They contact people through Facebook claiming that the person’s name is listed on CIF’s ‘winners list’ and request bank information to transfer their winnings. If you are contacted by someone in regard to this, we urge you to contact your local authorities.To be clear, this is NOT the Community Initiatives Fund.
