Beware of fake employment letters, NIS warns

The Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) on Thursday drew the attention of Nigerians to fake and invalid employment letters in circulation purportedly issued by the service.
The NIS made this known in a statement by its Public Relations Officer (SPRO), Mr Kenneth Udo, in Abuja.
Udo warned desperate job seekers to exercise caution so as not to fall victim to the fraudsters.
According to him, the fraudulent letters falsely claim that the recipients have been offered employment with the NIS.
He said “the Service categorically denies any involvement in this fraudulent scheme and refutes the misinformation being spread on social media platforms regarding an ongoing recruitment/replacement exercise.
“The NIS shall continue to ensure that any unscrupulous elements engaging in this criminality will be made to face the wrath of the law.
“The public is hereby advised to report these scammers to the nearest NIS office or law enforcement agencies.
“The Nigeria Immigration Service recruitment exercise is exclusively advertised through reputable national dailies, television broadcasts, and our official website, http://www.immigration.gov.ng.

Udo said that the Service was resolutely committed to safeguarding the interest of Nigerians and upholding the integrity of its recruitment processes.
