Be mindful of fraudsters - EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has alerted the public to be mindful of fraudsters circulating forged offer of employment letters purporting same to be from the EFCC, and extorting members of the public.

A press release signed by Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesman and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), cited the purported recruitment form as having the heading: “EFCC Recruitment Form 2021/2022 and Guidelines Form and apply for the ongoing EFCC recruitment 2021”

According to Uwujaren, “Scammers are bent on defrauding hapless job seekers, have been active in the social media, providing link for unsuspecting members of the public seeking employment into the commission.” 

He said that the purported ‘EFCC Recruitment Form 2021’, as well as the  ‘Official Recruitment Portal’ and ‘Offer of Employment Letters’ are non-existent.

“For the avoidance of doubt, recruitment into the EFCC is a structured, transparent and merit-driven process which is always heavily advertised through the media.

“Also, through the commission’s social media platforms. It is highly automated, with no place for the so called employment form,” he said.

Uwujaren wants the public to cross check any doubtful information with the agency through: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

He said that the anti-graft body was on the trail of the scammers and no efforts would be spared to bring them to justice.
