The Police have arrested a woman who has been scheming clients' money via the mobile money service.
Hadijja Nakitende, 37, a resident of Kawempe, who works with a top telecom company, had robbed over 200 mobile money operators and the Police at Kaleerwe had been hunting for her following series of complaints.
Hadijja is said to have been manipulating the system after looking through records and picking on her victims who have a lot of balance on their accounts. She would then call the operator and ask them to send her a certain amount, and would then send back 'air' using the system, only for them to realize later that no money had been sent.
In her defence, however, she pleaded for forgiveness and said she was also taught how to cheat people after she was robbed when she used to operate a mobile money account.
She was charged with different counts of fraud under file numbers SD REF 16/10/12/12/2012, SD REF 17/10/12/2012, SD REF 19/10/12/2012.
