WARNINGS have been issued by the Fiji Police Force this week regarding online scams and online communications of members of the public.

The warnings come in the wake of the case of a 20-year-old student accused of possession of property suspected of being the proceeds of crime, allegedly the yields of an online scam.

The accused allegedly received a sum of more than $72,000 which was illegally transferred from an account in Australia, from a friend she had befriended online.

It is alleged the student withdrew $10,000 from this fund, $7000 of which was reported to have been sent to multiple recipients in Nigeria.

The accused was called to Suva Magistrates Court on Tuesday and is due to reappear in the High Court on March 21, according to police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro.
