Charlene Ruto raises caution over impersonator scamming Kenyans
Charlene Ruto, President William Ruto’s daughter, has cautioned Kenyans to be wary of scammers posing to offer jobs using her name.
Charlene wrote on her official Twitter account that a lady informed her that her impersonator was offering ‘fake’ jobs to unsuspecting victims.
Victims were persuaded to send money and meet at Weston Hotel.
“Enough is enough! I have had enough! Met a young lady by the name Mercyline this morning who informed me that she was asked by someone purporting to be me on social media that she would get a job if she sent money to them and to meet them at Weston Hotel,even through WhatsApp,” Charlene said.
Charlene advised that the account was fake and she would not accept payment for such solicitations.
‘I would never ask for money from anyone to give them a job, or to meet them, or give them anything for that matter,” Charlene said.
She went on to say that her parents, President Ruto and First Lady Rachel Ruto, were working tirelessly to ensure equal opportunities for all Kenyans.
Charlene, who has a modest profile on social media, has been dealing with a slew of fake accounts.
Following a public outcry, Charlene was behind the suspension of a Twitter account with over 142,000 followers in August of this year after reporting it to Twitter for impersonation.
