The get-rich-quick schemes by a section of Kenyans appears to have gone a notch higher, after two suspects were arrested with crushed padlocks disguised as gold.

Rogers Kipkogei and Collins Chavera, posing as agents of a Congo based gold baron, obtained over Sh1 million from a gold investor, after showing him dust from crushed padlocks.

The victim who fell for the trick deposited the money to different Mpesa accounts, given to him by the suspects.

In what detectives believe to be a well choreographed syndicate, hundreds of SIM cards from local mobile telecommunications networks and stolen identification cards from Kenyans were recovered from the suspects’ hideout in Uthiru, Kiambu county.

Detectives believe the suspects use the personal information from the identification documents, to register the SIM cards used to steal money from Kenyans through mobile money transactions.

The duo were arraigned in court today and custodial orders granted to enable detectives complete investigations into the modus operandi syndicate.
