FIRESIDE

It’s time for us to talk about scamming.

Hi ZIMBOCASH Family

Since the very beginning of the ZIMBOCASH program, we have faced scammers. Our goal has been to create a system that will transform Zimbabwe but for some reason, a few people see this as an invitation to scam.
 
It’s not everyone – most of our community are honest people, who walk in respect and honour. 
 
But there are a handful of scammers out there who use innovative means to try to steal from others. We often hear the excuses “we just have to hustle to survive”, or “someone did it to me first so I returned the favour”. These excuses effectively say that scammers are victims and therefore are justified in stealing from others. 
 
Scamming has never been the Zimbabwean way, and the previous generation of Zimbabwean people would not have accepted such behaviour. 
 
There is no excuse for scamming others. It is theft and it is not ok. We have put in place mechanisms to catch every scammer and are taking the hardest line in response – a zero-tolerance policy on scammers.
 
However, it is up to each of you to be vigilant and to take responsibility for your transactions.
 
Zimbabwe has been through a financial implosion caused by money printing and corruption – we get it, times are tough. But that story is changing. We are establishing a sound-money system where people can engage in honest trade where each person can save and grow their wealth with dignity and respect. 
 
What are we doing about it?
We have developed a “know your customer” system based on global standards, which enables us to easily catch those who defraud others. We know who each of the scammers are and they are each being blocked from our system.
 
It is unfortunate though – as ZIMBOCASH becomes a national network, these people will be excluded from the ZIMBOCASH financial system and will not have access to ZIMBOCASH payment services. 
 
Many of the scammers who we have blocked are begging to have their accounts restored. While there are some on the team who think we should give them a chance, we unfortunately have to take a firm stance. They will be blocked from the system for at least a year, but probably forever.
 
Our goal, is to protect you – the honest ordinary person using the system. And our goal is to create a movement in Zimbabwe where the dignity of the Zimbabwean people is restored. 
 
What can you do?
1.If you encounter a scammer, report it to us at the following telegram link: https://t.me/joinchat/d4Li8BES4a9mZmJk
2. If you know of anyone who is planning on scamming people, confront them and tell them to stop. This is our network and it’s our country.
3. If you are thinking about scamming anyone, don’t do it.
4. Apply to become a ZIMBOCASH ambassador. 
 
Ambassador program
We are creating a community of people who stand by the values that have made us as Zimbabweans such great people. 
 
This starts off with our Ambassador Program which we will be relaunching – a decentralised core of passionate leaders in each community in Zimbabwe. This is a non-paid role and is for people who are passionate about the values we are living.
 
We’re only selecting the top candidates as ambassadors. It is an exclusive grouping of leaders.  New ambassadors need to have received 10 First Payment Rewards before they can apply. In other words, when you pay someone and it’s their first time to receive a payment, you get a First Payment Reward of 100 ZASH. You need to do this 10 times. These payments can be small amounts paid to friends who have been verified. We’re looking for those who are making use of the system and expanding the network to develop into our leaders.
 
The Ambassador application will be available in a few weeks, which we will notify to you via  email. Stay tuned to apply.
 
A new community, a renewed country
We are moving forward in the culture of honour and integrity. We are saying no to scammers. We are saying no to theft. We are saying yes to the renewal and transformation that we are beginning to see in Zimbabwe. We are saying yes to a sound money system. There is no-one in our community who is a victim. We are, each, heroes – overcoming adversity and pioneering a message of hope.  We are saying yes to honest trade. 
 
We are ZIMBOCASH.
