Police are warning Cayman residents about a Jamaica-based hotel job scam.
Detectives say hundreds of people in Jamaica have been responding to job announcements on social media for jobs in a Cayman Islands hotel that does not exist.
After completing an interview, they’re asked to send $400 to the Cayman Islands for a work permit.
The scammers then befriend Cayman residents on social media and ask them to use their bank accounts to complete the transaction and, in some cases, then send the money to the scammers.
Anyone with information is asked to call the RCIPS Financial Crime Unit at 649-8797.
