Facebook warning from St Lucia PM


Share post:

CASTRIES – Prime Minister Allen Chastanet yesterday alerted St Lucians to a fake Facebook profile created in his name, and cautioned against falling prey to these attempts at fraud.

“Fellow Saint Lucians, please be aware that there is currently another impersonator Facebook profile in my name, which has been directly messaging social media users offering grants and other types of financial opportunities,” Chastanet wrote on his official Facebook page.

“They use the names of credible organisations such as the United Nations to give credibility to their requests. I am begging you to please ignore and report these profiles when you receive such messages,” he said.

The prime minister noted that several other ministers were also facing the same challenge, including Education Minister Dr Gale Rigobert, Community Development Minister Lenard “Spider” Montoute and Tourism Minister Dominic Fedee.(CMC)
