The Royal Brunei Police Force reminds the public that if they see or are being approached by a suspicious individual who claims to be a personnel from the Royal Brunei Police Force or the Law Enforcement, they should report to the nearest Police Station or call the hotline 993. The reminder was made following a report on a man who was believed to be impersonating a law enforcement personnel for the purpose of committing fraud against the public.

The man’s modus operandi was impersonation by introducing himself as a police personnel and proceeding to issue fines upon the victims. The victims were also given false fine receipts as cover for the fraud activities.
