Radio Jambo has today posted a particular photo on their Instagram page that has really got Kenyans online talking.
The photo itself, is a screenshot of a text message from an unknown number, who is obviously a fraudster. It contains an M-pesa code and a certain amount of money sent by the unknown sender. However, the current balance of the receiver is locked.
After receiving this text, the sender usually calls back and claims to have sent you money wrongly and would ask you to return it back. If you are not aware, you might fall victim of fraud.
This post is part of a campaign by Safaricom to sensitize Kenyans on how to protect themselves from fraudsters especially during this pandemic where many people are jobless and idle.
Have you ever received such texts before? If yes, what was your reaction? Share your thoughts with me in the comment section and dont forget to subscribe.
