Mekit Invest announced in a statement it will refund its subscribers starting today October 22 until December 19. This followed a decision by the governor of the Central region to suspend the company’s activities considered “dubious.”
“Investors will be individually informed by SMS or the press about the days and dates on which they must go to Mekit Invest for refund. Moreover, the investors concerned by this procedure are those who registered during the period from August 3 to October 14, 2020," the company said, stressing that people that subscribed before this period have already obtained returns on their investments and are therefore not affected by the said operation.
One of Mekit’s activities consisted of trading crypto-currencies. The company offered subscribers to invest sums of money at rates of up to 15% per week over 90 weeks. Some sources speak of about 10,000 subscribers from the cities of Yaoundé and Douala for the total mobilization of several billion CFA francs.
Let's note that this organization founded by Jean Calvin Mebenga is not authorized by the market regulator Cosumaf, which has even cited Mekit in a list of 14 suspicious financial products.
