The Embassy is aware that scammers are operating in the area of its outsourcing company TLSContact. These people offer different services against payment of sometimes big amounts of money. Recently some people have been approached over the phone by scammers pretending to be from the Danish Embassy and offering to facilitate visa to Denmark. The Embassy would like to stress that these people have absolutely nothing to do with TLSContact or the Embassy. It is therefore strongly advised not to accept any assistance from people who might approach you outside the premises of TLSContact or at any other places in Lebanon including over the phone.
