By A Correspondent | Anti fraud investigators probing the controversial UK licensed immigration-sponsor and CEO of Lorac, have found the company truly defrauded people, as earlier reported by ZimEye, in a development that has seen the first of refunds being processed.
Lorac is a company that for 4 months has been collecting thousands of dollars from struggling Zimbabwean job seekers promising them work in Britain.
In July, Caroline Nyakudya avoided a media question on the recruitment cap she has on her sponsorship facilitation from the British government.
Two days later, Nyakudya went to the extent of claiming friendship with a journalist while avoiding an interview over the matter. On the Saturday, she promised she would answer the question during her Monday webcast.
A few days later, there was a shift when she blatantly refused to answer to any other question other than those she has handpicked. She announced that she is only engaging those who have paid her USD100 fee.
It is believed that she has so to date gained tens of thousands of US dollars from desperate job seekers.
She failed to explain discrepancies on company documentation she has been advertising, and also failed to disclose her limitations.
Back then, Nyakudya while on a broadcast, also said she would respond to people who inquire from her through “our official channels.”
Her response on live camera was:
I will pick out some questions shortly…so the rest of the team, if you can look out for any questions that might be there, from candidates, okay, so from existing candidates who are going through the process…those candidates who are going through the process, who have decided Lorac International is the model that they are going with. Those to us are our priority and those to us are the people that we really need to ensure understand the system, and understand how it runs. And understand how to contact and to communicate. So we want to make sure that when you are trying to contact us you are contacting us, A: on the correct numbers…You’re also contacting us, in terms of the correct pathways. So we are not really, we will not be responding to information that is not passed through our correct channels. That is not information that we are paying out any attention to at all; we will be responding to any information that is directed to us with regards to our official channels. And that is where we stand.
Yesterday the first ever customer to obtain a refund following the investigation by this news network came up to narrate her story.
She wrote saying:
Just to help someone out there ! I had paid $100 for someone , after having realised that it was money making program ,
“I filed a dispute with PayPal! Lorac health never responded but the PayPal dispute wing took it over !
“I received the refund in full ! See below ! I advise those who went through the same predicament to demand their refund through PayPal! ! ”
