Find the prime minister’s statement below:
“Fellow Saint Lucians, Please be aware that there is currently another impersonator Facebook profile in my name which has been directly messaging social media users offering grants and other types of financial opportunities. They use the names of credible organizations such as the United Nations to give credibility to their requests.
“I am begging you to please ignore and report these profiles when you receive such messages. Several other ministers are also facing the same challenge including Hon. Dr. Gale Rigobert, Hon. Lenard Montoute and Hon. Dominic Fedee.
“Again I beg you, please do not entertain these fake profiles or worse please do not send them any financial resources or copies of your personal documents. We are working to resolve the issue. Thank you for your understanding.”
