Conmen on the loose in Kisumu

07 March 2012, 16:29 Oduor Omondi

Businessmen in Kisumu have been put on the look out following a surge in the number of conmen operating in the town.

Kisumu District Criminal Investigations officer, Peter Matu, says in the last one week alone, cases of conmen purporting to be genuine businessmen have increased, with traders of Asian origin being the prime targets. The conmen are reported to be fleecing traders of huge sums of money while pretending to be in positions of supplying or purchasing goods from them.
Two separate incidents were reported on Monday when two businessmen of Asian origin were conned of KES. 800,000 and KES. 600,000 respectively when two men presented them with fake LPOs and a fake cheque for goods they had already supplied.
It is only last week when a Kisumu court remanded a middle aged man for issuing a fake cheque worth KES. 500,000. Moses Muiruri was accused of issuing the fake cheque to one Atul Kumar Shah as payment for building materials he had purchased.
Police are now calling on businessmen at the lake side city to confirm with respective banks whenever they receive cheques from any customer before issuing them with the goods.
