The EFCC job must be very lucrative for a jobless Nigerian to pay 3million.
Scammers know that finding a job especially in Nigeria can be so tough.
The rate of unemployment in Nigeria is rather on the high side.
Consequently, some fellows maximize the situation by taking advantage of the teeming population of gullible job seekers in Nigeria. These fellows are called Scammers. They are everywhere.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) according to her twitter handle @officialEFCC has twitted the arrest of one Hajiya Hadiza Umar Abubakar for defrauding a job seeker, Nuraddeen Abubakar of N3,000,000 (Three Million Naira only) through a fake promise of securing employment for him in the EFCC.
An Employer scammer is someone or group of people who build a relationship with you, pretending to be a legitimate employer or recruitment agency then uses fraudulent claims to defraud you.
Scams succeed because of two things.
Firstly, a scam looks like the real thing. It appears to meet your need or desire.
Secondly, scammers manipulate you by ‘pushing your buttons’ to produce the automatic response they want. It’s nothing to do with you personally, it’s to do with the way individuals(job seekers) in society are wired up emotionally and socially. It’s because the response is automatic that people fall for the scam. To stop scammers manipulating you into their traps, it can be useful to know how to prevent the automatic response they expect.
However, desparate job seekers will go by any means necessary to secure a job especially a government job
To trick people looking for honest work, scammers advertise where real employers and job placement firms do. They also make upbeat promises about your chances of employment, and virtually all of them ask you to pay them for their services before you get a job. But the promise of a job isn’t the same thing as a job. If you have to pay for the promise, it’s likely a fraudster.
One should apply caution so as not to fall a victim
