Police’s Crime Investigation Department (CID) has warned the general public on fraudsters issuing fake visas to members of the public.
“The general public is hereby informed that there is a group of fraudster issuing fake Swedish Visas to unsuspecting members of the public,” said CID Spokesperson Twiine Charles in a statement released on Tuesday.
Twiine said the fraudsters obtain money from the victims and in turn promise to process and issue them with Swedish Visas and work permits.
“Police has so far received a number of complaints from various victims, and we have commenced investigations into the matter under CID headquarters GEF 1180/2020,” he said
He added that the culprits have been identified, profiled and efforts are underway to ensure they are arrested and brought to book.
“We appeal to the public to be on a look out and report any person suspected to be involved in such fraudulent tractions to CID headquarters,” Twiine added
