The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has raised an alarm over the activities of fraudsters duping ignorant job seekers warning applicants not to fall victim.
The anti-graft agency’s Head of Media, Mr Wilson Uwujaren in a statement on Tuesday warned applicants not to fall victims into the tricks played on their intelligence.
Uwujaren said that the agency’s employment process is open and transparent and cannot be compromised through bribery.
“Some unscrupulous individuals are seeking to exploit the current recruitment exercise in the commission for private gain by soliciting payment from unsuspecting job seekers in order to facilitate their employment into the commission.
“This is a scam and members of the public are warned not to deal with anyone with such proposition as the agency does not collect money from job seekers. Candidates that participated in the recent aptitude test by the Commission should avoid falling prey to tricksters by shunning any promise of employment for a fee,” he said.
He further advised members of the public to report any request for money for employment into the Commission at the nearest office of the EFCC or the nearest police station.
