Police And FBI Alert The Public To Fake Terror Attack Warnings Recently Spread On Social Media

February 19, 2019

In response to the circulating WhatsApp voice message indicating a threat to the USVI in the coming months, the FBI has revealed no evidence to substantiate that threat or to support any other terrorist threats to the Territory.

The Virgin Islands Police Department continues to work with their Federal Law Enforcement Partners and advising the community that “HOAX THREATS “ are not a joke, and have devastating consequences to both the public and the perpetrators.

Issuing this type of threat over social media, via text message, or through email is a Federal Crime.
