viagra geneva;”>In a statement issued on Monday, Police said it had received reports from the business community especially those who deal in motor vehicles and spare parts of having been defrauded of their money by fraudsters from Japan.

This has been highly experienced by the community who search for cheap vehicles on the internet.

“The Ugandan Police have received many complaints from Ugandans on how they have lost good sum of money to the fraudsters. These cases are of a civil nature and the Japanese Police don’t handle. The Japanese Police normally refer this as civil affairs which our business community may not easily attain justice there,” the statement read in part.

“We want Ugandans to know that all victims of such scams stand high chances of losing their hard earned cash at the hand of some websites.”

The Uganda Police therefore urged the business community to take due diligence on which company they are dealing with, avoid dealing with individuals but with established registered companies while transacting business out -side the country.

“If you are not sure, you may establish facts from clearing agents. Potential buyers may also contact Interpol – Uganda for background checks of the company you are dealing with,” police said, without revealing identities of those who have fallen victim to the internet scam.
