All Kenyans who use mobile money transfer should beware of the new strategy developed by con men who pounce on people immediately they withdraw cash from mobile money agents.
In an incident that happened today 5th July a young woman lost Ksh 25000 to con men after withdrawing from a mobile transferring agent in Nairobi’s Central Business District (NCBD). The lady was surprised and confused when three strangers confronted her and called her by her name.
One of the strangers (a lady) told her that she had done a transaction that had not been verified and upon touching her bag to hold on to the money the lady grabbed it and escaped together with her two accomplices.
It is believed that there could be a high possibility that the con people are partnering with the mobile money agents to still from customers. Kenyans need to be careful whenever they withdraw money especially in the CBD.
