Fiji’s Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) received two reports of online business scams this year, amounting to $400,000.

FIU Director Razim Buksh said he has seen a continuation of similar cases of online business scams.


“This year alone, we noticed two large transactions amounting to $400,000 that were sent to cybercriminals under the Business Email Compromise Program, where you will get the impression that the vendor from whom you buy goods and services is the same or has the same email address and the money is diverted to the bank account of cyber criminals.

He says Fijians should be diligent, diligent and careful and not open unsolicited email attachments.

Buksh says the FIU analyzed 132 reports of online scams during the 24-month pandemic period, and of those, 80 were related to online romance scams.
