ATIPU Warning

The Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force is cautioning the general public, specifically young females, about responding to a “Job Opportunity” advert that is making the rounds on social media.

Superintendent Ruth Jacobs, Head of the Criminal Investigations Department, said the advertisement is purporting to offer work to interested persons in the field of “dancing” and “modelling”.

She said this seemingly lucrative job opportunity if taken, can negatively affect the individual’s well-being and character.

Superintendent Jacobs is urging potential victims to carry out their own due diligence checks on the organization and its owner.

The Anti-Trafficking in Persons Unit of the Police Force is urging anyone who is a victim or potential victim of human trafficking, to contact the Unit at telephone number 456-1750/457-1211 or by email at [email protected]
