Impersonating Safaricom staff
A fraudster pretends to be a Safaricom employee or customer care agent with the aim of defrauding the customer. Fraudsters often call the customer from a personal line. In a number of these calls, fraudsters already know the targeted customer by name and other personal identifiers collected from various sources or unconsciously provided by the customer while on the call.
