The management of Air Peace Limited has refuted allegations making rounds that some set of people have been duped on its official website, www.flyairpeace.com, and pronounce same site as fake, is the handwork of competitors, ITRealms can authoritatively report.
Reacting to exclusive investigations by ITRealms on the purported report of “Fake AirPeace Airline website … Many duped of millions of Naira,” the management of Air Peace through the Corporate Communications Manager, Mr. Chris Iwarah, denied any such activities on its website, insisting that its obviously the handiwork of competitors who are scared of Air Peace's progress and success.
According to him, rather than engage in healthy competition, these failing airlines have resorted to all forms of ill-strategies to either dissuade members of the public from visiting AirPeace authentic website or patronising its flight services, which are unarguably the best in the country at the moment.
Iwarah maintained that www.flyairpeace.com remain the authentic website of Air Peace, stressing, “Anyone who claims to have been duped could not have visited this website. A simple click on the posted site here will prove that.”
He explained that the first thing visitors to the website see is their fraud alert, declaring that “You can't access the website without closing the fraud alert. So, there is no question of anybody not seeing it.”
Air Peace, he said, has not only reported cases of alleged fraud to the police and other security agencies, but also encouraged those who claimed to have been duped to do so, adding that immediately the cases of fraud were brought to Air Peace's attention, they took out advert spaces in four major national newspapers to further alert members of the public on the activities and modus operandi of the fraudsters.
ITRealms also gathered that Air Peace ensures proper reportage of the development by all major print, electronic and social media platforms, hence it the airline has not only provided members of the public its authentic website and other social media accounts, but also seriously warned members of the public against making payments to people claiming to be Air Peace agents.
Air Peace, he said, has reported all identified fake sites to the hosts, who most of the time swiftly acts by pulling them down.
Iwarah further said that the said online platform which is carrying alleged ‘fake website” never approached Air Peace for comments on the issue.
“It is shocking how a news medium that wishes to be taken seriously will concoct outright falsehood and attempt to put it in the public domain as the truth,” he said, insisting that Air Peace will never ask anyone to make payments to private accounts for any reason.
“Members of the public should be much more diligent in their transactions to avoid being duped by unscrupulous persons,” he said, advising those who may still be doubt to contact Air Peace, headquarters at Ikeja-G.R.A.
