The Itaukei Land trust board in Lautoka has revealed that a person by the name of “Nazo” has been visiting some places in the west claiming to be a staff member of TLTB in Lautoka.
In a statement this afternoon, the TLTB says the fraudulent dealer is a woman and “Nazo” may not even be her real name.
The TLTB adds the woman recently visited residents of Tavakubu settlement and Kashmir, Lautoka requesting residents to fill the TLTB lease application forms with a fee of $57.50 to lease Itaukei land.
The public is advised that TLTB officers carrying out work on the field must have proper ID cards, all lease applications and land dealings on iTaukei land must involve TLTB, all payments should be made with any TLTB cashier and official TLTB receipts must be issued for any payments made.
The TLTB says “Nazo” has been involved in a number of fraudulent activities recently and the matter has been reported to FICAC for investigation.
The public is advised to report to TLTB, FICAC or Police if they come in contact with “Nazo”.
