Advance Fee Fraud 

Have you been promised money?
The Financial Surveillance Department has, over the past few years, been inundated with requests and calls for assistance from people who have fallen victim to criminal elements operating 'Advance Fee Fraud' type scams, commonly known as ‘419’ or 'Nigerian letter' scams. This has lead to a public awareness initiative aimed at warning the general public about the perils of such schemes.
For more information on these types of scams, kindly refer to the linked document under the heading, 'Additional Information'.
