Posted: Thursday, July 20, 2017. 3:36 p.m. CST.

By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, today, issued a release stating that it has come to the attention of the Ministry that unknown persons have been attempting to scam money from the general public under the pretense that homes have been approved for them in a housing project purportedly being executed by the Ministry in Belmopan.

A copy of one such letter on the letterhead of the Housing and Planning Department was brought to the attention of the Ministry on July 20.

The public is advised that the person who purportedly signed the letter does not work in the Housing and Planning Department or the Ministry and that the letter is fake and has no validity.

The public is further advised that the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development is currently not executing any housing project in the city of Belmopan or anywhere else in the country of Belize, for that matter. This matter has been reported to the police for appropriate action.
