Unfortunately, no insurance company covers for theft of cash as there is no way for one to prove that the cash was there in the first place.
Insurers won’t cover you for any of the following:
- Traveller’s cheques
- Travel tickets
- Postal and money orders
- Promissory notes
- Gift vouchers
- Coins, or
We encourage the following:
- Don’t store large amounts of cash at home. You can’t claim from insurance.
- If you’re a businessman, take out money insurance – or bank it same day.
Please note that we will be unable to proceed with any form of internal processes without a case number validating the incident (this includes deactivation of the SweepStar). It is imperative, from a legal point, that this is provided and we always firmly encourage clients to ensure that this step is followed to allow SweepSouth to take necessary measures.
Our background checks are carried out in accordance with the Kenyan standard. We even receive data if they have ever been charged with a crime. We would never permit a worker to be activated on our platform with any criminal history.
In order to become a SweepStar, all applicants are required to provide proof of their valid National ID and valid bank details as well as a valid Certificate of Good Conduct (issued by the government). This Certificate of Good Conduct is handed to Peleza who verifies that the certificate is valid and that the individual has no criminal record.
Peleza specialises in Background Checks using official and reliable national and international data sources to screen candidates while complying with any privacy legislation in force.
All applicants are also required to have at least 2 years' working experience or a relevant certificate coupled with at least 2 contactable references. Contact is made with all references to ensure these individuals can vouch for the SweepStar.
