The Fiji National Provident Fund confirms it will take legal action against a person claiming to be an FNPF agent and hope that it will deter others from dishonest actions.
This is following claims the individual allegedly misled members and the general public about the distribution of unclaimed FNPF funds.
Chief Executive Officer, Viliame Vodonaivalu says this is not the first time they are dealing with this person and despite warnings, he continues to provide wrong information to members, creating unnecessary fear and panic.
He says members have come back to them alleging that this individual is also assisting members with withdrawal applications, digital platforms registration, amongst others.
Vodonaivalu adds people need to realize the gravity of the situation especially when entrusting someone with information that is confidential.
He says FNPF has high expectations of staff in terms of members’ financial information but for someone going rogue in the community they have no control over the usage of the information he or she has gained.
Vodonaivalu stresses the FNPF does not have any agents.
The requirements to claim these funds are also updated on the FNPF website.
Members are encouraged to contact the FNPF directly on 3307811 or 5857, email to Information@fnpf.com.fj and live chat on the FNPF website www.myfnpf.com.fj or visit any of their offices for further assistance.
