‘Akaahan Terungwa is a scammer, 419 and internet fraudster’ – that was what I woke up one sad day, circa June 2015 and discovered on the internet, in all bolded CAPS.
Naturally, the very first instinct that enveloped me was shock: why would someone have the temerity to come online in such a malicious manner to defame me so?!
The shock waves took their turns and as it is usual with me, the first waves soon died down.
When that was achieved, I decided to go into research mode to figure out exactly what went wrong and importantly, who this mischievous person was, given the fact that I had never in my life scammed anyone of even a Kobo prior (and will never) either online or off.
Off I set to work – and to the very root of the matter I went.
However, before I proceed, let me share with you a little background story.
‘Akaahan Terungwa Is A Scammer’: A Little Background Story
The year was 2012.
I had just left the university, had recently got married and had sired a son and was, well, BROKE.
The cyber cafe and computer training school I had set up during my undergraduate days was drowning and I knew that it was only a matter of time before my new expenses would finally overtake my income.
I was almost desperate and at this point, made it a past-time to think out strategies to augment the little the computer business brought in daily.
Since I already had internet access and many computers around, I naturally looked online and my preference was a second income that would augment my poor (and dwindling) computer services ‘take home’.
Daily, I searched, rationalized and searched some more.
It was during one of such search sessions that I came across a site that I wish I had never (in retrospect): incomefornigerians.com (the site is now defunct) run by one Ken Ezeani.
The site (which I detailed here on this platform in my article, Ken Ezeani is a scammer) promised to teach me how to make money online.
The part that got me was that the whole process would be passive and fast!
The killer, was of course the ‘fact’ that there was a money back guarantee reality, should I not like what I saw or got.
Only N5,000 for an eBook that contained all the well kept secrets of making money online.
When I read this, I was ecstatic. Finally, I was going to learn how to make a side income and support my new and growing family. My joy knew no bounds.
I was literally walking on the clouds!
When I read the contents of this site, my wife was out, trying to get refreshments for us (the day, so far, had been a super busy one and we were both tired and hungry).
Immediately she got back to the shop with the snacks and soft drinks, I broke the news to her in the excited tone of a teenager who just found love for the very first time.
Unfortunately, she was not moved. She felt the whole thing was a scam and in her words: ‘which Nigerian will figure out how to make money online in such an easy manner and will volunteer to teach it, even for a million bucks?’
I was mad at her! My reply was that she should not be so pessimistic about an opportunity that was going to ‘better’ our lives. I had to give this a trial, at least.
The woman remained unconvinced.
With my mind made up, I made for my motorcycle ignition key (that was what I used in those days – before I bought my very first car) that was always hung on the wall close to my seat at the cafe. She got there first and firmly secured the key in her palms.
Immediately, I knew that I wasn’t going to use the motorcycle for the cash deposit to Ken Ezeani – I had to use either my legs or opt for another means of transport.
Luckily, Access Bank was just shy of a kilometer from our principal business address then – I opted to trek the distance.
In less than an hour, I had made the N5,000 deposit to: Crenex Business with account #0056460070.
As requested by the sales page, I also sent an SMS to: 08126720153, indicating that I had effected payment.
Here’s what the page looked like, when this happened. Please, note that Ken Ezeani pulled down the page after the whole world discovered the scam and even abandoned the domain. My saving grace here is that archive.org saved a copy for posterity 🙂
…And My Woes With Ken Ezeani Began!
As promised, I received an email in less than 24 hours that was supposed to detail the process of making money online for me as a beginner.
Sadly, when I opened up the mail, it was made up of about 3 different files, containing 3 different eBooks.
To say I was ecstatic is an understatement! I was overjoyed – finally, I was going to learn the carefully guarded secrets of the internet.
Like an eager groom, I was ready to ‘disvirgin’ the online world, crack it’s code and with some luck, make it big.
However, when I downloaded the first eBook, I was disappointed…the entire ‘book’ was less than 10 pages with fonts that were certainly made for the blind and inter-line spacing that was certainly crafted for those with chronic attention deficits.
My spirit sank – and instantly, I knew I was scammed and my wife was right!
