provide details such as account number among others.

The applicants are also expected to share the link to 12 other people on WhatsApp– a pattern which CDD has noticed is used by internet fraudsters to lure mostly unemployment Nigerians to their “scheme”.

According to details on the application form, applicants can only access their approved funds after the link have been sent to the 12 people.

Also, although effort to get an official statement from N-Power management, CDD’s check on the platforms used by the initiative showed no link for a grant application have been shared by the government.

CONCLUSION:

The claim on N-power free N30,000 grant to beneficiaries is false and another fraudulent method by online scammers to defraud people. The CDD has produced several fact-checks  which various online scams that fraudsters have adopted to lure people into providing their personal information.

CDD is urging Nigerians to always verify the authenticity of stories before sharing them.

FACT CHECK: Raymond 'Hushpuppi' Abbas Not Released from US!

By Fact Check, UncategorizedNo Comments

VERDICT: False

CLAIM:

On Wednesday, July 22, 2020, the Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) spotted a screenshot showing that Ramon Olorunwa Abbas popularly known as Hushpuppi was released from the United States Federal Bureau of prisons.

The screenshots which went viral on WhatsApp and social media platform suggested that Hushpuppi who is facing charges for alleged online fraudulent activities had regained his freedom. 

The report further published by news blogs including GH Gossip, Instablog and many others.

FACT:

An investigation by fact-checkers at the CDD showed that contrary to the widespread claim online, Hushpuppi has not been released.

The suspected internet fraudster was only transferred from the US FBI prisons to another unnamed facility.

The image shared was screenshot from the website of the FBI facility showed that Abbas, an inmate with BOP Register Number 54313424 was released on July 20, 2020.

Speaking on the controversy surrounding the release, Hushpuppi’s lawyer, Gal Pissetzky, said he (Abbas) was only moved from the FBI prison to another facility in California to commene his trial.

Premium Times reports that Pissetzky said: “These reports are not true. He has not been released. The Bureau of prisons website shows that he was released simply because he is being transferred now to California.”

The California-based lawyer also told journalists on Wednesday, July 22, that he is still serving as Abbas’ representative.

He said: “He has not been ‘released’ and I am still his lawyer, he is on his way to California. Not everything you see on court documents is accurate. 

“Just because the jail record says released does not mean he has been released he is being transferred to California,” Pissetzky added.

Earlier in July, the Dubai police alleged that the 37-year-old Abbas and his gang allegedly defrauded 1,926,400 people from different parts of the world.

Charges against him shows that he stole about 1.6 billion dirhams (N168 billion) from his victim.

He was initially taken to Chicago court and was denied bail before the case was transferred to California. 

The matter is being handled by the federal bureau of investigation (FBI), which took over the case from the Dubai police.

CONCLUSION:

The claim that Hushpuppi has regained his freedom is false. The suspected internet fraudster was only transferred from FBI prison to another facility in California.

CDD urges the general public to desist from sharing false news without verifying them.
