Beware conmen using my name: millionaire witchdoctor
Witchdoctor Annah Mutheu has cautioned Kenyans against conmen using her name.
The conmen have opened fake facebook accounts that bear Ms. Mutheu’s names and photos on the pretense that they have been authorized to operate with her names on the internet.
Ms. Mutheu argued that unsuspecting members of the public were urged to send their numbers and identity details in order to book an appointment with the doctor.
“It has come to my attention that there are people who are claiming to be associated with me and I wish to distance myself from those scammers.” She said, adding that “I do not ask people to send money to me via phone.”
Speaking to The Nairobian on phone, she warned members of the public not to give their numbers to the conmen saying that the numbers provided on the social media are not hers.
“People are being preyed on the internet by people using my name. Those are fake accounts and I have reported to the relevant authorities.” She said.
Mutheu, who prefers to be called ‘Boss lady’, asked people who have fallen victim to get in contact with her for further action.
In 2018 Mutheu and another person were arrested for allegedly being involved in a car theft syndicate but later they were set free by a Nairobi court after the prosecution failed to produce evidence linking them to theft.
