ABEG GUYS, COME TO MY RESCUE.....
Last week I got a mail with an application letter from a suspicious email address (federalcustomserviceinbox@gmail.com): with an application letter instructing me to print, fill and submit back through the email.
I DID THAT.
Today I got another email with a letter of invitation as it is in the picture, demanding I pay a sum of 7500naira to an account that in ecobank(in the picture). Please guys the whole thing smells fishy. Why will they demand for money from an unemployed graduate. Has anybody received. Something like this from Anyone


Yeah! I got exactly the same thing! it's pure scam! I knew it to be scam when I saw Human Resourse instead of Human Resource and d date of my interview as Dec. 22th instead of 22nd. wisdom is profitable to direct! #BeWise. No true employer will make such mistake!

Scam! Trust me, you will hate yourself when you're done. Some idiot criminals would try to rip off the small change you even take along. They will even claim that they are doing you a favour and everyone that works(including those that earn btw 200k - 1.5M/month) are slaves...lool. Dont waste your time going to meet those pathetic jokers.


Thank u very much, sorry it came late

Did you apply to this company in the first place? That should provide the answer for u.

Since it sounds like u are based in abj, it would only make sense that you apply for job positions in abj. Na scam be that.

LaurelP:
I have seen so many Nairalanders complaining and lamenting their ordeal in the hands of fake scam companies who invite people for interview only to introduce them to fake drug marketing business.
I'm doing this not only because these companies waste people's time, energy and T-fair going to such interviews, but also because most of these scammers extort money from hapless job seekers thereby making their suffering times two.
Imagine a scammer extorting #10,500 from a graduate who have been unemployed for years, not to talk of the transport fare wasted going to such fruitless interviews or job chat as they usually call it.
Some people even borrow money to pay these sheep in wolves clothing, who promise them heaven on earth. Some will tell you that you will make half a million within 1 month and all that. If you're not careful, you will take a loan that you will not be able to repay thus causing embarrassment and lack of rest of mind. An unemployed person should have only himself to worry about, not having debts also.

So I believe that if we are properly guided, we will not fall into the hands of these scammers.
Having said that, there are ways by which one can identify a fake or scam interview invitation and there fore avoid such waste of time and money. The good thing is that most of their messages come in the same format, so you will know its fake!

1. The message does not bear a company name: most of these scammers won't include their names on the message you will receive. All you will see are the address, the time and date and a phone number. A genuine company will not hide its identity from a potential employee.

2. The message will say "interview/job briefing": whatever job briefing means I don't know!
3. You will see a code or reference: something like "HR=0056" or "REF=002". This is an indication of the code number of the person who invited you to the "job briefing".
4. It will contain a phone number: this is the number of your referer. Most genuine companies don't give phone numbers.
5. You will see HR Admin in the message instead of company name
6. If you call their number, they will be reluctant to give info on the company.


And pls, ignore those people sharing job flyers on the streets, and those ones they paste on walls. Those are scammers and some ritualists too. And also most of these so called agencies are avenues for duping unsuspecting job seekers. Pls shine your eyes well well.
I will post the names of some of these fake companies/ agencies later.

Pls if you have any experiences inthe hands of these scammers kindly share it here so that others can learn and avoid them too. Thank you

Cheers!
