UWI advises of fraudulent cheques in circulation

The University of the West Indies Mona Campus says unscrupulous persons have presented fraudulent cheques purporting to be from institution's Western Jamaica Campus Imprest Account and drawn on the Bank of Nova Scotia, Montego Bay branch.

In a news release, the university said it wishes to advise the public that it does not operate such an account and that the public should be aware of the circulation of these cheques.

"The public is further advised to seek verification with the UWI Mona Campus for all cheques presented and to report immediately to the police any suspicious transactions," the university added.
