- Registration by proxy
This act is highly prohibited. This is dubious attempt to trick the system to bypass the biometric verification. The affected PCM can’t register at the camp because the biometric used didn’t match.
Don’t allow anyone to use his/her fingerprint to register on your behalf even if yours is not captured by the scanner, keep trying.
- Mixed up Registration
It is advised to sit with the person doing the registration at the Cyber Café and ensure he/she doesn’t register another person at the same time you are registering yours. Registering more than one person at the same time in the same browser either on different tabs can cause mix up of PCMs data and this will be difficult to rectify.
