Governor's Linkedin profile cloned

Jan 10, 2019 Crime

H.E. Governor Martyn Roper has joined the list of public officials whose profiles have been cloned on social media. On Thursday (10 January) the Governor's Office issued a warning about a fake Martyn Roper Linkedin profile. It was set up using the Governor’s personal information. His office said a number of people were contacted from the bogus account. It was requesting contributions to support a charity. The matter has been reported to both Linkedin and police. The Governor does have a LinkedIn account set up some years ago which carries his correct title and has over 500 followers. The URL for this account is https://www.linkedin.com/in/martyn-roper-obe-78806793. Anyone who may have received such messages should contact the Financial Crimes Unit by emailing RCIPS.FCU@gov.ky.
