Customs warns public against recruitment, auction scams

The Nigeria Customs Service has alerted its
stakeholders that it is not presently recruiting and that auction of seized or
overtime cargo remain suspended till further notice.

A statement by the Deputy Public Relations
Officer, Mr Jeseph Attah, said the reminder was necessary to prevent people
from being defrauded by criminal elements who open fake Facebook accounts in
the name of the Comptroller –General of Customs, Col Hameed Ibrahim Ali (Rtd) advertising job vacancies, auction
and contracts.
 The customs expressed disgust saying it was
disheartening to note that despite several warnings, arrests and prosecutions,
internet fraudsters still used online platform to defraud unsuspecting
It therefore warned by advising people to stop
patronising such seemingly juicy offers on the internet, promising job, auction
and contracts upon payment of some amount of money into private accounts.
It said that for the avoidance of doubt, the
NCS informs the general public that it is not undergoing any recruitment
exercise and that no auction of seized vehicles or overtime cargo was being
done until further notice. 
It advised the public to help the Service get
rid of the fraudsters by reporting suspicious offers online or traditional
media to the nearest Customs formation.
