Three people, who police suspect to be part of an organised criminal gang that has been defrauding the public through online transactions, have been arrested.
Police said the three, Isaac Njoroge, Dennis Mugambi Kamwara and Brenda Watetu Kamau, were arrested on Sunday in Kasarani, Nairobi.
The three are said to have been involved in a fake fish supplements business.
“Following increased reports of fraud involving a fake fish supplements business where unsuspecting victims are lured into the venture, three suspects were today arrested by DCI Lang’ata detectives within Roysambu in Kasarani where unsuspecting victims are lured into the venture,” a statement from DCI reads in part.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the three are part of a syndicate, whose operations are conducted under pseudo names using different phone numbers.
