Social Media have become breeding ground for crimes for long a period of time now. Con men masquerading as romantic partners giving out expensive jewelry, mobile phones, money and gifts as a trap to steal from netizens effortlessly is on the rise.
Shortly after four friends suspected to be 'business' partners went missing and mutilated bodies found kilometers away, DCI have taken to social media to warn young girls against this conning game that has left many weeping uncontrollably after loosing huge amounts of money.
They say such men prey on unsuspecting women on various social media platforms by posting beautiful houses, expensive cars and pictures of self in posh places. Successful businesses is what these fraudsters hibernate under.
'While we work round the clock to bring the suspects to book, we wish to caution young ladies to be wary of such fraudsters who may end up tricking them into more dangerous situations, some of which may cost them their lives. Investigations by detectives often point to either Kisumu and Kiambu counties.'
