According to the Lebanese blogger Gino Raidy:
Liechenstein based Bonofa / Cube7 has been shut down in Lebanon by the lebanese government and arrested of one of the leaders on the airport.
Colonel Suzanne El Hajj of the Lebanon Cybercrimes Bureau, and Judge Ali Ibrahim took the legal action.
Recently UK online magazine Mirror publised a story about Bonofa, seems the company is in heavy weather. Bonofa is headed by field leaders Kalpesh Patel, Christiaan Goebel and Frankie Lawler.
Investor fury as Bonofa networking site is still a notworking site
Here’s Martin Bohm – the one lying, so to speak – whose online company Bonofa promised that “the world will change for ever” on September 22.
But its supposed revolutionary networking site Cube 7 still has not been launched, to the fury of investors. One of them is Venus Apovo of London, who paid more than £2,000 after being assured that she’d turn a tidy profit when Cube 7 becomes a global phenomenon and Bonofa floats on the stock market. She’s been refused a refund, leaving her feeling “stupid and cheated”.
I contacted German-based Bonofa on her behalf and received a reply from spokeswoman Sandra Labouesse stating: “Please note that you are not allowed in any case to publish this email.”
Sandra, you’re replying to questions from a journalist, of course I’m going to publish your email.
She conceded that all has not gone well, saying: “We must admit that the platform was not online with all the expected features.”
The practical result is that Cube 7 has repeatedly missed launch dates it set itself.
Far from taking the world by storm, the website consists largely of white space and carries the unhelpful message: “We deployed some bug fixes regarding the activities.”
Sandra said: “Venus Apovo got in contact with our support and legal team and wanted to know if she could get a refund for her package and for her team but she never told us why.”
Isn’t it obvious Sandra? She wants a refund because she’s paid for something that does not exist in any meaningful way.
But that’s just tough because Bonofa, says Sandra, “does not have a refund policy”. She also insisted that Cube 7 was sold as a networking tool, not an investment.
Efforts to recruit investors have focused on the $15 billion the company will supposedly be worth when it floats.
Its own website carries the following: “To put it in the words of Warren Buffet, one of the most successful investors of our time: 'The investment in a network marketing company was the best investment I’ve ever made'.”
Meanwhile the firm is continuing recruiting.
Every “partner” who persuades someone to join on the VIP package that costs more than £2,000 is rewarded with 500,000 dotcom points.
In other words, it gets real money, you get magic beans.
