The Uganda Police Force has with concern urged the general public to keep a keen eye and avoid falling victims of fraudsters that are reportedly going around issuing fake Swedish Visas to unsuspecting members of the public.
ASP Charlse Twiine, the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Spokesperson revealed that fraudstars go around convincing innocent citizens into trusting them with money who in turn they promise to process and issue them with Swedish Visas and work permits.
“Police has so far received a number of complaints from various victims, and we have commenced investigations into the matter under CID headquarters GEF 1180/2020,” he said.
He however, noted that the suspects have been identified, profiled and that efforts are underway to ensure they are arrested and brought to book with appeals to the public to keep vigilant.
“We appeal to the public to be on a look out and report any person suspected to be involved in such fraudelent tractions to CID headquarters,” said Twiine.
He further appealed to members of the Public to seek consular services from the Embassies or official designated places.
