Tongan mum loses housing deposit

Tongan mum of two speaks about losing house deposit after being scammed by ‘friend’

Samena, not her real name, paid $5300 upfront for packages with OneCoin on behalf of herself and her sons.

Tagata Pasifika reports after transferring the money Samena attended a meeting where, in her words, “I still didn’t understand anything.”

She tried to pull out, but her ‘friend’ said she had already verbally agreed to the terms and conditions, despite never seeing them.

Despite being given a password, her concerns at the situation grew.
