November 19, 2019: The U.S. Embassy Port of Spain wishes to warn citizens of Trinidad and Tobago of a scam using the telephone numbers of the U.S. Embassy.
Members of the public informed the Embassy they received a call with U.S. Embassy Port of Spain’s telephone number listed as the caller ID. The caller claims to work for the U.S. Embassy and either demands money or offers contract work.
Please note, the U.S. Embassy does not call to demand money from individuals, and follows specific protocols when tendering offers.
If you receive a fraudulent call, please report the matter to the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service’s Fraud Squad.
