Officers from the RCIPS Financial
Crime Unit are once again warning the public not to give out bank information
via e-mail, after a scam relating to payment for the shipment of puppies began
circulating on the islands.
The e-mail claims to be from a man
who states that he wants to give away two Maltese pups. The man asks for money
to be sent to Africa to cover the shipment.
The unsolicited e-mail asks the
recipient for his/ her bank details – and officers from the Unit are urging people
not give out those details.
If people have concerns about any
e-mail communication which asks for personal and banking details they should
contact the Financial Crime Unit on 949-8797.
