The Comptroller-General of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammad Babandede, has raised the alarm that fraudsters are using a fake NIS website to defraud Nigerians who are seeking employment.
In a statement on Tuesday by the NIS spokesman, Sunday James, Babandede said the scammers opened a website where they are presently carrying out fake recruitment activities.
The statement read in part: “The attention of the Comptroller-General of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammad Babandede has been drawn to a fake recruitment advert and exercise taking place on a fake website https/nis/recruitmentname.ng where unsuspected Nigerians are being duped.
“The Service is hereby disassociating itself from the exercise and advising Nigerians against subscribing to it as no recruitment is ongoing in the Service.”
It said vacancies were always free and made known to Nigerians via the national dailies, television, Radio and its authentic website (www.immigration.gov.ng).
