CHEMICO, Chemical Manufacturing and Investment Company Limited, has issued a warning to members of the public to beware of a former employee.

According to a CHEMICO statement, the company has received numerous reports from customers that the employee has been soliciting money on behalf of the Vieux Fort-based business establishment.

“Do not under any circumstances give monies or assistance to this individual,” CHEMICO has warned.

The company disclosed that many of its customers and other persons have become victims.

The manufacturing enterprise has requested that persons who are approached by the former employee should make a report to the police if approached or if they know of the individual’s whereabouts.
