- The Nigerian Customs called on applicant to be careful and not become victims of job scams
- The NCS said it will contact shortlisted candidates on interviews via email and sms
- Applicants were also cautioned not to pay any money to anyone for recruitment
The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) has warned job applicants to be wary of fake information purportedly from it claiming to invite shortlisted candidates for an interview.
In a post on its social media page, the customs service said it has not issued any circular asking shortlisted candidates to come for any examination or interviews. It said such information in circulation should be disregarded.
It said candidates who have been shortlisted will be appropriately contacted through mail and sms. It added that the service will not request for any payment throughout the invitation/exercise.
Meanwhile, the comptroller general of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammad Babandede, advised Nigerians to desist from patronising fake recruitment sites as the service is not recruiting.
Legit.ng notes that the spokesman of NIS, Sunday James, in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, August 20, disclosed that Babandede gave the warning due to the increasing activities of fraudsters across the country.
The statement read: “This notice became necessary due to the increasing activities of fraudsters that have remained unrepentant.
“After several arrests and arraignment they continue to open fake recruitment sites through which they defraud unsuspecting citizens of their money.
“The fake recruitment sites created by the fraudsters include https://www.recruitment.com.ng ,hotnigerianjobs/military/nigeria-immigration-recruitment-portal-www-immigration-gov-ng.”
He further said that the NIS, apart from publishing its official recruitment in reputable newspapers, would not charge any fee for it.
