When Foluke, a technician, found Ecotech Fuelless Ltd. Facebook page in October, her first thought was to buy her parents a generator that doesn’t run on fuel, but she now regrets contacting the ‘company’.

Foluke told FIJ that after she chatted to the page, she discovered that she would have to make a deposit of N40,000 for the generator of her choice, which she did on October 20.

According to Foluke, the handler of the page told her to pay an additional N23,000 for the installation of the generator but she refused because it was not part of what Ecotech told her from the start.

“I told them to get to my parents’ house, where they would install the generator, and someone else would give them the money for installation and their balance. He then sent me a link to track the delivery of the generator, but I noticed that the link didn’t take me to their website,” Foluke told FIJ.

She said the representative of the company, who was chatting with her throughout the whole process, stopped taking her calls after she refused to pay the requested fee.

“Two weeks went by, and he told me that until I paid for installation, his company would not take the generator to my parents’ place. I then started to post on Facebook to inform people about them, and Facebook brought the page down,” she said.

“But there are other pages that they are also using. I chatted with him with my foreign number, and it was still the same modus operandi. I asked them to send me their website, but they did not respond again. They put a Katsina State address.”

Trying to find out if it was habitual for Ecotech to renege on their word and defraud their customers, Foluke found that the company has several pages all geared towards scamming their customers.

FIJ found that there are several Ecotech pages and groups on Facebook. When FIJ called Ecotech Fuelless via one of their phone numbers plastered on a Facebook post, the respondent asked this reporter to send Foluke’s payment receipt, which this reporter did. Afterwards, he said he would get back, but he has not done so.
