Police told of fake social-media accounts featuring Premier

Fake accounts featuring David Burt, the Premier, promoting an investment opportunity are being circulated in social media, the Government said yesterday.

A spokeswoman for the Cabinet Office warned the public to be wary of the accounts, which appeared on Facebook and Instagram.

She said that the scam attempted to defraud money from those who visit the sites.

The spokeswoman explained: “The Premier’s social-media accounts are verified accounts. Anything other than these official platforms are fake.

“Individuals are encouraged to remain vigilant while online. Do not click the links provided.

“Persons should report the accounts to the platforms’ social-media administrators if they encounter them.”

The Bermuda Police Service were notified.
