The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has on Monday, February 15, refuted the claims by some fraudulent job advertisements, claiming that the commission is recruiting.
According to a statement signed by the Head, Media and Publicity of the Commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, made available in Abuja.
According to the statement, the scam was to mislead vulnerable Nigerians and tarnish the reputation of the commission.
It stated that "the 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 applicants for employment into the service of the Commission.
"The Commission wishes to dissociate itself from these advertorials.''
It added that the EFCC recruitment was still a proposal and would announce it on major dailies, as well as the official website of the Commission -- http://www.efccnigeria.org, or through proxy and online portals.
The commission further urged people to report such fraudulent job advertisers.
