(CMR) The public is reminded to remain alert and vigilant when interacting on social media.
Reports have emerged of a fake account claiming to be from Minister Tara Rivers approaching members of the public about a cash incentive.
The information contained in the message is incorrect and poses a potential risk to individuals who engage.
The public is reminded to look to official sources for information on government financial support.
It is a crime to produce and share disinformation in the Cayman Islands. The matter has been shared with the Chief Information Security Officer for the Cayman Islands Government for investigation.
CMR received reports of the fake account a few days ago as well. A good clue that this is a fake account is the phone number linked to it. As an added security measure Facebook has introduced that option some years ago.
