Notably, one of the reports has been referred by the Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission.

ACP Waqa has noted that the majority of the victims had joined EbayShop in the latter part of last month and encountered difficulties in making withdrawals.

Given the complex nature of cybercrime, the investigation is expected to be time-consuming.

He further mentions that the task force is collaborating with the FCCC and the Fiji Financial Intelligence Unit as they delve into this matter.
