BPS WARNING: SCAM E-MAILS AND ADVERTISEMENTS CIRCULATING
The Bermuda Police Service wishes to advise the public of a scam email promoting an investment opportunity supposedly endorsed by Premier David Burt.
Premier Burt is referred to as “Prime Minister Burt” in the scam email, which invites individuals to invest in a crypto-currency opportunity, promising significant returns.
The e-mail when opened forwards the user to a fraudulent investment platform which is used to harvest credit card details.
The scam also takes the form of various advertisements on social media platforms, but more often than not, Facebook.
Members of the public are reminded to be more vigilant than usual during these difficult economic times in order to avoid falling victim to such scams, given that they are constantly changing, as those responsible continue in their effort to fleece the unsuspecting of their hard earned cash.
Any content which is considered unsuitable, unlawful, or offensive, includes personal details, advertises or promotes products, services or websites, or repeats previous comments will be removed.
