Fake bank notes top list of fraud in Kenya
Counterfeit bank notes are the most common form of fraud in Kenya, with mobile money and bank agents being the key targets.  A nationwide survey released recently by the Central Bank of Kenya shows that mobile money agents, who largely consist of M-Pesa agents, had 24,562 cases of counterfeit notes, which is 97 per cent of the fraud cases they face.  Bank agents reported 1,297 cases of fraud out of which 75 per cent involved counterfeit notes.  The six-month survey conducted in 2015 whose findings were released last week by the Central Bank of Kenya, captured 27,196 cases of fraud.  The Central Bank has, however, been reporting that the crime is on the decrease due to the lower number of counterfeit notes submitted to it.
