V.I. Tourism Asks Public Ignore Messages from Fake Account Bearing Commissioner Boschulte’s Image

Joseph Boschulte, commissioner of Tourism of the U.S. Virgin Islands

The United States Virgin Islands Department of Tourism is advising the Virgin Islands community and potential visitors that a fake Messenger account is impersonating Commissioner of Tourism Joseph Boschulte.

The fake Messenger account is utilizing the picture from the commissioner’s official page and is interacting with the public.

This imposter account is now a part of the original complaint that the tourism department made to Facebook and that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now handling as an active investigation.

Boschulte is asking the public not to interact with this fake Messenger account and to block or delete any messages that bear his image until further notice.

Shouldn’t the VI Government also publish a list of people whose tax refund checks are delinquent? People the government owes. Seems only fair.

It would be nice if this was an actual link and not a screenshot

Here's one that should work for you: ltg.gov.vi/departments/property-tax-delinquency-list/

This would be a good opportunity for current and returning Virgin Islanders to buy homes without a huge mortgage

Nice, let people get robbed by Wapa, high cost of food, but when they can’t pay taxes, sell their homes to some rich statesiders! 🤯🤬

Jane, we just recently received our refund … surprisingly, with interest!

The link does not work.
