Prankster-turned-victim: Nicki Bigfish scammed after offering a helping hand
Nicki Bigfish dragged the man who identified himself as Chrispus Nguyo to the Central Police Station as he pleaded with him to resolve things without involving authorities
Nicki Bigfish had initially reached out to the man, intending to extend his help even further. However, when the man refused to answer his calls, Bigfish grew suspicious and decided to investigate further.
To uncover the truth, Bigfish decided to use a different phone number and posed as a potential donor who had been deeply moved by the man's story and wanted to contribute food items.
"The guy doesn't have any wife or kids. He refused to answer my calls completely, so I had to use a different number and posed as a donor who's been touched by his story and would like to donate some foodstuff," Bigfish explained.
Bigfish said the man had swindled people who had reached out to offer help which forced him to take action.
Upon discovering the man's deception, a furious Bigfish dragged him to the Central Police Station amid calls from the man to resolve things peacefully without involving authorities.
Furthermore, Bigfish managed to prove that the man had fabricated his story, as his attempts to call the man's supposed wife went unanswered. When someone finally answered the call, they clarified that she was not his wife.
How Nicki Bigfish met the man who ended up swindling him
It all started as a light-hearted prank for Nicki Bigfish in Nairobi's city centre.
Bigfish decided to prank Chrispus, asking him why he hadn't tried his luck with gambling, especially when it seemed like his friends were striking it rich.
The initial exchange was filled with laughter, but it quickly took a serious turn as Chrispus decided to open up about his challenging situation.
Chrispus Nguyo, hailing from Nyeri, had come to Nairobi in search of employment, hoping to provide for his wife and three children.
However, the city had proven to be unforgiving, and he found himself on the brink of returning to his village, his dreams of a better life in jeopardy.
Adding to his woes, Chrispus had lost his national identity card, a crucial document needed for job applications.
Although he was in the process of replacing it, the loss had made securing employment even more difficult.
Moved by Chrispus's story, Nicki Bigfish decided to lend a helping hand. He took Chrispus to a nearby supermarket and purchased essential groceries that would sustain him and his family for a week or two while he continued his job search.
Nicki Bigfish didn't stop there, he reached out to his followers, asking if anyone had a job opportunity for Chrispus or any other way they could assist him.
"Normally I don’t like posting such videos, we encounter situations like these during our shoots and try to help where we can. I’ve posted Bwana Chrispus ndio kama kuna anyone with a job opening anaeza reach out at least aweze kulisha familia," Nicki Bigfish wrote on his Instagram.
The heartwarming video of this unexpected encounter garnered praise and support from fans and celebrities alike. It serves as a reminder that acts of kindness can emerge from the most unexpected situations.
