In a conversation with a webmaster, Habeeb Akewusola, ROUNDCHECK was able to get more information about the website and its structure.  

He said the site is hosted on a local host which is the reason why the link has a random URL with the domain name ‘Air peace’.  He went further to give detailed reasons why the website changes its URL once it’s been clicked on.

“It is because the website is not hosted on a live server, the Url might be changing on every click,” Habeebat said. 

The website was developed to look legit because it was being attached to Cloudflare to make it protected but it is a 100% phishing site.”

However, Habeeb went further to explain the site has not been flagged by Google because it is not hosted on a normal host and the changing URL.  

ROUNDCHECK made a thorough check on Air peace’s verified Facebook and Twitter handles and it revealed they do not have any information on the said Government subsidies.  

ROUNDCHECK noticed Air peace had once disclaimed a similar claim on the same link.  The disclaimed website is the same as this claim website but a little change was made to the v content. 

ROUNDCHECK reached out to Air Peace via email, after days of no reply, we called the center via telephone to notify them of the mail requesting their clarification. Air Peace call center notified us that the claim is false and should be discarded.

“It’s false; kindly disregard this,”  the call center said.

Verdict

The claim that an individual gets to win #100000 after answering a questionnaire about Air peace government transportation subsidies, is FALSE as findings have shown it is not VALID.
