A man in Kenya has reportedly been arrested for pretending to be a woman and fleecing unsuspecting men of their money.
On Monday September 13 a man Godfrey Owino reported that Justin Kioko had received from him a staggering sh 344,000 ( GH¢18,873.09 ) while pretending to be a lady supposed to take a flight from Coastal Kilifi County to Siaya for a date.
“The 31 year old allegedly received the money via ‘MOMO’ from Godfrey Owino who he says they had planned for “her” to travel from Kilifi to Siaya county,” a report read in part.
Mr. Owino revealed that the cash was supposed to cover a two way flight ticket but the con man made away with the cash after switching off.
