Officers attached to the Police Financial Crime Unit issued a reminder to the public in light of another online scam.
A spokesman urged online shoppers to “remain vigilant”, especially if asked to send wire transfers to unknown persons overseas for payment of goods not yet received.
“If the person is not selling locally or if an overseas person requests to purchase items posted on a local online classifieds website be wary, as it may not be legitimate,” he said.
“Residents should not send any monies to unknown persons before receiving the goods.”
