BEIRUT: General Security Wednesday warned the Lebanese against falling for dubious job offers abroad, describing these scams as a “spy trap.”

“Some people from inside and outside Lebanon try to convince [Lebanese] citizens that they can provide work for them abroad, using fictional company names and asking them to send their personal documents such as a passport or identity card by e-mail or other means to specific addresses. [The Lebanese] find out later that the companies are fictitious and do not exist,” a statement from the General Security said.

It said these scams were designed to trick individuals into espionage.

The General Security urged citizens to call 1717 or report such scams to the nearest General Security post.
