Beware of cyber criminals, Prime Minister Harris warns

Prime Minister and Minister of National Security of St. Kitts and Nevis and Chairman of the Regional Security System (RSS) Council of Ministers, Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris, has warned that people must be on their guard against cybercriminals in what he described as “a new emerging area that is creating a tremendous level of concern.”Speaking at the recently held RSS Council of Ministers Meeting at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort on March 17, Prime Minister Harris said that he was made aware that someone was operating in disguise under his name on the internet.

“Only recently, I was made aware that there was somebody operating under my name. That person or persons had been attempting to lure people into the trap that there was some United Nations (UN) Democracy Fund of which I am involved and which could provide them support,” said Prime Minister Harris. The prime minister called on persons in society to be more vigilant of persons trying to solicit money in the cyber world.
