WhatsApp users in T&T are being urged not to fall for a fake news scam purporting to be from the Ministry of Labour.
A message circulated on the app is prompting persons to click on a link to check to see if they are eligible for ‘a government grant of $6000 for persons who worked between 2010 and 2021’.
However, the Ministry of Labour says the information is not true, and this message is not affiliated with the Ministry.
It says the Labour Ministry does not issue grants.
As such, persons are advised to desist from interacting with this post, its accompanying link or adhering to any of the instructions on this fake message.
