A month ago, Techspaceke reported on a new app dubbed Amazon Web Worker Africa (AWW Africa) which was the talk of the town as unemployed youth dished out referrals to the app in a bid to make a quick buck online.
Terming it as a scam Ponzi scheme ” The quick and fast answer is Amazon Web Worker is a Scam. It has all the characteristics of a Ponzi Scheme just like Live Auction, Public Likes, and the rest.” The coverage read.
Today, the app is no longer listed on the Google play store and just as predicted, netizens who didn’t take our word for it are wailing in losses.
The app claimed that the platform was an Amazon Affiliate which it was not. All Amazon Affiliates are clearly listed on their Website and are created by Amazon Mobile LLC.
I hear there is a Ponzi scheme called "Amazon web worker" that has vanished with Kenyans billions. Some guys had invested as much as Ksh. 300,000. Kenyans will never learn.

Amazon web Worker app has been deleted/removed from the Google play store. I think the scam process is now complete.
At least I warned you all, a little bit late but I did. Little but honest work.

Just two days ago, another app, cash24h made away with Kenyans money in a similar way. We hate to tell you we told you so, but we told you so. We have covered similar other Ponzi schemes that you should avoid here.
