Nigeria Customs Service (NCS): Advises Applicants to Disregard Invitation for Recruitment on Fake Website
Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) on Wednesday advised applicants to disregard the information on a fake website inviting them for the recruitment examination.
The Public Relations Officer of NCS, Deputy Comptroller, Joseph Attah, gave the advice in a statement in Lagos.
“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 patronised,” he said.
Attah urged members of the public to recall that customs denied several similar fake vacancies advertisement with a promise to properly inform the public whenever it was ready.
He said that it was a promise they had kept by advertising the vacancies in seven 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 programmes 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, please,” he said.
