“I had been awake until 3 am on that particular day,” explained Omondi. “Then I got a notice that a hundred US dollars (about Sh10,000) had been transferred from my account to an entity known as ‘MV Productions’, I immediately alerted my bank and it (consequent online transactions) was blocked.”

It did not end there the fraudster kept trying.

“Soon after, I received a separate alert that someone had unsuccessfully tried to transfer $150 (about Sh15,000) from another account. Worse, later on, I unsuccessfully attempted to withdraw money from an ATM machine and my card got stuck. Later on, someone tried to withdraw cash from that account.”
