Persons have set up a fake profile of Premier Dr D Orlando Smith on social networking site Facebook and are trying to raise funds through the said profile.
The premier, who also serves as the territory’s finance minister, has used his original Facebook page to urge members of the public not to allow themselves to be swindled.
“Please note that a fake profile with my name is circulating and seeking funds. Do not accept any friend requests from this account or pledge any donations. Please also make an immediate report to Facebook, and thanks to those who have been vigilant thus far,” Premier Smith wrote on his original Facebook page.
