Fraudsters now using fake Facebook profiles of HDC executives

The Housing Development Company says that a number of fake social media profiles of executives and senior members of staff of the HDC have been recently created.

According to the HDC, these profiles use bonafide images of the executives and staff members and engage individuals, through online platforms, in an effort to defraud them of their hard-earned money.

The HDC says it is aware of the fraudsters’ efforts and has transferred all information to its security department for transmission to the Fraud Squad of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service.
