Four persons, three females and one male were this morning arrested in sections of Spanish Town, St Catherine and Mount Pleasant, Manchester by detectives from MOCA for their suspected involvement in an Oversees Employment Fraud Scheme.

This morning’s activity carried out by Police personnel from MOCA, Mobile Reserve SWAT and the Manchester Operational Support Teams, along with members of the Military was another phase in an ongoing MOCA investigation.

In November 2016 a report was made to MOCA stating that persons purporting to be employees of the Ministry of Labour and Social Security were fleecing persons of money with the hope of providing them with overseas employment.

Following investigations, the identities of the suspects were obtained, resulting in this morning’s operation.
