Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) on Wednesday dissociated itself from some lists of “successful applicants” for its recruitment. It described the release of the lists as the handiwork of fraudsters.
Joseph Attah, NCS National Public Relations Officer, announced this in a statement to The Nation.
He described it as an “attempt to deceive and extort unsuspecting applicants”.
The spokesman warned that such recruitment websites are fake and should not be patronised by the public.
Attah, a Deputy Comptroller of Customs, said: “The attention of the Nigeria Customs Service has again been drawn to the unrepentant activities of internet fraudsters despite several scam alerts by NCS.
“Recent activities of these elements show criminal ingenuity, presenting fake platforms that appears seemingly genuine to deceive and extort unsuspecting applicants that the Service has released short-listed names for recruitment examination/interview.
