Politician Karen Nyamu has complained over a fake account that uses her name on social media.

Through her Instagram, the mother of three called upon her fans to help her counter the con and hopefully get verified on her social media platforms.

"What I’m I doing wrong every time I have applied to have my account verified the request is declined. Any verification consultants out there? For Facebook especially. There’s a conman thriving with my name," she wrote.

Karen's official Facebook page has over 250k followers. There are several other accounts using her names, some with even over 10k followers.

Karen Nyamu is not the first celebrity to complain about her name being used to even solicit money from people on social media.

A while ago, Vera Sidika said she does not own a Facebook account but an account with over 100k is using her names on social media.

In another incident, Gukena FM's Njoki Wa Mburu recently said a fan had been conned by a user claiming to be her.

She called on her fans to be careful on which social media page they follow before sending any coin.
