(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) — Several people who were looking for jobs at Christmas were instead scammed of thousands of dollars.

In December, several people who are members of a WhatsApp group were falsely told they would be employed as riggers at an energy company if they wired $3,000 to a Western Union account.

Upon paying the money, the victims were told to attend an orientation programme scheduled for January 8, this past Tuesday.

However, when they showed up for the orientation, they were told it had been cancelled, police said.
