Whitenicious boss, Dencia has released a press statement accusing luxury shopper, Miss Chuks Pearl Nneamaka Ogonna and one Mr.Akinlonu Abiola Mobolajito of defrauding her company of N40M and $15,000 fraud, forgery, conspiracy and identity theft . Pearl Chuks, was the personal shopper who called out Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh in 2014, for not paying some replica designer goods. She has since been representative for Dencia‘s Whitenicious.
Watch the videos of Pearl confessing to the alleged theft:
The Press statement:
“In and around August 2014, I hired the aforementioned person -Pearl to represent my company as a salesperson in Nigeria and other neighboring countries. Her key responsibility was to sell and deliver products to clients who were unable to place online orders with credit or debit cards. Pearl was a fan who told me her family situation and I tried helping her by employing her.
“Clients were instructed to deposit funds only to her bank account and some paid cash on delivery. In 2014 between August and the end of that year, she reported sales of 6,259,089.49 million Naira. In 2015,27.987,658.8 Million Naira and over 8.1 million naira so far in 2016. Collectively this amounts to over the sum of 40 million naira (estimated $200,000). The money was entrusted in her possession and an estimated 5 million naira was used for approved expenses and errands.”
Dencia went on to describe the luxury lifestyle she provided Pearl, as she had come to trust her to make most of her business decisions.
On the conspiracy between Pearl and her boyfriend, Mobolaji, the statement read:
“Pearl and her boyfriend Akinlonu Abiola Mobolaji were stealing the money she was entrusted with. In addition to these embezzled funds, an additional $15,000 was advanced to her to secure a location for a proposed boutique where I intended to start a venture selling high end fashion items in Abuja. The texts also detail how she conspired to defraud an additional $8,000 which I didn’t send.
“Everything was revealed and her criminal activities were unexpectedly exposed when I randomly was looking through her phone at 2AM March 2nd in an attempt to try to convince her boyfriend not to break up with her via text. I stumbled across the texts on her phone explaining in detail how she and her boyfriend Akinlonu Abiola Mobolaji conspired to steal my credit cards and banking information to attempt to buy cars. I had noticed some suspicious activities on my card prior to reading the texts and can only conclude she probably had something to do with it. I have asked my book keeper to initiate an audit to determine the exact amount stolen by this pair.”
So far, Pearl is yet to fully account for the money she had been entrusted with in the course of their business transactions.
“When I confronted her with my evidence she confessed to the allegations and still cannot adequately account for the money she was entrusted with. She claims she loaned her mother Mrs Eddienwachukwu Chinwe blessings Nonyelum N3M and boyfriend Akinlonu Abiola Mobolaji N10M and $13,000. Her own texts in her own words explain how she was buying bottles of expensive alcohol and living it up with my stolen funds despite my generosity and kindness towards her. She has betrayed my trust and squandered the life changing opportunity I provided her. There are millions of people who will have cherished a similar opportunity so I refuse to let this change who I am as a person. Everything I did for her was from the kindness of my heart and without expectations.
“Despite the colossal betrayal, I still let her stay in my house and fed her. I was upset but never attacked her physically or verbally. I was more concerned about recovering my money, cutting my losses and having her return to her residence in Kaduna Nigeria. It was never my intent to let this situation develop into a public matter, I am not putting this out for the court of public opinions to judge us.My preference was to keep this situation as a private matter. I told her mom to buy her a ticket to return to Nigeria on the 5th of March ( see attached message) but her mom ignored that because she wanted to come to la, I didn’t feel safe or comfortable with her at my house so I paid for her return ticket to Nigeria after her family didn’t act on it. Her family was trying to put money together as they claimed ( see screenshot) Her Dad claimed their pastor said the boy Akinlonu Abiola Mobolaji used Juju on her but I dismissed that because more money was missing not just what she gave the boy ( see attached account information which excludes N8M from 2016 sales.”
The statement went on to reveal that Dencia had received police officers at her residence, with Peral’s mother claiming that the business entrepreneur had kidnapped her daughter.
With the aid of video proof showing Pearl confessing to the allegations leveled against her, Dencia who had been advised to arrest Pearl, declined for fear of losing her money all together.
It was later revealed that the plan had been for the kidnapping charges to stick, allowing Pearl to make away with the missing sum of money.
“After questioning myself & Pearl,They didn’t understand what the kidnapping story was about, they asked me if I wanted her arrested and told me the steps to take. My intentions are not for Pearl to go through the American prison system, her family doesn’t have the money to even help themselves talk less of lawyers in the USA plus I already didn’t feel safe with her being even in California as I didn’t trust her at all.I told the Ventura county police that this case will be handled in Africa where Pearl will be arrested upon arrival, I presented them her air ticket and the petition for her arrest. My only interest at this point is the recovery of my money so I am sending out this release in an tempt to recover my stolen funds.
“I have attached two links on YouTube with Pearl confessing to her hideous criminal behavior. It’s clear as day she is not remorseful and I’m beyond disappointed at her mother’s (Mrs Eddienwachukwu Chinwe blessings Nonyelum) response.
Before my trip to New York Pearl claimed her mom wasn’t doing well in New York and asked me to send her $500 which I did, Keep in mind this is barely a month after my brother passed but I still found the space in my heart to help her mom.
“At this point, I have asked my attorney and applicable law enforcement agencies to assist in recovering my stolen funds. I will not make anymore comments on this regardless of what her family says.”
Dencia also released several screenshots of conversations between Pearl and her boyfriend and screenshots between Dencia and Pearl’s mother. See the photos below, plus photos of contracts and agreements..
