Six arrested attempting to swindle trader out of KES 2M

04 November 2013, 15:34 Robert Kibet

Nakuru - A cartel of six con persons were on Sunday nabbed by police, as they attempted to swindle a Nakuru car dealer out of approximately KES 2 million.

The six, marauding as genuine car buyers, are said to have visited Imperial Motors in a disguised mission of buying three Toyota Probox cars.

Monica Kibowen, the car showroom’s owner, narrated to the media how the six suspects attempted to rob her of KES 2 million in the form of fake money.

Kibowen said the six suspects, carrying a stash of cash in a polythene paper bag, came to the showroom and ordered for three Toyota Probox cars.

“One of the suspects asked me to meet her behind the building. She opened the bag and I noticed that the notes they had were not genuine so I called one of my friends before informing the police who responded fast leading to the arrest of the suspects,” narrated Kibowen.

The car dealer said that she suspected the 'buyers' because after checking the cars, they refused to go for a road test.

She also could not understand why they insisted on paying for the cars in cash.

Joel Ole Sakina, one of the car dealers in Nakuru town, advised his fellow car traders be extra careful, adding that most of the fraud crimes currently are being perpetuated by women.
