The Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF) has warned that people trying to receive money by means of deception will be prosecuted.

Police received reports from various business places and organisations that people purporting to be officials from the Ministry of Health and authorised by the Minister of Health have been asking for monetary donations to assist people affected by coronavirus COVID-19.

In a press release, police advised people who are confronted with these requests to first verify the authenticity of individuals by seeking their names, formal identification and contact details. They should also verify that information with authorities.
