It has come to the attention of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation and Gambians Abroad (MoFA), that some unscrupulous individuals have created pseudo Instagram Account, using the name and picture of the Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Ousainu Darboe, to extort money fraudulently.
The target is the Diaspora, in particular those Gambians perceivably in some immigration challenges and who are made to believe that they are in conversation with the Hon. Minister for a way out of their difficulties, in return for a fee.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs repudiates this action and disassociates itself from it, and as such would like to inform the general public that the Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Ousainu Darboe has no such Instagram Account nor is he online to enter into any conversation with any Gambian regarding their immigration status anywhere in the world.
The Ministry warns Gambians to be wary, while urging those involved in the ugly practice to quit.
