From lottery to farm work scamming

June 22, 2016

A spokesperson for the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) said lottery scammers may be the ones collecting money from members of the public, promising placement in the Overseas Employment  (farm work) Programmes to the United States and Canada.

Since we have been working hard to curve lottery scamming, you'll find persons turn to this type of scam," said Corporal Kevin Watson, in an interview with THE STAR yesterday.

Watson told the THE STAR that the Fraud Squad had put several people before the court for this kind of offence, adding that persons continously fall victims of farm work fraud because they are not aware of how the programme works.

The Ministry of Labour and Social Security this week placed advertisements in the print media reminding the public that participation in the overseas employment programme is free of charge.
