PUBLIC NOTICE IN RELATION TO CONMEN DUPING THE PUBLIC ABOUT PACKAGES AT ENTEBBE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
We have noted with concern that some people with deceitful intentions are taking advantage of unsuspecting members of the public to dupe them into believing that they have received packages/parcels from abroad. The culprits excite and convince their victims by posting photos of the alleged parcels on their Whatsapp or Facebook inbox and then solicit for money transmission via mobile money to allegedly clear the commodities.
The Public is hereby advised to desist from dealing with such conmen who disguise themselves as workers at Entebbe International Airport, and also refrain from making any payments for cargo clearance using mobile money. In case anyone is expecting a consignment through the airport, it is advisable to first verify with the airline that allegedly brought it or physically visit the airport to interface with the respective ground handler (NAS on Tel: 0791633057 or DAS on Tel: 0772419581 or 0705045056).
