Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis Dr. the Hon. Timothy Harris is advising members of the general public to be on the alert about fake Facebook and social media accounts in circulation.
In a release Prime Minister Harris says that “these sites may look genuine, but they are not.”
The release went on to add and I quote “These fake sites may use the Prime Minister’s photo and name, but their only intention is to spread misinformation through false and scandalous information.
Some of these pages are scams and will attempt to dupe you out of money. Do not trust them.”
According to the release these fake sites and pages may use the “Prime Minister’s photo and name, but their only intention is to spread misinformation through false and scandalous information.
Prime Minister Harris’ real social media accounts can be found on Facebook and Twitter by searching for his official handle, which is @pmharriskn.
Individuals are asked to report fake social media accounts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Persons are also asked to be aware and be on the alert that if the person claiming to be either the Prime Minister or another government official asks for money through Instant Messenger, Direct Message or any other means, this is a scam and not a real charity.
