The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has called on Nigerians to be wary of the activities of internet fraudsters, advertising vacancies in the Service.
“You cannot replace anybody. We have arrested a number of internet fraudsters and even secured some convictions in 2017, yet people will not resist the temptation by these fraudsters,” said Attah.
According to him, when members of the public see an advertisement for replacement of personnel, which requires them to part with money, it should call for caution.
The customs spokesperson urged job seekers to be cautious and ask why the fraudsters avoid personal contact with them.
He also said by giving private bank account numbers for job seekers to pay money into, when they were supposed to be dealing with a government organisation, should also make the job seekers suspicious.
Attah advised job seekers to dismiss any recruitment process that begins and ends outside Customs premises, saying they should go to the nearest Customs formation to verify such claims before parting with money.
