Friday May 10, 2019 - Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), George Kinoti, has sent a communiqué to all foreign Embassies in Kenya urging them to advise their nationals over increased incidents of fake gold scams in the country.

The DCI, who also shared the information on social media, urged Embassies to warn their citizens travelling into the country with an intention to buy gold.

He went ahead to advise the business people to consult with the Department of Mines and Geology to avoid being duped.

“We urge the Embassies (High Commissions) to advise their nationals coming in for business to be apprised of con business of gold going on in the country and first contact the Department of Mines and Geology for a procedure that pertains to buying &selling of Gold & other Precious metals,” the DCI stated.

Kinoti‘s warning comes at a time when several foreigners have been arrested in the country with fake currencies and gold.
