Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party Communication Director Philip Etale took on Twitter to expose how conmen defraud unsuspecting Kenyans.
In the image he shared, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was about to be dragged into the fake Gold scam but luckily, he realized on time.
A gold operative had asked Raila while in Dubai to help him release a consignment of gold from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. He had saved CS Fred Matiang'i's purported number whom he wanted Raila to talk to.
"When Raila was in Dubai a few weeks back, this operative went to his hotel and asked him to help secure the release of gold at JKIA.
"He then called a number saved in his phone as CS Matiangi and handed it to Raila. But Raila quickly realized that it wasn't Matiangi on the line and returned the phone to the owner," reads an image Etale posted on his twitter.
Etale wanted the public to be aware of the fake number trick that conmen use to lure unsuspecting individuals.
"What conmen/scammers do to con unsuspecting businessmen and leaders of billions of money... So the characters have saved fake numbers on phones with the names of powerful individuals to use it as an avenue to CON People! This is serious. Brand new second-hand ideas...," reads a tweet by Etale.
