Don't fall for 'dinner at Port Authority' scam

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Residents beware! The Attorney General's Office has issued a consumer alert after receiving complaints from residents.  A man identifying himself as Justin Lim, representing Aviats Traveling Group based out of Hong Kong, has invited residents to a dinner event at the Port Authority. 

AG's Office spokesperson Bryan Cruz says although residents didn't attend, they were told they had won $125,000 and could claim the prize with a monetary deposit of $2,000.  "This is a scam and the attorney general cautions the consumers on Guam not to divulge any personal information, to protect your identity and that's why this alert was posted," said Cruz.

Cruz says no one on Guam actually forked out the cash to claim the prize. Anyone who may have been contacted by the company should call Consumer Protection Advocate Bernie Alvarez at 475-3324, Extension 171.
