The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has warned jobseekers to be mindful of fraudsters while seeking to be enlisted into the service.
James Sunday, spokesperson of the Service, gave the warning in a statement on Tuesday while reacting to reports that the NIS was recruiting.
He said- “The attention of the Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service Muhammad Babandede MFR has been drawn to a fake NIS recruitment scam site and link posted on social media by fraudsters with the intention of defrauding innocent and unsuspecting Nigerians of monies.
“The Service had warned severally and is still warning good spirited Nigerians to avoid such fake recruitment offers which are not officially posted on the official NIS website,” he said.
He said no fee is charged for NIS recruitment and job seekers should avoid falling victims to criminal elements, stressing that the Service always publishes and announces its official recruitment and notifications through credible dailies and media platforms.
