Freetown, Sierra Leone, February 21, 2024 – QNET, a global lifestyle and wellness company is aware of media publications especially by the Sierra Leonean Global Times titled: ‘Two QNET Staff Docked for Le 100m Fraud” and published on 21st February 2024. We strongly refute the assertion that the individuals mentioned in the story are ‘QNET Staff’. We wish to emphatically make it known we are in no way connected to the two individuals in question. QNET does not have any of its member of staff stationed in Sierra Leone.

People who engage in the QNET business to sell or introduce QNET products to others are not in the gainful employment of the company. They are independent representatives and personally liable for any act of misconduct they commit.

Biram Fall, Regional Manager for QNET sub-Saharan Africa, says, “We are fully committed to cooperating with the local police to address any allegation of fraud by any individual purportedly working in the name of QNET. We take allegations of illegal or fraudulent activity very seriously and will take strong action against anyone found to be misrepresenting QNET.”

Mr. Fall reiterated that: “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, legitimate business model where distributors earn an income only by selling our high-quality, life-enhancing products. If you are approached by someone claiming to be from QNET and promising employment or travel opportunities in exchange for payment or administrative charges, please contact the relevant authorities or QNET’s Network Integrity team immediately.”

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 behaviour. Unfortunately, some individuals behave in unethical and unprofessional ways, thereby causing reputational damage to the company’s image. In some cases, people who are not associated with the company in any way, attempt to scam others using the company’s name.

QNET has actively combated misinformation surrounding its operations and the direct-selling sector in Sub-Saharan Africa, taking notable measures to address misconceptions. A key initiative is the establishment of a WhatsApp Compliance Hotline (+233256630005) since September 1, 2023, enabling individuals to report any unethical use of the QNET name directly. This hotline serves customers across Sub-Saharan African markets, including Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Cameroon, Mali, Guinea, Benin, Togo, among others, providing support in both English and French languages.
