Police: Hoax Message Circulating Again

October 11, 2022 | 1 Comment

A message “warning against individuals claiming to be Home Affairs Officers, robbing homes,” is a hoax, the police confirmed today.

A police spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service is aware of a WhatsApp message making the rounds, warning against individuals claiming to be “Home Affairs Officers”, robbing homes.

“This is a hoax chain message which originated in the US and has been in circulation for a number of years.

“Should you receive the message, please do not share or forward it on and instead delete it.”

One of the versions of the fake message is:

Hi everyone just sharing this from another group.

Beware, the latest way to rob a house is a group going door to door pretending to be home affairs officers. They have documents and letterheads from the Department of Home Affairs and claim to confirm that everyone has a valid identity card for the upcoming census. They are looting houses. Please note that no such initiative has been taken by the government.

Please send this to your neighbourhood group chat. They are everywhere and they look presentable. Please alert your family and friends. Please forward to all groups.
