‘The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, wishes to alert the general public about the activities of some unscrupulous elements who have cashed in on the plan by the Commission to recruit more personnel to defraud unsuspecting job seekers. In recent weeks, some unscrupulous online portals have featured advertisements supposedly from the EFCC, inviting applications for employment into the service of the Commission.
One of such advertisements appeared in Forum Nigeria, with the link,http://forumng.com/ng/forum/279564/nigeria-efcc-recruitment-informing job seekers that “application form is out”, and advising them to contact a GSM number, for further information and registration guideline.
The Commission wishes to dissociate itself from these advertorials. For the avoidance of doubt, there is no recruitment currently going on in the EFCC. The announcement by the Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu, that the EFCC intends to recruit more staff remain a proposal which is yet to be approved. The Commission therefore advises job seekers to be wary of any vacancy announcement online and report any solicitation for money in exchange of job placement in the EFCC, to the nearest police station.
Vacancies in the Commission are normally advertised in major newspapers or on our official websitehttp://www.efccnigeria.org/ and not through proxy or online portals.’