The second and third ‘eBooks’ were no different and what they all contained made no sense – completely: Forex, trading online, Click Bank – options that I still wouldn’t touch with a pole (even today) after all these years of making a consistent income online.
To make matters worse, these ‘books’ were very poorly formatted, had the organization of a grade kid and attempting to comprehend them gave me an instant headache!
To make matters utterly unbearable, they all appeared to have been hurriedly put together (in an hour or less) by some desperado who was hell bent on selling something that was clearly not enough to even give out for free.
I was mad – and as pe the details of the sales page, I asked for a refund: something that I never got.
The sales page also promised that the hard copies of these eBooks would also be mailed to me…I also knew that wasn’t going to happen immediately I opened the very first ‘eBook’.
I was right: the hard copies never arrived – till date: 6 solid years after!
Surviving Ken Ezeani’s Scam, Building A Super Successful Online Business And Exposing The Thief
The next few days were hell for me – literally.
This was the very first time someone would scam me in my entire life!
To make matters worse, madam had those ‘I TOLD YOU BUT YOU WOULDN’T LISTEN’ eyes, all day (don’t ask me how such eyes are made, anyway 🙂 )
I was practically mad at everyone: my boy (who was only newly born then), my wife, my parents – even my customers and friends.
It was as if they were part of the syndicate that scammed me off my hard earned money.
To say the days then were hard is an understatement: they were very hard!
Now, the days were not exactly hard because of the cash lost – it was way more than that!
- I had lost the one means I had hitherto imagined I could help provide for my family – on a passive basis. Now, how on earth was I going to cope with the mounting bills?
- My faith in humanity (in general) and Nigerians (in particular) was grossly shaken. That was the very first experience that taught me how not to trust Nigerians!
- I had recently got married (my marriage was less than 2 years) and I was eager to impress my wife and play the super smart husband! This experience put a big punch in that ‘parade’. In my young (er) mind then, I always imagined that my wife looked upon me as the most dumb man alive and silently wondered why she married such a monumental idiot that got scammed in such a basic manner!
My life was hell. However, after about a week of getting mad at everyone, doubting my very intelligence and ultimately, doubting the reality of making money online, especially in a passive manner, I bravely put myself together and made a decision that looking back, I am extremely glad I did.
I decided that, the ugly experience with Ken Ezeani not withstanding, I was going to make money online in a VERY LEGAL FASHION and more importantly, I was going to honestly TEACH Nigerians what works – and what doesn’t.
With this firm decision, I started surfing the web and researching how to make money online (now, I always added for ‘free‘ – I wasn’t going to be scammed twice!)
However, I always made certain that I never let my wife catch me! Seeing her approach my desk, I’ll quickly close the tab – and pretend to be doing something else!!
The last words I wanted to hear from her were: ‘Sweet, so you’re doing this online thing again?’
Sure enough, I wasn’t caught – and I ensured that I cleared both cache and browser history right after getting up from the PC… I was leaving nothing to chance!
Within a few weeks of going through this sad experience and deciding that I was going to be a survivor, no matter what, I registered for my very own first domain name, Notopoverty.com – a name I chose as an outward reflection of my most fervent desire and one which, importantly, reflected my desire to teach the reality of making money online once I had grasped the basics. Who loves poverty, by the way?
This domain name is so dear to me and has been retained right to this day – it now redirects to the present site, Akaahanterungwa.com.
After Ken Ezeani failed me, my research online showed that money could be made with something called blogging – I only needed to create an awesome site, create still awesome content and importantly, apply for AdSense and money was certain when clicks were carried out by my readers.
Here’s what archive.org has of an early version of Notopoverty.
The screenshot above, was yours truly very first attempt at blogging after Ken Ezeani scammed me of N5,000. I got super angry and decided to, inspite of my anger, make something reasonable online and if I ever get the code, right, teach other Nigerians.
Unfortunately, this was not to be – at least not the way I had planned it or had read about it.
I was supposed to write really great content, comment on other blogs to ‘gather traction’ and after about 5 months, apply for the almighty AdSense program – a program that would turn my traffic and numbers into liquid cash.
I wrote articles at the speed of light; sometimes churning out about two 1500+ word articles a day.
However, my average, because of my day job with the cyber and computer training school, was pegged at 3 articles a week. I however commented a lot and in no time, my blog was in the league of the first 100,000 websites in the world, according to Alexa.com.
