It is with a heavy heart that we Announce the death of Bishop Dr. Josiah Thuku Kambutu on Thursday, June 1st, 2017. Dr. Josiah Thuku was born on December 13th, 1953 in Nairobi, Kenya. He was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in September 2016 and continued treatments until his passing.

Kenyans in US fall victim to phishing attacks by Sendwave impersonators, lose thousands of dollars

Published

on

BY BMJ MURIITHI

Impersonators posing as genuine employees of SendWave.com, the popular online money Transfer platform, are sending out emails to unsuspecting customers asking them to update their their account information.

 

Many Kenyans living in the United States have been targeted by the scammers.

 

Sendwave is operated by Chime Inc. and is authorized to transmit money in the US, Canada, the UK and the EU.

 

On Thursday, SendWave administrators confirmed to Kenya Satellite News Network that the emails did not emanate from them and appealed to their customers “not to update their account information as they are going to lose their money.”

 

“Those emails are not from us. Any email from Sendwave must have @sendwave as a handle. Please don’t open them,” the spokesperson said.

Irene Wanjiru Maina, an Atlanta-based Kenyan who regularly uses Sendwave to send money to her family back home said he was amazed by how credible the “fake” landing page.

 

“When you click on the link, it takes you to a landing page which looks almost identical to the genuine Sendwave landing page,” she said.

“I just hope no one has fallen victim,” she added.

However, two other  customers who did not wish to disclose their identity confirmed to ksnmedia.com that they had fallen victim and their accounts had been compromised.

 

Here is how the fake landing page looks:

Can you spot the difference?
Below are samples of some of the emails received by Sendwave customers:

Wave only allows you to transfer money via their dedicated smartphone application, available for both Apple and Android phones. Customers in the US, the UK and Canada can send money, and current receiving countries include Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda. Although the range of sending and receiving countries is limited, Wave are planning to introduce money transfer services to more countries as the company grows.

Wave does not charge fees to use its money transfer services and instead makes a profit by offering a worse exchange rate than the base rate. This rate varies between being around 1.5 percent and five percent lower. This can make them more expensive than other providers for certain money transfer needs, so it’s worth comparing.

You can only send money from a debit card linked to a bank account in the US, the UK, Canada or another country approved by Wave. The mobile application can be used anywhere in the world, as long as the payment comes from a bank account approved by Wave.

You cannot use a credit card, PayPal or a direct bank transfer to fund currency exchanges. We did find a couple of references on the Wave website to sending funds to the beneficiary’s bank account, but couldn’t find further details. It looks like they mainly offer to transfer funds to the beneficiary’s mobile wallet, which would explain why the transfers are so fast.

There are limits to how much money people can send. You can initially transfer a maximum of $999/£750/€750 per day and $2,999/£2,500/€2,500 per month.

These limits can be raised to $2,999/£2,500/€2,500 per day and $12,000/£10,000/€10,000 per month if Wave receives proof of identity in the form of a photographic ID.
