Let’s find out with some simple fact-checking.
Facts About TELPECON – Scam or Real Grant?
- The Less Privileged Empowerment Coordinators Network (TELPECON) claims to be registered with CAC but a simple public search on the CAC website shows no company or business with that name. I’m pretty sure a check for the EFCC certificate will also come up empty.
- The supposed grant doesn’t even have a website, a google search of the company or business shows results of two Facebook pages “TELPECON GRANT DISBURSEMENT” & “TELPECON GRANT & DISBURSEMENT”. A look into both Facebook pages shows that they are both used to disseminate misinformation and disinformation (fake news).
- This so-called group of NGOs that formed The Less Privileged Empowerment Coordinators Network (TELPECON) claims to have 44 million members but there is nothing that suggests that this is true.
- A Nairaland thread on TELPECON shows that some people even paid to apply for this grant since 2020 but nothing has come of it and we’re now in 2022. Some bad actors even continue to raise people’s hope that the grant will be disbursed soon but by now you should know this is a big scam.