I was ecstatic, to say the least. I immediately applied to AdSense by Google.
To my shock and surprise, I was REJECTED. FLAT – AND ADVISED TO APPLY AGAIN FOR RECONSIDERATION IN THE FUTURE!
Once again, I was down – and I felt truly bad. A whole year gone by and not a Penny made – or the prospect of a Penny in sight. To worsen matters, Madam had at this point discovered that I was into the online game again.
To say that she was sad and wished I would ‘change’ is an understatement…looking back, the woman must have truly wondered the type of IDIOT she got married to!
Around this time, I discovered (from subscribing to the emails of one of the popular internet marketers in Nigeria then – can’t remember his name now) that there was something called mini importation.
This online business model made it possible to buy things online from China, Europe or America and ship same over here in Nigeria for dirt cheap; reselling at a handsome profit.
Knowing that as a nation, we are great consumers of all things ‘foreign’ – I figured out that the opportunity would be super awesome for me and would serve as an awesome means of earning legit money by the side to run my brand new family.
The only challenge was that this information marketer (whose name I have now forgotten) was charging handsomely to show Nigerians the ‘hidden secrets’ of this trade. As a matter of fact, this fellow did not even divulge the name of any of the platforms: you had to pay handsomely before even this basic info was relayed.
Not me…I had been bitten once – it was only logical that this time around, I shy away.
Work began in earnest on how to find reliable sites (based in China, Europe or the United States), offering such ‘mini importation’ services.
In no time – I landed in luck: an anonymous commenter mentioned on Nairaland.com that Aliexpress.com was currently one of the hottest sites for mini importation.
That was all I needed to hear: I headed straight to the site, registered and in less than 48 hours, had placed my very first order: a 7-inch portable laptop running on Windows CE.
The total amount for this laptop then, shipping inclusive, amounted to $95.87.
When this order arrived about 3 weeks after, I was officially the happiest man in the world; madam was happy too 🙂
I sold that very first laptop, two weeks later, for about 300% profit – and immediately placed new orders for solar-powered flashlights, key chains (designed with solar-powered LEDs right in), solar-powered phone power banks and an array of others things.
In no time, I had retired the computer business (both cafe and training school) and was 100% dedicated to my newfound love online.
Life was not just good: it was great! Everyone – including my lovely wife was super happy 🙂
I advertised and recruited about 10 other awesome fellows who helped with the marketing for a commission of the sales they brought in.
Usually, this was 10% but for some other items, it could rise up to 20%. To keep these awesome associates happy, I allowed them also keep any amount they made over the selling price.
The time to start teaching Nigerians was now!
That was when I created a new site: Make Money Online Nigerians – makemoneyonlinenigerians.com.
Here, unlike the first site, Notopoverty, I was hyper-specific – and targeted only Nigerians, a fact that was very clear even from the domain name.
The contents of this new site were also very specific to the niche and reality of Nigerians (and can be seen in the screenshot below).
To my surprise, this site gained traction and popularity way more than I had hitherto anticipated. In less than 6 months, things truly picked up and I decided to launch my very first information product, an eBook titled: The Mini Importation Millionaire.
This 136 paged super detailed manual on the reality of the mini importation business covered all that one needed to make sense of this business model right from prospecting to the various business platforms to some of the strategies I employed to make the model work for me in the most awesome of manners.
The eBook was an instant hit. Nigerians bought it, used my tips and always found ways to thank me. Some of the persons that bought this manual back then include Amaatimin Tertsegha Timothy, a lawyer; Keren Amaechi Ogwuma, a medical doctor and Gabriel Ogbu, an engineer.
This awesome and super insightful eBook, I’m proud to say, retails now for $0 on Gumroad – the platform I choose for it.
This new site prospered in every way and I completely forgot about AdSense or the reality of making money online with posting annoying ads all over my blog or website.
I built an audience of Nigerians who looked up to me as an authority and who took my tips and advice very seriously.
At last, my dream had come true – I was now making money online in a legitimate fashion and more importantly, I was also teaching Nigerians the very art of making money online.
I was literally floating in the skies!
