WARNING OF FRAUD ATTEMPTS AND FALSE INFORMATION

Some pages/groups on social media platforms are publishing inaccurate and false information on distribution of assistance, as well as rumours on returns to Syria.

To all Persons of Concern to UNHCR in Jordan:

Please note that some pages/groups on social media platforms are publishing inaccurate and false information on distribution of assistance, as well as rumours on returns to Syria. Some are claiming that UNHCR is involved or issued official statements. To avoid these attempts of fraud, exploitation and false information, please do not get in contact with these pages, as they do not represent UNHCR or its partners.

Information on services by UNHCR are announced through UNHCR Jordan’s official channels. Even in the current situation, with the changes in our work modalities due to the precautionary measures in place to limit the spreading of COVID-19, UNHCR will still be communicating any sensitive information and general announcements on its services through its official channels: official UNHCR Jordan Facebook page and Twitter (@UNHCRJordan), official UNHCR Jordan website (www.unhcr.org/jo), Community Support Committees, SMS and the UNHCR Helpline (064008000).

Always make sure you receive your information from an official source and from UNHCR, and avoid any rumours/false news that may be spreading among the community. You can always get in touch with UNHCR to verify this kind of information.

We would also like to remind you that all UNHCR services, including Resettlement, are free of charge. If you feel you have been a victim of fraud, or if you are aware of fraud or any other form of misconduct by a UNHCR staff member or its partners, please report this to UNHCR. All complaints will be treated as confidential; you may report anonymously if you do not wish to share your name or case number.
