DCI Trace A Woman Who Spent Ksh 84K Mistakenly Sent To Her Number Even After Dumping Her Line

Amos Kibaru, a Twitter user, explained via his handles how he was able to recover Ksh 84,000 that he had mistakenly sent to an individual's number on October 18th. And the individual was apprehended again with the assistance of DCI via Safaricom. By obtaining a digital footprint of how the individual used the funds. The digital footprint reveals that the individual transferred Kshs 50,000 to her second line of credit within minutes of receiving the money. The remaining balance was then used to purchase KPLC tokens after sending Ksh 20,000 to the mother. She then dropped the first line and went about her business on the second line. She then transferred Ksh 43,000 to a Fundi. Magdalene Wairimu Muiruri, who has been identified, was tracked down to Gathanji in Thika and charged with cybercrime.

Using funds that were sent to your Mpesa by mistake is considered theft in the country. Even those who benefited from the loot are being pursued by the law. In this case, both the mother and the fund will be treated as co-conspirators. Furthermore, paying utility bills with Mpesa, such as purchasing KPLC tokens with the funds, will result in detectives burst into your living room. If you are found guilty in court, you face a two-year prison sentence or a fine.