One good day however, I remembered the person who had scammed me of my hard-earned money (as a newbie), Ken Ezeani, and decided to check on his site.
To my shock, incomefornigerians.com was still online and this idiot was still very much in the business of scamming other unsuspecting Nigerians!
I was mad! To make things worse, the idiot was also lifting posts from my very own blog and publishing on his as if he were the author!
I have never been that mad in my entire life!!
I decided to unmask the idiot fully – and this was the result: Kenechukwu Reginald Ezeani (Ken Ezeani) Is A Scammer.
This post, it is worthy of mention, was not original to this site. This is because, when it went live, I was not yet running this domain.
However, the anger in me (about the whole situation) has made certain that I keep the post saved, updating it as necessary and moving it from blog to blog whenever the current one I have it hosted on is no longer under my custody or when it is no longer operated by me.
It is also worth noting here that I left the makemoneyonlinenigerians.com domain to expire and I understand, someone else re-registered it and it now redirects to: https://NewsMagDirect.com.
I left the domain to expire and moved its content over to Notopoverty.com for simple and practical reasons:
- Running 2 websites and operating my mini importation business was getting hectic. I needed to have everything in one place where I could easily manage and keep an eye on.
- I also discovered that this domain name, makemoneyonlinenigerians.com, was way too long, looked spammy and was difficult for my readers to memorize. On the other hand, Notopoverty always stuck with everyone who came around…right up to this day!
Unmasking The Idiot That Called Me A Scammer, Fraudster And 419!
Ken Ezeani did not take my exposure of him to my teeming audience lightly: his style – and modus operandi, I came to understand, was (and still is) to target newbies who knew nothing online, scam the living hell out of them and leave them without any recourse or remedy.
These newbies, he figures, would not even think of recounting the story to anyone who matters online or offline (for that matter).
Sadly, I was that newbie who was different. Very different.
I was very different from the regular folks he had hitherto scammed because, in under a year, I moved from being a complete newbie to one who had an audience online and importantly, one who was also teaching others. One who others relied upon.
It was my sacred duty to let the world know about my story – especially since Ken Ezeani was still very much in the scamming ‘business’.
Immediately that post about Ken Ezeani being a scammer went live on my blog, I received an email from the idiot – directly:
Shortly afterwards, the idiot made good his threats: he published this: https://bestnaija.ng/how-akaahan-terungwa-scam-nigerians-online-t34965, https://web.facebook.com/akaahanterungwacrook/?_rdc=1&_rdr and more recently, this: https://cashoutnigeria.com/akaahan-terungwa-scam.
Please, note that some his pages where he defamed my name are no longer online while some had either their hosting or domain expire.
I also do not have the time to dig deep into the recesses of the internet to bring archived pages for this purpose. I sincerely believe that the ones I have sampled here are enough to put my point across.
Now, a close look at these pages show that they all bear the same writing style and are all reflecting the same malice and hate that have come to be his signature both online and off.
The Dubious Life Of Ken Ezeani: The Story Of A Common Thief Calling A Saint ‘Unholy’
Sometimes it baffles me: but if there is any one Nigerian who is hell bent on making money online in Nigeria the illegal way, it is Ken Ezeani.
From Incomefornigerians.com, this fellow moved over to Kerewa.net – a website that specialized in selling dubious penis enlargement drugs and questionable equipments.
There, he took on the moniker of the infamous Dr. Azolibe and terrorized the inboxes of both Nigerian males and females alike.
When that racket came to an inglorious end, the persistent thief moved to something else: Rain Gold (https://www.raingold.org/) – an MMM-like ponzi scheme that did not pay anyone any dime all through the few months that it was online.
Yes, Ken Ezeani is that brutal, stupid and determined to make money online by all means without any recourse to ethics or the concept of right and wrong.
From Rain Gold, Ken Ezeani is now running Biz Profit Info – still another incomefornigerians.com type of model, focused on selling either trash or sweet nothings to newbies online.
I’ve taken my time to document why Biz Profit Info is a scam. If you have the time, you can read about it here: Biz Profit Info By Ken Ezeani Is A Scam!
As can thus be seen, this is the reality of my chief accuser and this is the sort of life he has chosen to live.
