The Bankers Association of Trinidad and Tobago (BATT) is warning citizens of a fraudulent investment scam.

In a statement on Wednesday, BATT said there is an Instagram account sharing false information about a partnership with commercial banks in Trinidad & Tobago in an attempt to solicit funds from unsuspecting individuals.

The Association said this is a scam and is not sanctioned by or affiliated with BATT or any of its member banks.

It added it is a fraudulent ad and neither BATT nor its member banks have given any approval to anyone to act on their behalf with respect to any proposed investment scheme.

The Association is urging citizens to ignore them.

It is also asking these various entities or persons to desist from placing BATT and its member banks’ logos on their ads.
