Some of the stranded West African nationals at Abuakwa police station

Direct selling firm, QNET, says it is investigating 13 of its local independent representatives (IRS), for their alleged involvement in the deal.

Officials of the company say the suspects have been blocked from their system and notices issued to victims, pending the outcome of police investigations.

The suspected fraudulent act has left some West African nationals who were lured into Ghana supposedly to work in mining companies stranded.

It has also denied that some four persons arrested in Kumasi over the alleged employment scam, are linked to the company.

Police at Abuakwa arrested the four persons last week after 29 West African nationals accused them of using mining jobs to bait them into networking marketing.

The complainants made up of nationals of The Gambia, Sierra Leone, among others, claimed they paid 700 dollars each to the alleged scammers.

Efforts to retrieve the monies paid to the supposed agents of QNet, have been unsuccessful, leaving the to live on benevolence of people for survival.

The Abuakwa District Commander of the Ghana Police Service, Chief Superintendent Yaw Asubonteng, on Friday ordered the arrest of three people in connection with the issue.

Police have since received QNET registration details used by the suspects but the company insists, none of them is a worker or agent.
