The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) has advised members of the public that there are fraudsters moving around masquerading as ZACC official and defrauding individuals and companies.
In a statement, ZACC urged citizens that it does not send agents to demand bribes in order to cover their offences. Said ZACC:
It has come to our attention that there are bogus people approaching unsuspecting victims and presenting themselves as Zacc officers intending to solicit for bribes on the pretext that they will help them get away with committed offences.
Citizens are advised that Zacc does not operate in such a manner and are also reminded that by paying these supposed bribes, they are aiding to the corruption and committing further offences.
Those that have been approached can report such matters on email to firstname.lastname@example.org or approach our offices to report in person.
We believe that in order to effectively fight corruption, all avenues that promote corruption regardless of size must be shut with urgency and we look forward to working with all stakeholders in such scenarios to actively close these pilferage opportunities.
