Internet entrepreneur Dana Chanel (not her real name) and her husband Prince Donnell are being accused of running a scam that has allegedly stolen money from thousands of victims.
There is an Instagram page, https://www.instagram.com/danachanelscamming/, dedicated to exposing the scams of Dana, her husband and her father – who is alleged to be the mastermind behind their alleged schemes.
According to reports, the Philadelphia District Attorney is seeking out individuals who have been scammed by Dana in order to investigate their business dealings.
Their business entities are Sprinkle of Jesus, Alakazam Apps, CurlBible and Jumping Jack Taxes. And in the below video interview with Sister Circle, Dana explains how her father taught her how to target Black people and get money ‘from the streets.’
At the 1:00 minute mark Dana explains how her father took her for a ride through the ‘hood and pointed out the businesses that last year after year. Those businesses are beauty salons, tax preparers, credit repair, and although she didn’t mention it – Black churches!
And at the 6:10 minute mark she says her Dad taught her how to get money ‘even if it’s from the streets!’
And she used that blueprint to design her business offerings which include beauty (CurlBible), tax preparations (Jumping Jack Tax), credit repair (Credit Exterminators), and the Bible (Sprinkle of Jesus). And she also added another business offering, mobile app development (Alakazam Apps.)
The target market for these business are Black consumers and Black entrepreneurs seeking to build wealth for themselves and their families. And many of the victims say they trusted Dana and Prince Donnell because they profess to be Christians.
However, the couple is accused of taking customers money and not fulfilling their promises.
Check out some of the alleged victims statements, and keep in mind these are only allegations at this point as they have not been proven in a court of law.
