A police report revealed that the lady has been using fake US dollars to carry out her transactions in various hotels in Kenya. Police say that she has been touring the Kenyan Coast using the fake currency whilst having fun in various hotels located there.

Police had to circulate the message among security agents and cashiers in the hotels she frequented in. It is estimated that she had already spent $700 fake money which is about Sh70000 before she was dramatically arrested in Watamu.

$950 fake currency was recovered from her after the arrest. She is in police custody helping them with investigations as she awaits to be arraigned in court.
