Discrepancies

  • Brother of Dylan Sharkey
  • Dylan Sharkey whilst working for IUNGO employed Andrew Sharkey the Asian GM of Rapid Capital to represent IUNGO in ASIA despite Rapid Capital not being listed on his resume. Andrew Sharkey has no experience in the field and adds nothing. This is a bogus position created to employee a family member. Andrew Sharkey was not working for any company in March 2018 when he started with IUNGO and on his resume it states that he was on a Sabbatical from January to August 2018.
