RSVGPF investigating reports of fake job offers
The Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force is investigating numerous reports of what appears to be ‘fake job offers’.
Based on the investigations, there is an individual or individuals who have been approaching young females and telling them that there is a “lady” who is seeking to employ females between the ages of 17 and 22 to work as housekeepers, bartenders and nannies for “movie stars” in the Grenadines for a salary between EC$1500 to EC$1800.
“The individual(s) would give the young ladies a cellular number to call if they are interested in obtaining the job. Whenever a call is made to that number, an individual purporting to be a female answers and invite the young ladies to an interview somewhere in Villa. The young ladies are encouraged to dress “sexy” for the interview. Several young ladies have been persistently receiving these calls on a regular basis – day and night,” the release from the police said.
“The general public is strongly advised not to entertain calls of this nature from anyone. This is a bogus scam by the individual (s) to possibly lure the vulnerable and innocent into exploitative situations. The public is further advised to promptly notify the police if and whenever they are in receipt of such calls.”
