Be Aware: Everything That Glitters Isn't Gold, See What Two Pseudo Gold Vendors Sold to Their Victim

Cases of pseudo items being sold to buyers has been skyrocketing and as the years goes, scammers are improving their bravery towards their victims to ensure their chances of being nabbed are becoming lower. And this is why wise men came up with the saying; when the deal is too good, think twice. However, most people tend to go controversial to this by rushing to make quick decisions which later comes in expense of their valuables.

The latest victim of scam is a gold investor. According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the victim made a deal with two individuals identified as Rodgers Kipkogei and Collins Chavera. This is after they showed him spurious dust from crashed padlocks that had similar colour to the rare metal; gold.

If only the victim was aware of trick he was falling into, he would have speculated twice before proceeding to his next move. However, as innocent as he was, he adhered to the vicious men orders by sending over 1 million Kenyan shillings to different mpesa numbers.

The fraudsters windfall didn't last for long as they were later nabbed in the last week of January while on hideout in Kiambu county. Among the recovery items were stolen identification cards and hundreds of simcards from different telecommunications lines namely safaricom, airtel and Telkom.

On 28, January 2021, the vicious men were arraigned in court and custodial orders given to the detectives to accomplish thorough investigations.
