Post a Fraud Alert:

The ROP tweeted on Sunday that the arrests were made by the Criminal Investigations Department.

The accused would trick the victims into divulging their credit card details by sending them a fake bank text message. The scam message would direct the victims to follow a link to prevent blocking of their credit cards and in the process obtain all personal and card details.

The ROP has warned citizens and residents to be cautious of such scams and avoid replying or clicking on any link or attachments.
