The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has confirmed the arrest of a Chinese national Zhao Jiaotong over the E-Creater ponzi scandal.

ZRP spokesperson Paul Nyathi confirmed the development in a press statement calling on those who may had been duped to report to nearest police station.

“The Zimbabwe Republic police confirms the arrest of Zhao Jiaotong (39) in connection with a car of fraudin which unsuspecting members of the public were duped through E – Creator ponzi scheme.

“The police is inviting members of the public who might have been duped through E-Creator to any nearest police station.

“We continue to implore members of the public to exercise due deligence before making any payment to ponzi or pyramid schemes purportedly offering quick investments returns”.

The scheme collapsed last week leaving people stranded as to where to claim their money and the E-Creator accounts frozen.
