It has come to the knowledge of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, that some unscrupulous members of the public have been defrauding unsuspecting Nigerians in the on-going recruitment exercise by the Commission.
The modus operandi of the scammers is to request for applications from job – seeking Nigerians and later inform the applicants to pay N49, 000 (Forty Nine Thousand Naira Only) as processing fee.
Thereafter, the “successful candidates” were asked to pay another N48, 000 (Forty Eight Thousand Naira Only) into an account for accommodation and transportation.
A poorly written appointment letter purportedly from a non-existent office of Director General, Ibrahim Lamorde and dated 03/07/2016, sent to one Ubong Aniefiok Bassey reads: “This is to inform you that you have been offered a job into the nigeria E.F.C.C, all applicant that have applied 2016/2017 nigeria EFCC form are expected to come down to the head office at Abuja on 15/07/2016.
Applicants are to pay his/her prescribed fees which is N49,000.0….All applicants are to come down to the head office at Abuja on 15/07/2017 with teller slip for the payment..Congratulations”.
The Commission does not and will never ask for money from prospective candidates in the ongoing recruitment exercise.
While efforts are on to track those behind these nefarious activities, we urge members of the public to be vigilant, not to fall victim of these scammers.
“To fear the world US has led for the better part of a century, abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe and refuse the obligations of international leadership… for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solving problems is unpatriotic. “
