KAMPALA. Police in Kampala have arrested a man claiming to be an employee of a recruitment agency taking people for work in China for allegedly conning millions of shillings from unsuspecting clients.
This comes after over 13 reports of obtaining money by false pretense were reported against a suspect identified as Nasser Seremba accusing him of conning his unsuspecting clients' sums of money to a tune of Shs58 million promising to help them acquire handsomely paying jobs abroad.
“It's believed that the suspect would, after receiving money, issue fake receipts, process fake passports, visas and would later disappear,” Police said in a statement on Thursday.
The investigators say Seremba would narrate to his unsuspecting clients China stories, experiences and had promised over 13 graduates English teaching jobs through his rich connections as soon as they arrived in China.
Seremba is charged with human trafficking and obtaining money by false pretense and operating a recruitment agency without a license.
The suspect is currently detained at Old Kampala Police Station vide SD REF. 63/25/06/2018.
“We implore Ugandans seeking to work abroad to verify through Uganda Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development so as to get connected with companies and individuals licensed to export labour. This helps avoid risks of getting exploited,” Police said.