On the other hand, I HAVE NEVER FOR ONCE SCAMMED ANYONE, ONLINE OR OFF. IF THERE IS ANYONE WHO THINKS OR KNOWS OTHERWISE, I CHALLENGE THAT PERSON TO BRING FORTH INCONTROVERTIBLE PROOF.
The case of Ken Ezeani accusing me of scam is not that of the pot calling the kettle black (for I’m completely innocent of this crooked life and have never scammed anyone in my entire life).
Rather, it is the classical case of a very black, DAMNED demon, from the very bottom of hell, looking up to an immaculate arch-angel and referring to the angel as ‘unholy’ or ‘sinful’.
Can you even begin to contemplate this?!
6 Reasons Why Ken Ezeani’s Scam Accusation On My Person Rings Dumb
Ordinarily, any sane human being should by now understand that the ‘charges’ against me, bothering on scam by Ken Ezeani are completely without base and as a matter of fact, the exact reverse is the case.
If this were (a) written argument front-loaded before a judge of competent jurisdiction, he would be satisfied and even using the criminal law basis of beyond reasonable doubt, would have held my case proven and instead, would have asked Ken Ezeani to take my spot!
However, it is my job to go further to make certain that even Ken Ezeani’s mother, reading this, would come to the irresistible conclusion that she did not only gave birth to a complete idiot and moron; but also an unrepentant thief and internet fraudster.
Accordingly, below are 6 (irrefutable) reasons why Ken Ezeani, calling me a scammer and internet fraudster rings completely dumb for anyone who still has a functional brain.
Please, permit me to fire!
1. Ken Ezeani Has Gone Petty To Even Include Both My Wife And Child In What They Know Nothing Of!
The very first indication that will open your eyes (or the eyes of anyone who is objective) is that, there is a ton of malice in Ken Ezeani’s accusation of my person.
My wife (who does not bother with the online world at all) and son (who just wrapped up his nursery classes) are all mentioned in very negative light, with their photos lifted up from my Facebook wall and defamed in the worst way possible.
Here’s the very first screenshot, that of the slanderous publication relating to my wife, Akaahan Ngufan.
Not quite done, this fellow had to further search my Facebook archives and retrieved the photo I took with my son at a recreational park in Makurdi, Benue State when the boy was less than 3 years old.
Now, the fact that Reginald Ezeani can stoop this low to implicate a kid that can’t even pronounce his name properly goes a long way to summarize the type of person he is, how he is without conscience and how he can (further) go to any length, legal or otherwise to get his ends.
Here’s the screenshot:
Now, what manner of person does these sort of things just to bring another down?!
2. I’ve Kept All My Known Domain Names, Right Up To The Very First One, NTP!
A scammer, fraudster or thief tries to cover his or tracks as much as possible. This is done to avoid arrest or future repercussions that may befall him/her.
However, aside makemoneyonlinenigerians.com (which I deliberately left to expire because the domain name was too long, looked spammy and I couldn’t afford to maintain 2 sites without being distracted), I have kept all other domain names I have owned over the years.
As a matter of fact, they all redirect to the present one which bears my full name: Akaahan Terungwa.
The domains are:
- Notopoverty.com &
These domains have all the content that I ever published carefully saved by archive.org – patiently waiting for posterity. Even makemoneyonlinenigerians.com, which I no longer own, can still be accessed with the aid of the way back machine (archive.org) so that one can easily see what it is I published on the site when I owned and operated it.
I am that plain and forward because, I truly have nothing to hide; for I’ve lived an honest life since I was conscious enough to differentiate between right and wrong.
On the other hand, can this be said of Ken Ezeani?
The facts, speak for themselves:
- Earnnaira.com &
- Raingold.org –
All point to nothing or are simply abandoned.
The idiot does not have the guts to keep even a single social media account in his name (for the records, I have active profiles with LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter – all bearing my full and legal name, Akaahan Terungwa. Until recently too, I had one with Google Plus. However, the service packed shop earlier this year and I lost that one.
Can you now see?
As a matter of fact, even the domain that bears his very name, KenEzeani.com, has been abandoned. What remains of the site is a snap from the Way Back Machine which he carelessly forgot to exclude.
Who but a crook does this?
Who but an unrepentant scammer operates in such a manner?!
