Investigators say the group deceived their victim; An American of Kenyan descent known only as Wallace had won a bid to distribute Eloxatin, a drug used to treat stage 2 gastrointestinal cancer.
The fraudulent business started when a fraudulent artist from Nairobi was introduced to Wallace via a WhatsApp group of Kenyans living in the United States.
A fraudster who pretends to be a wheelchair trader in the UNOPS system, with links to support the delivery of goods and services, will later introduce Wallace to a senior procurement officer working in an agency identified as Leah Wanjiru.
The two (Wallace and Leah) would later meet at the TRM Mall along Thika Road for coffee to inform Wallace about the UNOPS distribution system.
Leah began to take action with the logistics portal and ask her to register and at the time, Wallace was convinced beyond a doubt that Leah was real since, after all, she had entered the shopping center in a car with diplomatic licenses.

However, he warned her that UNOPS only accepted medication from authorized pharmacists in Kenya and referred her to a doctor known as Moses Otieno.

He withdrew Ksh 20 million from his bank account and transferred the money to Dr Otieno for a second delivery and invited a lawyer to attend the second operation.
At this point, he was still waiting for payment, but the purchasing agent asked him to wait another 14 days while filling the remaining 500 bowls.
“After 14 days the counters went down and Wallace’s efforts to knock them down were in vain. Their calls went unanswered. By the time Wallace arrived at our headquarters, he had lost more than Ksh 30 million to fraudsters, ”part of a DCI statement said.
