The Roads Authority (RA) has come out to caution members of the public on a recent scam in which fraudsters are offering learner licenses for a fee to be paid via E-wallet services.
The authority said that the scammers have used the pictures of its employees on WhatsApp to lure desperate people.
“The RA is disturbed by such fraudulent, dishonest and criminal behaviour and condemns it in the strongest terms. The RA has taken the necessary steps to ensure that those involved will face the full wrath of the law,” the authority said.
The public has been advised that any payments related to NaTIS services are done over the counter at their offices countrywide, and that RA does not accept nor provide options for payments via E-wallet or blue wallet services.
“Thus, members of the public are humbly requested to be alert at all time and to not fall prey to these fraudsters purporting to represent the RA on social media or any other platforms,” RA said.
Persons who are unsuccessful in their learner license test are requested to follow the necessary procedure to apply for the test re-write.
