Not all that glitters is gold may be a saying, but for Chigozie Eke, an Imo State resident, it became a stark reality after he registered for CashTube, a get-paid-for application.

Eke told FIJ that he was drawn in by the app’s cash promises because he believed them to be genuine, but his unfounded belief cost him N5,500.

According to Eke, as a get-paid-for app, the advertisers stated that users would get some money for every advertisement they watched on the app, and this motivated him to join.

“So, I looked in the app and paid the registration fee of N5,500 on December 5. For me, the next thing was to start making money by watching ads, but instead, the app began to say there was an error with my payment,” Eke told FIJ.

In response to the consistent error prompts the app displayed, Eke contacted the app’s customer care via a Telegram account to complain about the inconvenience he had encountered while using the app, but he didn’t get a clear solution.

Customer care rudely asked him if he was not mad before asking him to provide screenshots of his complaint, which he did.

“I tried to engage customer care to understand what was going on, but they could not [give clarity]. Six days after I paid to their Wema account, they started using another bank account. I requested a genuine account so that I could contact the bank for a reversal to enable me to pay to the right account, but what I got was a link to another Telegram group that I believe is not affiliated with the CashTube app,” he said.

“The shocking thing I discovered is that they changed their receiving payment account details to a new one. I need my funds back.”

FIJ attempted contacting CashTube via its account on Telegram, but there was no response at press time.

A thorough search by FIJ on whether CashTube is a scam or not shows that although the platform may have paid people sparingly in the past, it no longer pays people and may be a scam.

The app has about five million downloads on the Google Play Store, but the reviews show that something must be wrong with the app. For example, it has an overall rating of 2.9, while the top comments are positive reviews. In the critical section of reviews, many commenters show that the app is a scam.
