These jobs always involve investing your money in a non existent schemes or being told to refer someone in order to earn some cash. Apart from ponzi schemes, some might also try to cheat you to pay some registration fee in order to get loans and financing.

2. They sell products at very cheap prices.

Since the prices of goods in Kenya are relatively high, fraudsters tend to advertise non existent products with very low prices. A good example is the data bundles. Fraudsters have a product that they commonly referrer to as "mwitu bundles". Here, they will promise to give you subsidized non-expiry bundles at very low prices.
