Police arrest Nigerian, Cameroonian in USD 693 million fake money scheme

18 January 2016, 22:54

Nairobi - Kenyan Police have arrested two men believed to be behind a fake money scheme in Nairobi, estimated to be worth as much as USD 693 million.

Capital News reported that the two men were hiding in a house along Mombasa Road and that they were busted after a tip off from a member of the public.

Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett said that the two were a part of an international money laundering scheme and warned those engaging in the activities that their days are numbered.

" We came by this huge haul based on a tip-off by a member of the public that an individual had been conned of a KES 40 million purportedly in exchange of US dollars and Euros that had been shipped in from Syria. The subsequent police operation led to the discovery of 693 million dollars in fake currency,” he said in the report.
