Police officers from Kamukunji Police Station saved a victim from suspected con vendors who operate electronic shops along Luthuli Avenue, Nairobi. The cops were on routine patrols in the Central Business District when they responded timely to the incident.

The victim had paid for his new TV set but opted out of the transaction when the fraudsters doubled the price immediately after the payment for the item was made.

He had given up on receiving his money back until the arrival of Kamukunji police officers, who took appropriate action and ensured the victim was fully compensated.

There is a growing concern by the public over unscrupulous dealers in electronics in downtown Nairobi, who thrive by conning unsuspecting customers in the guise of selling cheap TV sets and other electronics.

They lure customers with unbeatable offers on new electronics and once the agreed price is paid, they set new conditions to flee the customers. Sometimes, they double the agreed price, and getting a refund for buyers who opt out of the transaction is a daunting task.

Some of the buyers end up paying additional costs to the detriment of their pockets, with unreported incidences of customers losing their hard-earned cash in the daytime thuggery.

A team of patrol cops has been deployed to the busy street to deal with the fraudsters.
