Nigeria Customs Service wishes to remind our stakeholders that the Service is not presently recruiting and that auction of seized or overtime cargo remain suspended till further notice.
This reminder, says Joseph Attah, Deputy Public Relations Officer is 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.
“It is disheartening to note that despite several warnings, arrests and prosecutions, internet fraudsters are still using this online platform to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians. It is therefore imperative to advice people to stop patronizing these seemingly juicy offers on the internet, promising job, auction and contracts upon payment of some amount of money into private accounts.
For the avoidance of doubt, NCS wishes to inform the general public that it is not undergoing any recruitment exercise. Similarly, auction of seized vehicles or overtime cargo remain suspended until further notice.
“While refusing to patronize them you could also help the Service to get rid of the fraudsters by reporting suspicious offers online or traditional media to the nearest Customs formation”, he stated.
