It has come to our attention that individuals masquerading as UNBS staff are conducting unauthorized inspections at different business premises and are extorting money from the business community.
UNBS would like to dissociate its self from such individuals and inform the public that UNBS staff are NOT SUPPOSED to demand for money to offer any service and all those doing so are MASQUERADERS and should be arrested.
