The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has alerted the public to an employment scam by some unscrupulous elements who have invites applicants to visit a fake website said to be established by the Service.
The NIS, in a signed press release on Friday by the Service Public Relations Officer, Amos Okpu, an Assistant Comptroller of Immigration asked the members of the public to treat the website with a pinch of salt.
The press release read: “The attention of the Comptroller General of Immigration, CGI Muhammad Babandede MFR has been drawn to some online publications inviting unsuspecting job applicants to apply for some vacancies in the Service.
“In the said publications, applicants are required to visit a certain website indicated as http://immigrationrecruitment.org/?p=apply-online to apply for job vacancies in the Nigeria Immigration Service. Apart from the fact that this portal address is unconventional and thus fraudulent, the entire content of the publication is completely untrue.
“They did indicate therein that screening exercise for applicants is slated for the 19th July, 2021. This is not only false, deceptive but also a calculated attempt to defraud unsuspecting job seekers.”
Okpu, in the press release stated that: “Consequently, the Comptroller General wishes to use this medium to advise members of the public to ignore the publication as the Service is currently not conducting any recruitment exercise.”
