The locations involved in the temporary closure include three in Montego Bay, St James; one in Falmouth, Trelawny; one in Brown's Town, St Ann; and one in Spanish Town, St Catherine.

GraceKennedy Money Services says it has decided to close these locations because of an unusually high number of suspected fraudulent transactions being reported at them.

It says these fraudulent transactions have occurred despite enhancement of its antifraud programmes and continued investment in technology.

GraceKennedy Money Services says the affected locations will be reopened if and when it is satisfied that adequate additional anti-fraud measures have been taken.
