How Kenyans are been conned by Online dating sites

During the Covid-19 Pandemic, more and more of us have turned to online dating sites – including those with video call functions. Even as lockdown restrictions start to lift, and we can meet prospective partners in the park or (soon) the pub, dating apps still have a part to play.

As the internet plays an ever greater part in our social lives, with sites such as Facebook, Snapchat, Telegram, and Twitter are helping us to keep in touch with our friends, it’s inevitable that we use it to help run our love lives as well.

Online dating and dating apps are one of the most popular ways to meet a new partner and there are more than 100 sites in Kenya alone, catering to people from all walks of life and interests.

So whether you’re mad about dogs, passionate about green issues, or a connoisseur of fine wines you’re sure to find someone who shares your interests.

However with the most emerging online dating sites in Kenya most of them are not conducting genuine business. They are there to con the Kenyans of their hardearned money in the name of providing services.

For instance, if you visit this site SexiestKenya it has good ratings of 3.9 out of 5 for over 75 reviews on Google but unfortunately, it’s purely a con business. It claims to connect Sugar mummies with young men and Sugar Daddies with young ladies which is in the real sense a big lie.

We tried to test their services since we had received several complaints from several Kenyans that they have been conned and we came to a conclusion they are cons after trying to reach for an explanation which they were not willing to give. They will ask you to send Ksh.1000/= to get reconnected but once you send the money they will keep asking you for more money.

SexiestKenya has a telegram channel of over 1600 members, a twitter account, a well designed blog but despite all that they dont do offer really genuine services. We would like to attach some photos below to prove our investigations so that you dont fall in the same trap.