3. All The Accusations Of Ken Ezeani Against Me Are Without His Name Attached!
Usually, when you’re calling someone out or accusing them of a wrong doing, you make certain that you attach your name to the publication or call out so that:
- The person accused will know the one accusing him/her. This is a right and is supposed to help the other party defend themselves.
- The listening-world ought to also know the parties involved so that they can apportion blame where it fits appropriately and not blindly ‘guess assign’.
In the instant case, all the accusations of Ken Ezeani on my person do no bear his name in any place. As a matter of fact, I had to use the emails we exchanged, the fact that all the accusations are styled in a similar fashion and a lot of common sense to figure out who my accuser was.
On the contrary, when I’m calling out the idiot, I make bold to put my name to the publication (besides publishing same on a domain bearing my full name) so that if he’s bold to either reply or sue, he’ll have a name to attach either to the article or summons.
Do you see the difference?
Now, between us, who is more likely to be a thief, scammer and ordinary fraudster without any iota of shame?
Here’s an example of what I mean, pictorially:
Now, do you get a feel of what I mean?
This is how all his accusations appear: no name, no way to trace him, nothing. The grand object is simply to tarnish my image. It is as simple and as short as that.
On the other hand, when I accuse this idiot, I take my time to make certain that the article in question is published on my website here directly and more importantly, my name is clearly there as the author and publisher, clear for him to sue if he dares.
Further, I always start such an article with a quote, referencing the fact that he is a thief and common scammer. The author and source of the quote is always me, Akaahan Terungwa.
Let me show you what I mean:
Now, kindly be the judge: which of these two articles are you likely to attach more weight to, given the fact that one is completely without base, facts or a known, clear author and another is straight to the point, filled with indisputable facts and has a clear name, Akaahan Terungwa attached as the publisher?
4. Ken Ezeani Also Accused My Good Friend, Abass Toriola In A Similar Manner!
Abass Toriola is a very good friend of mine; our friendship dates back to circa 2014 when I became an authority in the make money online niche in Nigeria.
Abass was (and remains) an authority in the niche too. As a matter of fact, his site, WebIncomePlus predated NoToPoverty and there are many things I learnt from the site (as an encyclopedia of making legal money online in Nigeria) and from Abass (as a person and its publisher).
Not done with attacking me, he also attacked Abass – a perfect gentleman and medical doctor who I can vouch for any time, any day as one of the most honest Nigerians online today.
Kindly take a look at the screenshot implicating Abass here:
Here’s the direct link to this completely false and utterly fabricated accusation on the person of Dr. Toriola: http://webincomeplusscam.blogspot.com/2015/04/abass-toriola-is-nigerian-internet-scam.html.
Also note how the dates coincide with the time range when he started truly trying to ruin my reputation online.
As expected (Abass takes no BS), Abass fired a rejoinder where he cleared his name in a super brilliant fashion, summarizing that the person implicating him in a false manner (Ken Ezeani) remains a faceless, unfortunate coward.
Here’s the direct link to Abass’ rejoinder. There, you will see tens of comments all in defense of the truth. Further, you’ll see that the whole world had already figured out what a great scam Ken Ezeani was – hence his decision to let his primary scamming tool then, incomefornigerians.com die out.
Now, it is worthy of mention to dig in and realize why Ken Ezeani attacked Abass with the sole intent of ruining his reputation online.
Like me, Abass took the burden of the newbie online personal and did all he could to help.
A cursory look at Abass’ website, shows that he wrote (and still writes) in a no BS manner, dispelling the many myths newbies have about online business and more importantly, opening their eyes in a super educative fashion to spot online scams miles away and avoid same.
Of course, this meant less business for the Ken Ezeani and his likes. Accordingly, he perceived both Abass and my person as threats to his continual ‘survival’. With his super small brain, he thus figured that the best thing to do to protect his interest was to tarnish our images so that he could remain the undisputed authority in the niche, one who could scam newbies exactly like he liked without anything happening.
Such a big shame and super sad reality!
5. Unlike Ken Ezeani, I Still Preach The ‘Online Gospel’ & Still Use My Very Legal Name!
The make money online niche in Nigeria is quite funny and super interesting: folks pop out for a time, talk about making serious money online, fool as many Nigerians as they can and fizzle out when they discover that the bubble has burst.
