British High Commission receives a high volume of scam or fraud-related enquiries, which most are targeted through Facebook, internet chat rooms and on-line dating agencies. Be careful with who you meet online and do not send money to any persons you have met on the internet (but have never met in person).


Typical scenarios of scams may include:

  • Accidents and hospitalisation, and request of payment before treatment
  • Non-payment of salary or tax rebate
  • Detention at customs or immigration, for large sums of money
  • Employment offers in the UK
  • Parcels, packages or money transfers to British High Commission

 Report the matter to your local police for further action.
