City lawyer Steve Ogolla was for the better part of Sunday one of the trending topics on social media after he claimed that a lover he met on Facebook conned him Ksh500, 000.

Ogolla, in a post on Facebook, narrated how he entered into a relationship with a “woman” only identified as Dorcas Sarkozy.

In the shocking confession, Ogolla claimed that the two had been dating for a while, however, they had not met.

The money he was allegedly fleeced was meant to plan their wedding.

The “woman” had told him that the money was to cater for their wedding expenses.

Dorcas, believed to be man, received the money and went into hiding, he blocked Ogolla on Facebook.  The person uses the Pseudo account to con gullible followers.

The advocate recounts that losing such a huge amount of money nearly drove him to suicide.

“I was in a fake relationship with this ‘lady’ and she conned me in excess of 500K, planned a fake wedding and nearly drove me to suicide, ” he wrote.

He says after realizing that he had made a terrible mistake, he attempted to expose the person but “she” kept blackmailing him by sharing their private chats.

“I reported to authorities but she came back and blackmailed me by sharing my private love WhatsApp chats with her to third parties,” Ogolla added.

To many, the story is a hoax, as they didn’t believe that an intelligent lawyer like Ogalla can fall into such cheap conning schemes.

To some, hower, anything is possible in the cyberspace hence believing Ogolla’s narrative and expressing their sympathy.

Here are some of the reactions:
