Vodafone Fiji is advising members of the public not to fall into the money-making scam by sending their hard-earned money to fake schemes and must immediately report this matter to the police cybercrime unit.
This comes after certain posts being circulated on Facebook showing some people posting screenshots of their M-Paisa balance and videos of them thanking particular persons for transferring thousands of dollars to their M-Paisa accounts.
Vodafone Fiji Head of eCommerce & Digital Financial Services, Shailendra Prasad says the large amount of money being shown on the screenshot taken from the M-Paisa app to convince unsuspecting people is doctored and falsified by manually changing the balance to make it look real.
He says there is no such free money transferred to anyone through the app from any investment schemes.
Prasad says scammers and fraudsters are also using ordinary people into posting emotional videos to appeal to the public to send them money to invest in their fraudulent schemes.
