2 Nigerians and a Russian arrested over Swiss Golden Ponzi Scheme

The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has arrested two Nigerians and a Russian after a receiving petition from thousands of complainants who alleged that they invested in Swiss Golden Investment which was advertised as an online investment.


EFCC said a total of N216,402,565.05 was receovered from Swiss Golden Investment, an online investment that purportedly deals in buying and selling of Gold Bars.

Maxim Lobaty, a Russian and two Nigerians: Austin Emenike and Dickson Nonso Onuchukwu in Lagos, were arrested after petitioners alleged that after investing over a billion naira into the business, the company refused to pay them any dividend or pay them back their capital.

The suspects who were conveyed to the Kano operational zone of the EFCC for further investigation, consented to the refund of the investment. Subsequently, a total sum of N216, 402,565.05 have now been recovered.

Further investigation revealed that Swiss Golden which is headquartered in Hong Kong was discovered through investigation to be a Ponzi scheme, has defrauded over seven thousand Nigerians to the tune of over N3,000,000,000 (Three Billion Naira) only.

The agency further stated that efforts are being made to recover the money involved, and the alleged suspects be brought to justice.
