Energo-Pro Georgia, a company responsible for electricity distribution across the country, has urged vigilance on the backdrop of a “pyramid scheme” operation that has been targeting social media users in the name of the company and offering them an investment opportunity.

The electricity distributor said operators of the deceitful scheme were offering both Georgian citizens and residents in the country to make an investment into a “vague financial operation”.

Its statement follows a video released earlier this month on social media and video platforms with an announcement of the supposed programme for investment.

The company has urged recipients of the messages to avoid registering on platforms fraudulent offering the opportunity, and added it had notified the Interior Ministry’s cybersecurity hotline and police about the scheme.
