The Fiji Police Force is calling on social media users to be mindful of posts regarding flats for rent on social media.

This comes as a group of people are using the same photos of available flats in multiple different posts.

The Cybercrime Unit is advising social media users not to commit to any exchange of money online with the person claiming to be the landlord.
