It was another case of learning how to run with the hares and how to hunt with the hounds.
A Facebook fraudster who had been having a field day conning unsuspecting online users by impersonating an MP has been exposed by the COUNTY DIARY Investigation Team.
This time, he barked the wrong tree, or chewed more than he could possibly swallow.
The fraudster has been impersonating Mwingi North MP Hon. Eng. Paul Nzengu on Facebook and uses a Safaricom number 0715645084.
Our online investigation was aided by one Patrick Mwendwa, the World Youth Parliament who was promised by the quick talking conman that if he parted with 600, two tanks will be delivered to his home in Waita.
But before the target could swallow the hook, bait and sinker, we jumped in and the scene got murkier.
“It was a clearly a case of cyber crime.We confirmed to Patrick Mwendwa that the cellphone number that the fraudster claimed that belonged to Malili was not the MPs personal number, which we are privy to” said Wiper leading blogger Patrick Kimanzi who happens to be MP Mulyungi who has been impersonated by scammers in recent times.
He the Ping Pong between the Target and the conman.
