The Guyana Post Office Corporation (GPOC), has issued a disclaimer saying that it does not have any promotion on social media platforms.
The corporation stated further that it does not request payment of any kind or any sort of fees via these media, nor does it authorise anyone to collect money or arrive at any monetary arrangement in return for a competition prize.
Additionally, the corporation stated that it reserves the right to take legal action, including criminal action against the individuals/entities perpetuating the scam.
Speaking to the Guyana Standard this morning, Public Relations Officer (PRO), Thalissa McClure, said that the scam was brought to the corporation’s attention after a woman showed up this morning at the Head Office in Georgetown, to pick up her “prize”.
She said that the matter was not reported to the Guyana Police Force (GPF) yet, because the corporation is currently assessing the extent of the scam before a formal complaint is made.
If you receive any unauthorized, suspicious or fraudulent offer or call, please email the GPOC at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact them on their Facebook page at Guyana Post Office Corporation.
