POLICE say to be careful and check the background of people offering jobs abroad as they receive complaints about bogus employment agents.

Overseas employment with the promise of a bigger and better purse have always appealed to the Fijian and police believe that with this allure some con artists have also been able to swindle money from those looking for a better future for their families.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said they had received complaints about bogus agents allegedly deceiving people.

He said police would investigate these complaints.
