UN issues fraud alert

Must read

Perhaps overwhelmed by the con-artistry ravaging the country, the United Nations (UN) System in Uganda has issued a fraud alert, asking people to be on the lookout for criminals posing as UN staff.

According to the UN, represented by 20 agencies in Uganda, some of the fraudsters solicit for money from unsuspecting people ostensibly to get them jobs and tenders, among other things.

‘The public is warned against fraudsters posing as United Nations staff members attempting to solicit money and other material benefits in exchange for jobs, tenders, food, international seminars and other benefits. Some of these fraudsters use forged identity cards or fake email addresses similar to those of UN agencies, conduct fake job interviews, offer fake letters of employment; and use forged contracts in an attempt to obtain goods and services. These scams are criminal offences that must be reported to government authorities immediately,’ a release by the UN indicates in part.
