Public Warned of WhatsApp Hoax, 18 February

18th February, 2020 Police Headlines

The RCIPS is aware of a hoax message being circulated via WhatsApp which claims that persons are posing as officials from the “Department of Home Affairs” in order to gain access to homes and commit robberies.

The RCIPS has received no reports of any such incidents. The same message was circulated via WhatsApp in October 2019, also with no confirmed reports, and confirmed to be a hoax that had originated internationally.

Persons receiving it should refrain from further circulating the fraudulent warning.
