Wananchi warned over fake currency

07 May 2012, 12:00

Imenti North District OCPD James Kithuka has urged wananchi to be careful when handling mobile money banking transactions after cases of
fake currency being circulated in the region.

Speaking on Saturday Kithuka said police had received one case of some people depositing fake money to an Mpesa agent within Meru Town.

“On Thursday we got a report from one agent who was asked to deposit shs.50, 000/= only to learn later the money was fake,” noted OCPD.

He confirmed that the clients pretended as if communicating with somebody on phone after presenting genuine cash but when they returned
into the shops they presented the fake money.

He urged the agents to use money detection machines and carry out thorough checks of the cash being presented to them every other time
they received the cash.

“These agents deal with a lot of money and they should put up mechanisms to stop losing their cash. We are yet to discover whether
this money is coming from within or it is being brought from elsewhere,” advised OCPD.

In another case a person lost shs.25, 244/= through M-banking. He said the victim had his phone blocked and when he went to check his
account in the bank he got the account the money had been withdrawn.

“We are tracking down the money because we got the numbers where the money was sent,” said police boss.
