19 Nigerians Arrested In Nairobi Over Electronic Fraud
According to the Criminal Investigations Directorate (DCI) in Kenya, Nigerians start by befriending social media (Facebook) and once you accept the friend request, they start a friendly conversation with DHL. .
After that, a call will be made to pretend to be a worker at DHL, who will ask the victim to pay a customs clearance fee for the package she claims to have sent. After that, another call for another call for yet another fee, this time for documentation, is made. When the last payment has been made, calls from victims requesting their package will no longer be collected.
Only then will the victims understand that they have been duped.
The fraudsters, who according to the DCI, reside in Umoja, Kasarani and Roysambu Estates in Nairobi have now arrested.
