Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) yesterday warned unemployment youths to be wary of internet fraudsters using the internet to scam them of recruitment in the NCS.
The service in a press statement signed by Public Relations Officer of the NCS, DC Joseph Attah copies made available to newsmen in Ilorin noted that:” The attention of the Nigeria Customs Service has again been drawn to the unrepentant activities of internet fraudsters despite several scam alerts by NCS.
“Recent activities of these elements show criminal ingenuity, presenting fake platforms that appear seemingly genuine to deceive and extort unsuspecting applicants that the Service has released short-listed names for recruitment examination/interview.
” For the umpteenth time, NCS wishes to state that these recruitment websites/platforms are fake and should not be patronized.
“Members of the public will recall that we denied several similar fake vacancies advertisement with a promise to properly inform the public whenever we are ready. A promise we kept by advertising the vacancies in seven (7) National newspapers.
“NCS is again warning against patronage of any release of short-listed candidates with a promise of letting successfully short-listed candidates know through their email addresses and telephone numbers soon.
“Additionally, such official release will be a news item in all NCS programs on TV and Radio stations. (Note that the internet fraudsters don’t normally use the TV and Radio).”
Accordingly, “all applicants are advised to disregard any invitation for recruitment examination/interview and wait patiently for the official release and invitation from the Service”, the statement added.
