At Oyoko-Koforidua in the Eastern Region, a man believed to be an independent representative of network marketing company Qnet committed himself by hanging himself.
The corpse, whose identity is unknown, was discovered hanging from a tree by locals.
He allegedly relocated to the neighborhood last year to work as a Qnet representative, according to neighbors.
Although the reason for his actions is unknown, it has been determined that there was major confusion at the Qnet office just days before he died.
The body of the deceased has been taken to the morgue for autopsy, identification, and preservation.
The company, on the other hand, has been accused of scamming tens of thousands of individuals across the country and holding a number of victims hostage.
Hundreds of Ghanaians and some West African countries are at risk of being deceived by agents of network marketing company Qnet Ghana, according to Starrfm.com.gh on March 15, 2021.
In Koforidua, the Eastern Regional capital, a slew of Independent Representatives (IRs) or agents are recruiting people to work as independent representatives using what appear to be misleading business modules.
A young man identified as Elvis Nelson Ayittey-Manager and Qnet agent explained that in order to register as an Independent Representative, an individual must purchase a form worth at least Ghc100, pay at least Ghc4,200 for an online purchase of a product, and pay an additional Ghc400 hostel fee.
