IDF warns of conmen posing as soldiers

Following a report of two men posing as representatives of the Home Front Command to collect personal information, the IDF warns the citizenry to beware of such charlatans.

The IDF warned on Thursday of conmen posing as being from the Home Front Command to collect personal data on citizens. The scheme has been brought to the attention of the Israel Police.

 

 

A message from the Home Front Command said, "In recent days, situations have been brought to our attention in which persons posing as representatives of the Home Front Command have come to residents' homes and asked for personal information, claiming that the information would be necessary at a time of war."

The message was disseminated following a complaint from a resident of the South, who said that two men came to her son's home on Tuesday where she was staying.

 

"They were both wearing uniforms—one of a policeman and one of a soldier with the unit insignia of the Home Front Command. He was holding papers," she retold. "They said that they had been sent by the Home Front Command because of the security situation, and they were checking how many people were at home. I gave them details and my son and my identity card. Afterwards, it turned out they collecting all the details from tenants on the street."
