Karatina University administration has raised alarm over a fraudster targeting students who failed in exams and promising them better marks.
Dr Wangari Gathuthi, the Academics registrar, has noted students, who failed in exams are approached by a 'staff' who doesn't work in the institution with promises to change their marks in the system. According to Gathuthi, students are told to part with some amount of money for their grades to be adjusted.
In her statement the Registrar Academics, Dr Wangari Gathuthi said that it has been reported students are the main targets of fraud by someone claiming to be an employee in the Karatina University Examination Office. According to this fraudster he can manage to change students' marks and adjust them as per the student's will. The fraudster says that those who have a supplementary exam as well as those who didn't sit for their exams can have marks keyed into the institutions examination system. Now the fraudster claims that those who need this to be done for them should pay some amount of money. The institution is also worried over a post on social media, which claimed that a person can get a desired University Certificate after paying a certain amount of money. However, the university has distanced itself from such shady dealings.
