Residents are once again urged to ignore persistent social media messages from unknown individuals impersonating Government Ministers.
One of the latest examples is a fake social media profile – bearing the likeness of Deputy Premier and Minister of Home Affairs the Hon. Walter Roban – sending harassing messages to locals claiming “The U.N. is willing to give every individual at least $30,000 against the pandemic … We have our personal agent in charge of the grant cash. I can send you his link so you can text him and claim yours.”
Such messages are not legitimate and should not be responded to.
