The Nigeria Customs Service has raised fresh alarm over what it termed as new antics of fraudsters offering non-existing jobs to unsuspecting members of the public.
In a Facebook post yesterday, the service acknowledged the existence of a fraudsters have been posting offer of recruitments on social media.
According to the Customs, “on a daily basis, the Nigeria Customs Service receive complaints from victims of fraudsters who have been duped of various amounts running into millions of naira”. So, it is important to know that fraudsters are on prowl duping unsuspecting and desperate job seekers”, it warned.
The service also advised that members of the public should no matter how genuine or persuasive the posting may appear.
“Take a second look, even if the advert look authentic and persuasive, even as it acknowledged that, “the use of the authentic Customs website www.customs.gov.ng may sway many desperate job seekers”.
“No matter how smart criminals may be, they always leave something to give them away. Since their intention is to scam people, a point of payment is always incorporated in their adverts”. “This is not possible with the authentic website”.
Specifically, the Customs noted that, “a fake one like the: ''www.customsrecruit.com.ng/vacancy.pdf '' was therefore created to request payment before forms are completed.