When I came into this niche circa 2013, I met many. Sadly, only Abass Toriola still writes on this all important subject today.
All the others have vanished – like a puff of smoke!
The ones who have not, have changed tactics and stopped using their names, to avoid detection from the public. Ken Ezeani is a prime example of this category.
On the other hand, though I have re-branded over the years, I’m still known all over the internet as the guy who makes money online and importantly, the fellow who teaches Nigerians how to do same.
All this, I do, using my real, legal name, Akaahan Terungwa. This has hasn’t for once changed and will never.
On the other hand, Ken Ezeani has changed names more than any serious human will do in ten lifetimes: For instance, at various points in time, he was known online as:
- Dee Obinna;
- Dr. Azolibe;
- Osite James;
- Ikemba Eze;
- Cyprian Ogbegbu and more recently,
- John Okobi.
Which honest Nigerian will ever indulge in this type of mess?!
6. The Records Of ALL Websites I Have Ever Run Are Available On Archive.Org. This Is Not The Same With Ken Ezeani!
If you’ve been paying attention to this article, you’ll notice that I’ve mentioned archive.org more than once. This awesome site/tool is a memory of all things past online.
Periodically, the tool takes ‘captures’ of a site and saves these for future reference. These captures are essentially photographs for the world to see how a site looked 2, 5, 10 or even 20 years ago.
Sadly, there are also a ton of ways which you can specifically ask that your site be excluded from this amazing tool:
- Create a DMCA takedown notice.
- Place a nice piece of code in your site’s robot.txt file (specifically instructing the capture tool’s bots to exclude your site when crawling) or
- Email Archive.org directly asking for permanent removal.
Now, why it is not exactly clear which of these 3 methods Ken Ezeani used, almost all the sites associated with him have been excluded directly from the Way Back Machine.
Take a look at Incomefornigerians.com for example:
This is not a mistake: it is rather a super deliberate attempt to clean off all his dirty footprints from the face of the internet so that to an unsuspecting person, he appears genuine and crime free, even if a thorough background check is run against his name.
On the other hand, ALL my sites (and I truly mean ALL – both present and past) have been covered by this awesome tool and the history is there for anyone who is interested to take a look.
As a matter of fact, I check the tool myself at least once every year and laugh at the little mistakes and progress I have recorded through the years, rising from an insignificant newbie to an authority online.
Now, between my person and Ken Ezeani, who is hiding something?
Between us, who is likely to be a thief, scammer and common internet fraudster?!
Why This Reply Of Mine, Years Later?!
Initially, when Ken Ezeani brought up these series of accusations against me, circa 2015, I defended myself elaborately on my then site, Notopoverty.com.
However, as it is common with me, I killed that site (and redirected its domain to the present site) when I figured that it wasn’t productive again.
All through the years, I ignored crafting this rejoinder till a close friend drew my attention to the fact that there are series of articles online alleging that I am an internet scammer.
I took a look on Google again and decided it was perhaps right to put the records straight one more time and clear my name from this less than ideal mess once and for all.
This is the result of that decision 🙂
At over 6,000 words, this is certainly no mean read.
However, nothing else would have cleared my name better.
For wraps, I strongly believe that you now know and fully understand who the true scammer is between Kenechukwu Reginald Ezeani and me, Akaahan Terungwa.
P.S: After Teaching The Art Of Making Money Online For Years, 3 Of My Best Selling eBooks Are Now FREE!
I have always enjoyed the gracious art of teaching Nigerians the very art of making money online.
As the economy worsens in Nigeria everyday, it is a matter of expedience that more Nigerians understand that they can create legal wealth, from the internet, right in the comfort of their very own bedrooms.
When I started, my policy was to charge a nominal fee to cover my production costs.
However, after many years online and having been blessed on this same internet beyond measure, I figured out that the time to give back and make things truly free is NOW.
Accordingly, all my books on the reality of making money online in Nigeria are now FREE – completely. All you need do as a Nigerian is download them, read them, put to action what is contained therein and make money!
If this is you, kindly download the 3 awesome books on Gumroad directly.
Stay good – and scam free! And, importantly, let me know what you think in the comments below.
