February 10, 2018 8:03 pm
The increasing number of impersonation cases is becoming a major concern for the Fiji Independent Commission against Corruption.
FICAC Public Relations Officer Nandni Vandhana says just into the second month of this year, the Commission has received four complaints already.
She says that the Commission has received complaints about individuals calling members of the public claiming to be FICAC officers and demanding money or claiming to be debt collectors.
“We wish to advice members of the public that FICAC does not do this. FICAC does not collect debt on behalf of any person and do not definitely request or assist in payments of any party.”
FICAC has successfully convicted two persons so far who were pretending to be FICAC officers.
According to FICAC anyone guilty of impersonation upon conviction will be liable to a fine of up to $20,000 and one year imprisonment.
