DCI Arrests Notorious Fraudster in Nairobi

Attempts by a notorious fraudster to obtain millions of shillings fraudulently were cut short by serious crimes detectives after they pounced on the con selling an apartment that did not belong to him.

Hussein Fakhruddin Mohammedbhai was arrested minutes before he inked a deal to obtain millions of shillings without breaking a sweat, by selling an apartment in Nairobi’s upmarket Westlands suburbs.

The 3-bedroom all ensuite apartment worth over Sh40 million at the prevailing market rate was being disposed at a paltry Sh11 Million.

Forensic document examination and handwriting experts based at the DCI National Forensic Laboratory established that Mohammedbhai had forged a title deed certificate for the property and entered into a deal with a real estate company to dispose of the property on his behalf.

Luckily, the property’s owner got wind of the dubious deal and contacted serious crimes detectives through the #FichuakwaDCI Hotline.

Upon further investigations, it was established that the suspect is a serial fraudster who had earlier obtained close to Sh9 million, in a similar scheme.

Mohammedbhai is currently in custody for the offense of obtaining money by false pretenses and shall take a plea at the Kiambu Law Courts, on Friday, March 18, 2022.

Any person who may have been defrauded by the suspect (whose image is attached) is urged to report to DCI’s Serious Crimes unit.
