Under the pretense of “doing good” to make people aware of the COVID pandemic (those who do not have access to facebook, internet, TV, or radio), a new money making scheme emerged.

You register for free. Then you get a referal link which earns you “Credit” of R10 over three levels.

We registered using a referal link and received a confirmation email to validate the account.

Then it went offline for maintenance. We will report back when the site is back up.

The site came back online, so here is the process:

You log in and a “Stay at Home” splash screen redirects you to a declaration.

Once you accept the declaration, you get to the “dashboard”

This screen also shows your referral link and account balance.


Read the status message on the page.
