Police Offer Fraud Prevention Tips

The Financial Crimes Unit (FCU) of the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) is stepping up efforts to alert the public to the threat of financial crimes by offering crime and fraud prevention tips on Tuesday, 16 December.

Between 10:00am and 1:00pm, FCU officers will be manning an information desk that will be located outside Scotia Bank on Edward Street, Georgetown.

This initiative comes in the wake of various financial scams that have been circulating the community, particularly in the run-up to the Christmas season.

Detective Sergeant Michael Montaque said, "Members of the public are encouraged to stop by and speak with the officers who will be able to respond to questions about fraudulent crime. Individuals will also be able to receive advice on how to avoid becoming victims of such crimes."

Anyone who has been a victim of fraud should contact their local police station or the FCU on 949-8797.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling crime stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
