In a recent scam, a group of men posing as businessmen and traders issued dishonoured cheques for the supply of goods.

A report was received by police early this month whereby a trade was organized via Viber for the purchase of tyres to be delivered to Navua.

The suspects who would trade under the guise of well-known companies would then pose as homeowners of a house up for rent where they would have the goods delivered.

The first report received involved the exchange of more than $16,000.

Similar transactions were carried out in the Western Division.
