The Canarian Government has issued a warning of fake work inspectors demanding money from businesses.
It seems that some people are posing as work inspectors, claiming to change security signs in businesses, particularly fire and escape notices, and charging for the work.
A business in Santa Cruz reported that this had happened last week, and the Government has advised businesses to be on guard to avoid becoming additional victims of the presumed fraud.
The Government said that such inspections, when carried out by legitimate inspectors, are never charged for, and urged business to check any such callers’ official ID, which should be issued by central, not regional Government.
The Police are now investigating the reported incidents. C7
