A man identified as Elijah Thomas was reported to have received and withdrew 28,000Ksh sent to him by a wrong number.
[The M-pesa messages, confirming that the money was sent]
According to a Facebook post by Joyann Muniu, his father had attended to send the money to his brother but unfortunately ended up sending it to the wrong number.
They tried reversing the money but found it had already been withdrawn. The suspect later switched off his phone making it difficult for them to reach him.
The matter has already been reported to Nanyuki police and investigations are currently underway.
Ok, this is very unfortunate? Netizens online couldn't hide their anger as they bashed the suspect for not returning the money.
[Some of the reactions online]
It's always advisable to double-check the number you intend to send money to avoid similar cases.
