Scam alert: Immigration warns public against fake job adverts on social media
The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has warned the public against falling for some spurious public notices circulating on social media platforms announcing a general recruitment or placement exercise into the service
The Comptroller General of the Service, Isah Jere Idris gave the warning on Thursday stating that it is important state that such publications are nothing but grand design by some fraudulent persons seeking to deceive and exploit unsuspecting members of the public of non-existent vacancies
Amos Okpu, Assistant Comptroller of Immigration Service Public Relations Officer gave this in a press statement.
The CG added that “Apart from the fact that the entire publication is a product of very poor conception, the portal indicated for application is strange to decency.
“Suffice it be stated clearly that the Service is currently NOT undertaking any recruitment exercise whatsoever and so the public is hereby advised to ignore any such publications.
The acting Comptroller General said he wished to use the opportunity to enjoin members of the public to avoid falling into the antics of fraudulent job merchants who are out there to deceive them with empty promises of job placement into the Service.
He stressed that the Service has always used all the conventional and notable social media means including its website to announce recruitment exercises rather than the pedestrian approach used by the authors of the deceitful recruitment notices.
He assured that efforts are ongoing to track down those behind such fraudulent publications with the aim of bringing them to justice.
