Security has arrested socialite Isaac Nduhukire Nasser alias Don Nasser Izo for allegedly conning over 30 billion shillings from different business people.
Don Nasser was picked hiding in ceiling by the time of his arrest. It is alleged that he conned over $10m this year from different people.
Among them included a one Johnny Hill, an American who says he sealed a deal with Nasser that required him to supply 75kg of raw gold at $1.5m (approximately UGX 5.5Billion). Nasser disappeared with the money which forced Hill to hire Interpol to look for him.
“I came to Kampala on February 19 with Massy Mastula, my girlfriend and met Don Izo (Nasser) who told me that he had a connection with gold mines, we talked about it and became partners in business. Nasser told me that the suppliers had given him 72Kgs of gold to sell at market price..Nasser told me that taxes and workers had to be paid, taxes alone were 525,000 dollars. I went to my bank account, messed up my credit card, took a personal loan and sent money through Western Union and I gave him $280,000 cash money,” Hill said.
Hill also supplied copies as evidence to show how transferred money to Don Izo. He added that he has opened up a case of fraud against him.
Hill becomes the third victim to conned by Nasser and joins a Dubai businesswoman who cried foul after losing over $5.5M (nearly 18.8 Billion Uganda Shillings) in a similar scam orchestrated by the self-proclaimed Don and another Ugandan lady who also lost USD 360,000 (nearly 1.3 Billion Uganda Shillings).
Don Nasser is known in town for splashing money and driving expensive rides. He dated tycoon Mutaasa Kaferro’s daughter, a one Mastulla Kafeero and the two departed bitterly due to alleged infidelity and alcoholism from the Mastulla.
