Fake Immigration officer charged over Mpaisa scam

A 39-year-old woman will be produced at the Nadi Magistrates Court this afternoon for allegedly dishonestly obtaining more than $3,000 via the mobile transfer app.

The accused had allegedly during August 2023, under the pretext of being an immigration officer, offered to arrange visas for a local 7s team, whereby she collected $3,069 for visa lodgement and biometric fees.

The money was sent and attempts made by the team to reach the accused were futile, following which a report was lodged.

The accused faces one count of Obtaining Financial Advantage by Deception.

Members of the public are requested to always verify information before making any payment, particularly if someone is acting in a third-party capacity.
