Renowned Kenyan artist Vivian has exposed a scam company dubbed ‘CoinFrex’ which has allegedly been using her name to con Kenyans.
Taking to her Instagram stories, Vivian posted Instagram messages from one of her fans who had been allegedly conned by the company. In the messages, the fan stated that she had been scammed lots of money by the company adding that the company uses Vivian’s name to convince people.
“I invested with this company and I was scammed so much money. Yet they are using Vivianne to convince people. Yet they are scamming people their money innocently I can’t even begin to describe my situation it’s horrific. Please ask Vivianne to warn her follower’s audience and also if she can call them out. Thanks,” she wrote.
Replying to the fan, Vivian thanked her for the information and posted: “#Conalert#Beware. Thanks for @ms.dee_andatidaisy bringing this to my attention,” she replied.
In addition to that story, she also put up another Insta story exposing the advert from the company which was promising people that once they invested $500 they would gain $1500 in 48hrs trading bitcoin.
“Invest $500 earn$1500 in 48hrs trading bitcoin. Interested in bitcoin investment trading whereby you invest bitcoin worth $500 and earn $1500 profits after 48hrs of complete trading?www.coinfrex.com. For more details follow @David Flex or Whatsapp number +254715146136,” the advert read.
This is not the first case of an artists’s name being used to defraud unsuspecting Kenyans. In March, Mejja blasted a fake WhatsApp profile that had been purporting to be him.
Posting a screenshot of the number with a WhatsApp profile that has his name, Mejja asked his fans to be careful and request a face-to-face meeting when conducting any official business.
