Kenyans Warned By Kenya Power As it Gives The Following Important Information Concerning Tokens

The Kenya Power and Lighting Company Limited (KPLC) has sent a stern warning to Kenyans to be watchful of fraudulent schemes used by electricity conmen to rob them money. Most Kenyans have been caught in the hands of fraudsters, who tend to be selling electricity tokens at cheap prices.

In a recent announcement made on its official Facebook page and Twitter account, KPLC cautioned Kenyans about the evil people who disguise themselves as officials from KPLC and then use WhatsApp, Facebook, Telegraph, or text messages with offers of "TokenMwitu." The announcement entails that the fraudsters will send threatening warnings of disconnecting energy supply before requesting for cash to be sent through private numbers, mostly Mpesa.

The statement from KPLC reads, "Fraudsters are smart people who devise a variety of ways to obtain money from unsuspecting customers. For instance, disguised as officials from our company, they send you WhatsApp, Telegram, or text messages with offers of #TokensMwitu or make telephone calls with demands to disconnect your supply for non-payment, then they ask the victims to send them money (mostly M-PESA) through a private mobile money number. To avoid potential loss through fraud, only buy your tokens or settle your power bills through Mpesa Paybill numbers 888880 and 888888 for pre-paid and post-paid services, respectively. Dial *977# to pay now, or view other authorized channels via Our security teams are working tirelessly to get rid of such unwanted characters. #FraudSiHustle "
