Controversial US-based content creator Andrew Kibe has been left in shock after he was targeted by online scammers.
Through his Twitter page, he revealed he had fallen prey to a con artist who had posed as a customer service agent of the telecommunications company, Safaricom.
Without disclosing the amount he had lost to the cons, Kibe said he suspected the scam was an inside job.
“Sema kuoshwa nikaosheka, how the scammers got my number and I had just inboxed (the company) is a mystery to me. Hapa na suspect inside job. Someone at this company is selling client information or your twitter account is fake,” he wrote.
