Government House Advises Of Fake Advert

March 19, 2022 | 0 Comments

Government House said they are “aware of a fake advert currently circulating on Facebook” and have reported it to “both to Facebook and the Bermuda Police Service.”

A spokesperson said, “Government House is aware of a fake advert [image 1] currently circulating on Facebook by a website called Irranisto.com. If you click on the link it takes you to a fake news article about a moneymaking scheme [image 2]. This website has been reported both to Facebook and the Bermuda Police Service.”

This is the latest in a continuous stream of scam websites using images of local officials and — to Bernews great displeasure — our logo, and we also repeatedly report the ads to Facebook, where they appear. According to Facebook location data, the ads are being generated from overseas.

The websites are clearly fake [the purported news links don't work, they use terminology of alleged entities that do not even exist in Bermuda etc] and as it is our logo being misappropriated we will mention the obvious point; any foreign website using our logo, on another domain, advertising on the U.S. based Facebook while making ludicrous claims, is obviously not associated with us in any manner.
