Shina Peller dissociates self from fraudulent online trading

Shina Peller, an Honourable Member of the Federal House of Representatives, has dissociated himself from fraudulent online trading done in his name.

The lawmaker issued a statement warning the public about a Facebook account opened in his name with the purpose of "duping innocent people of their money".

Shina Peller shared on Twitter: "My attention has been drawn to a fraudulent element impersonating me on Facebook and chatting with people via messenger, telling them about a particular nonexistent online trading and asking them to invest in it for the purpose of duping innocent people of their money

"I hereby state categorically that I am not into any fraudulent online trading and will never ask anyone, via messenger or other means, to invest in it. The purported Facebook account is fake, and therefore should be disregarded.

"Fraudulent people find impersonation on Facebook very easy because anyone can use any name to open an account, even if the real person already has an account on Facebook as in my case. Please be guided so that you don't fall a victim of online fraud".
