Public Statement | As regards the maligning messages from sokoloan

My attention has been drawn to various messages going round via SMS from “Sokoloan” especially to phone numbers saved on my phonebook or numbers that has called me before.

First of all, I take responsibility for not being careful with your phone number which eventually got into the wrong hands and I sincerely apologise for that.

I have decided to make a public statement to clear all doubts and also respond once and for all to people who may be having questions in their minds.

Of a truth, I used “Sokoloan” app to get a microloan which was scheduled to be due in 14days time. Unknown to me, they had access to my contacts using the app on my phone. By the end of the 14th day, I couldn’t clear the debt because of circumstances beyond my control. However, I communicated this to one of their collection agents who called earlier.

The next day, I started receiving calls from people reporting that an image-tarnishing SMS has been sent to them. One of the messages read “This is to inform the general public that the criminal family of Onyedikachukwu George Nnadozie, No: 08030688325, has duped a company of money & found wanted, He is not to be trusted with money or anything that has to do with money.”

In Sokoloan’s terms and conditions, sending maligning messages to the contacts of their user who defaulted was not indicated. A part of the term states “…we hereby undertake that any personal information you provide or obtained by us shall be subject to the highest standards of privacy, security and confidentiality and such information will not be disclosed to any third party other than as required by applicable laws, rules and regulations.”

On their FAQ page, they wrote: “There may be fees associated with late repayment. In addition, defaulting loans are reported to national Credit Bureaus and this can severaly affect your ability to access loans in future…” On another part they also wrote “…when using Sokoloan, you data is always secure. Our platform uses world-class standard security and encryption technology to protect all details. When you provide us with information, you can also be assured of your privacy – our loan agreement is kept confidential.”

Sokoloan has breached their agreement with its customers. All efforts to reach them on the first day that the messages were sent proved abortive. I was able to reach them the next day and another agent by name “David” was the one who spoke with me. I called his attention to the SMS that has been making round and he started apologising, pretending as though the company didn’t know what happened. I made it clear that I was not going to clear the debt for any reason except a letter of apology is written to me which will be made public and also, they will resend messages to all my contacts to rectify the damages they have caused.

David agreed to my terms but insisted I must make the payment before they do the needful which I am not willing to do and will never do. Since then, they have continued sending messages to all my contacts and yet skyrocketing the interests on the microloan.

We are already making plans to start a legal proceedings against the fraudulent organisation.

Be rest assured that I, Onyedikachukwu George Nnadozie and my family are not fraudulent and we have not been declared wanted. We have been going about our normal activities without hassles.
I appreciate everyone who has called.

Signed
Onyedikachukwu George Nnadozie

  • ANGLICAN CHURCH, A DEAD CHURCH?
    I laugh when I see some Pastors subtly loathe Christians and Reverends who are members of some mainline denominations. What do some of these folks think and how do they think? That wearing suit and tie makes one more knowledgeable than some “cassock-wearing” preachers? Or that being a member of a “noisy” assembly makes you… Continue Reading →
  • STILL MISSING YOUR EX?
    Sometimes, missing your ex is not an indication that you aren’t in a perfect relationship. It also doesn’t mean something is wrong with you. Your relationship with your ex was special and even though you have moved on, the love relationship has its marks on your soul. This is especially true for relationships where you… Continue Reading →
  • KING JAMES VERSION OF THE BIBLE SOUNDS SO PARTRIACHY. WAS IT A DELIBERATE ATTEMPT TO SUBJUGATE WOMEN?
    There are concerns from people about the language of the Bible and in fact, the King James Version of the Bible. There are claims that King James deliberately had translators remove change “UNISEX” words to masculine words to appeal only to men. Is that correct? Short answer: It’s very INCORRECT. Long answer: The Bible was… Continue Reading →
  • WOMAN, It’s your right to EXERCISE DOMINION.
    Where did we got the idea that women are limited to just very few career choices or the things that they can do? Where did we get the idea that “it’s a man’s world?” The Bible didn’t present such notions. The Bible is vivid with God’s arrangements! “So God created humans in his own image…. Continue Reading →
  • THE BRITISH “RITUAL” GOAT VS AFRICAN CRITICS
    First things first, there isn’t any goat used for rituals by the British royal family as claimed by some Nigerians who are sympathetic to the already dead paganistic practices that were prevalent in the precolonial times. They claim that Britain came to Africa and destroyed our tradition which included cruel treatment and killing of Animals… Continue Reading →
  • SLAVERY: Africa Needs To Apologise To Africa
    The death of Queen Elizabeth II has triggered scintillating conversations and the prevalent dudgeons some Africans have about and towards the British Monarch and the white race. But is this vexation justified, or are we all trying not to be accountable for the actions of our great grandfathers? Why does it seem that there is… Continue Reading →
