11 Mar 2024 ROP warns of job scams via SMS

Muscat – The Royal Oman Police (ROP) stated on Monday that it is monitoring a new fraud targeting youngsters, which involves the use of fake job offers sent via SMS to lure victims and persuade them to participate in specific online businesses for financial gain.

In a statement issued by ROP said, ‘Once funds are transferred to their bank accounts, victims are asked to pay money to obtain a tempting prize, followed by further requests, all without realising they have fallen victim to an organised scam.’

The Royal Oman Police urges all citizens and residents to verify the authenticity and source of published announcements and report any suspicions to the relevant authorities.
