Kenya’s directorate of criminal investigations has arrested 19 Nigerians residing in Umoja, Kasarani and Roysambu estates within Nairobi for allegedly engaging in electronic fraud targeting Kenyans.
According to a statemnt released with mugshots read:
The Fraudsters start by befriending you on social media(Facebook) and once you accept the friend request they initiate a friendly chat that promises the victim goodies to be sent through DHL at the airport.
The following day a call will be made and someone will pretend to be an attendant at the DHL office. They will tell the victim to pay clearance fees for the same parcel they claim to have sent you.
Immediately you send the money through Mpesa another call is made requesting for some more money for other documentation and taxes.
After paying the dues demanded, your calls demanding for your parcel will not be picked. That’s the time you realize that you have been conned.
This is therefore to warn members of the general public against such fraudsters.
