The victim of the alleged scam says the woman who control the Box now resides in Antigua and Barbuda.

The Jamaican woman reached out to Antigua Newsroom about her ordeal, saying that she has not been able to recover her monies despite weeks of trying.

She alleges that the woman  stole JMD 30K from herself and other members of the box hand.

The alleged victim provided ANR with screenshots of messages with the woman promising to send the box hand via Western Union.

Two weeks later the woman says this has not been done and the Jamaican woman has stopped responding to her messages.

We withheld the name of the woman for legal reasons, however, the victim is threatening to publish the woman’s name and photo on social media.

  2. I’ve never heard of “box hand”, is it like the pyramid scheme?

    It no sound good to me!

    • If you never hear about a “box hand” then you definitely not born and raised in Antigua. Even kids in school knows about “box money” and collecting their “box hand”

    • Its not a pyramid.
      Here is a very simple example. 12 people pay in 1000 each month. Each month one member gets 12000. After your payment, you are expected to keep putting in your 1000 each month for the remainder of the year, as not to defraud others.
      This is a very simple example, not really representive of what really happens. Most often, you are paying more than you get back, to pay for the person managing the box.

    • Say what?Throwing box money is a old as the hills! It helped a lot of people back in the day, but trust is key.
