The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC), an institution on the brink of being replaced by a Financial Crimes Commission, is dealing with a serious problem of “fake detectives” in action.

Indeed, around fifteen cases of individuals posing as members of the Commission or police officers have been recorded to date. These fake investigators claim that the individuals they call are under investigation and will soon be facing arrest.

A statement from the ICAC, warning against this situation, notes that “the callers ask recipients to meet in a public place to discuss and find a solution in exchange for a sum of money”.

The ICAC states that “summonses are never issued through phone calls, but through official mail. Additionally, no ICAC member ever shows up alone to apprehend an individual required by the Commission to be present.”

Any suspicious cases should be reported to the ICAC by calling 402 6600 or by visiting the Commission’s headquarters at Réduit Triangle in person.
