Prime Min­is­ter Warns of On­line Im­poster

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Apress state­ment from the Of­fice of the Prime Min­is­ter on Thurs­day has in­di­cated that Dr. Kenny An­thony has been made aware of a fake Face­book pro­file bear­ing his name and pho­to­graph.

The im­poster, or im­posters, im­per­son­at­ing the prime min­is­ter is said to be en­gag­ing in­di­vid­u­als who be­lieve they are cor­re­spond­ing with the “real” prime min­is­ter.

Ac­cord­ing to the state­ment, in sev­eral copies of con­ver­sa­tions ob­tained, the per­son, or per­sons, op­er­at­ing the fake pro­file have so­licited per­sonal in­for­ma­tion from con­tacts in ex­change for cash and other prom­ises.

The prime min­is­ter wishes to ad­vise that the only real pro­file bear­ing his name can be found at https:// www.face­book.com/pro­file. php?id=100000425153803 while his of­fi­cial, au­then­ti­cated Face­book page can be found at https://www­face­book.com/ ken­ny­davisan­thony.

Those who wish to di­a­logue with Dr. An­thony can do while the Prime Min­is­ter will not spec­u­late on the mo­tive so via th­ese pro­files.

While the prime min­is­ter would not spec­u­late on the mo­tive be­hind the fake pro­file, he has asked all Saint Lu­cians to be on alert when shar­ing per­sonal in­for­ma­tion or re­quests on Face­book, es­pe­cially in such a height­ened political en­vi­ron­ment.
