Omoelublog did findings to call the numbers on the scheme provided phone numbers to find out what went wrong but the number wasn’t going through, probably switched off.

The number given as customer care hot line is also not available, but there are names of certain individuals on the site as management of Altlas Initiative Scheme.
Nigerians should be careful of fraudsters claiming to be helper. They are everywhere now in the name of empowerment scheme.
