Woman from Nairobi Conned, Left Stranded in Mombasa After Travelling to Meet Facebook Lover

A Nairobi woman is counting her losses after a man she met on Facebook left her stranded when she went to meet him at Likoni Police station.

Sara Wangui had travelled to Mombasa with her 4 year old son to meet a man she had been chatting with on Facebook for a month. According to Sara, the man, who claimed to be called Tom,had told her he is a police officer stationed at Likoni Police Station.

Upon arriving at the Police station, a person who Tom had introduced as his friend arrived and tried to convince her to go with him. However, the woman refused, on account that the ‘friend’ was shabby, a contradiction from the person she had in mind.

During their month-long affair, Sara had also sent Tom a total of Sh85,000 which he had said was for constructing rental units. She says she is ready to go back home but would like to confront Yom about her money.

“I want to go back home, but l need to see him face to face and ask him how l would get a refund of my money now that l have realized he is not a police officer at Likoni police station and that the photo he has been using on social media is of an officer attached in Garissa,” she said.
