So there are gold scammers, then there are land scammers. And boy are they good. Here’s how it works
They have connections, at Ardhi House. They walk in and out as if they own the place. They can access nearly every space in the building that regular employees can
The cons get clerical staff at the ministry identify land that hasn’t had any transactional activity in recent times, they make the original files disappear and then create skeleton files
It is these skeleton files that are now used to divest the original owners of the ownership to the land, to entirely new people who pay top dollar.
Then they get a registrar to effect the transfer, that is, sign the new title deed and voila! land no longer belongs to you anymore but to someone else
Here is one such con. Very good at what they do. They live good lives, but you can pinpoint exactly what they do. They have no offices
In the unfortunate event that the registrars who assist them get caught, it the cons that are usually at the forefront to mobilize for contributions for their bail money
