Hundreds of people in Lira City have been conned by Power Forex International, an online trading company. 

The clients of the company from the Lango, Acholi, and West Nile sub-region include teachers, businessmen and women, students, and mobile money agents. They were lured into investing money in the company with the hope of receiving huge profits after a specified period of time depending on how much one has invested.

According to the company’s guidelines, clients have to invest in one of the packages and they will be able to receive a percentage. The clients also earn a commission when they get more clients for the company.

Each of the investments lasts 60 days and a client can withdraw at most 50% of their accumulated returns between 30 to 60 days of their investment after which the client can then withdraw 100 percent.

Patrick Emot, a resident of Lira City invested 30 Million Shillings after confirming that the company is genuine and that he would access his profits.
