Detectives attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) are currently holding the chief suspect behind the infamous Amazon Web Worker scheme that has left hundreds of Kenyans fleeced millions of shillings.
Stacey Marie Parker Blake, 50, who was on her flight from the U.S, was arrested on Friday, May 28, immediately after touching down at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
According to the detectives, the suspect was being pursued following lots of complaints lodged by Kenyans against a couple of paybill accounts in her name.
Initially, Amazon Web Worker was an online App downloaded from the Google Play Store and in which potential investors would trade their monies to reap profits of up to 38% for a deposit lasting only 7 days.
To reap big, one was required to have multiple downlines and referrals who would also invest, thus coming up with a chain of investors.
Being linked with Amazon, a renowned international retailer, a handful of Kenyans fell prey to the treacheries around the app, cumulatively depositing hundreds of millions with the object of turning around their fortunes.
It, however, became the talk of town recently after the app could not be traced in the Play Store. It was also established the scheme was not in any way affiliated with Amazon.
It sunk with hundreds of millions of Kenyans, a section of whom trooped to the DCI headquarters to seek assistance. Following the multiple reports, the sleuths launched their investigations into the matter.
