THE Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has called on Nigerians to ignore a message circulating on social media that it is currently recruiting.

The anti-graft agency in a statement titled, ‘EFCC not recruiting’ by its Head, Media and Publicity, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, described such message as fake and the handiwork of scammers bent on defrauding job seekers.

The EFCC stated that the fraudsters had been on social media providing fake link for unsuspecting job seekers for a “EFCC Recruitment Form and Guidelines”, adding that such message did not emanate from the Commission and should be ignored.

According to the statement, “The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission wishes to alert the public about fake EFCC Recruitment Form 2021 circulating in the social media, and to warn that the Commission is currently not recruiting.

“Scammers bent on defrauding hapless job seekers, have been active in the social media, providing link for unsuspecting members of the public seeking employment into the EFCC, to obtain, “EFCC Recruitment Form 2021/2022 and Guidelines Form and apply for the ongoing EFCC recruitment 2021.”

The statement also cautioned members of the public to ignore forged letters of employment purportedly from the EFCC used to extort unsuspecting members of the public.

It described recruitment into the EFCC as a structured and merit-driven process always advertised through the mass media and the agency’s social platform.

The statement read in part, “Fraudsters are also circulating forged Offer of Employment Letters, purporting same to be from the EFCC, and extorting members of the public.

“The public should note that there is no ongoing recruitment in the EFCC. The purported ‘EFCC Recruitment Form 2021’, as well as the ‘official recruitment portal’ and ‘Offer of Employment Letters’, are non -existent.

“The EFCC is on the trail of the scammers behind this devious scheme as no efforts will be spared to bring them to justice.

“The Commission urges the public to cross-check any doubtful information with the agency through: info@efccnigeria.org.”
