Appliances Sales has been mentioned by several people as a scam. They have a website called applianceske.com which they market through their various Facebook pages. They have several pages, all of which redirect to their website.
the company, said to be run by Edwin Sifuna Ndolo, scammed Kenyans over 2million shillings before shutting down its store on Waiyaki Way. The company, which had been receiving payments from clients for over 6 months but did not deliver the goods, also switched off their mobile phones and shut down its website, www.appliances.co.ke.
The company, said to have been in operation for over 3 years, claimed there were delays occasioned by theft of the goods: “The current backlog in deliveries has been occasioned by internal security lapse that saw an assortment of goods stolen. The same is under investigation and has been reported at Kabete Police Station under OB 94/04/12/19.”
