Money Making Schemes Prohibited In This Jobs Section by 1forall: 12:53am On May 30, 2012
Dear Vacancy Posters,

This is a notice of zero-tolerance for money making schemes, online businesses, referral programs and all the like here in the Jobs section. If you must post such, look for the appropriate section to do so, or even better, do not post them on Nairaland.

We do not believe in 'getting rich quick' or 'very easy ways to make money' and shall not encourage it here. Therefore we shall no longer give the benefit of doubt to such topics and they shall be promptly removed.

We however shall continue to support and highlight genuine vacancy posts and adverts in accordance with the forum/section rules.

Thank you wink

All d HMO adv on nairaland are scams. when they call u for the so called interview they will start sweetalking about how u need to be entrepreneurial and all those hogwash long and short of the matter they ask u pay 8000 naira to buy one useless license or whatever its called, the lesson of my story is that all they are out to do is to fleece u off ur money. They dont have anytin to offer.

Thanks Folu. We keep saying here that job seekers need to apply good judgement before sending their information to unknown recipients. In my view, its not difficult to spot these scams, many are quite obvious. A lot of advise is shared in these posts below:

It is a welcome development, however there 's people with good intentions here. my advice is we can't take because of some unscrupulous elements in this forum and shut the door against umemployed nigerians seeking one way or the other to meet up. I think it's the sole responsibility of the moderator to screen every post being made here and possibly delete or flush out any suspected thread immediately and promote anyone he sees as a good money making idea/ opportunity to the neccessary page. I really give credit to the moderator(s)so far just that he needs to improve. Due to the economic situation of the country, the fact will not be denied that many Nigerians visit this forum looking for job.

Moderators will rather err on the side of caution than propagate misleading/false/potentially fraudulent information. Money making schemes clearly do not belong to the Jobs/Vacancies section and obvious scams shall not be promoted.

With the alarming level of poverty we have, a lot will keep happening and people will keep fabricating ways to stay above the waters.Howbeit dubious or clean!
it is left to the judgement of individuals to take right decisions against being duped.
I experienced one. Like most people say; on HMO, Health job vacancy scams. I couldn't get any reliable info on the company on-line. So i decided to honour the invite for interview. As the bike dropped me. I inquired from people around about the company and i got funnny responses. i couldn't even bring myself to entering the scruffy apartment. I jumped on the bike and whiff, i disappeared! it will be sheer waste of time. they will want to milk me. i wouldn't fall for that with the level of understanding i have.

By the same token, a friend of mine got invited to an Health Related Org. And it turned out to be positive.They are real and doing fine!What is key is, use your judgement and be open. If someone ask you to pay, decline!.

I just posted a vacancy too that i believe qualified people can benefit from. People can also subject the post to same scrutiny! We must remain open. If you close your eyes for a bad person to pass. You may not know when a good person will equally pass.

Why it si even more rampant in nairaland is because of the oppotunity to post without restrained and that is why i think it is high time that post made in this section is censored. My 2kobo

I don't know why our youths are so desperate about changing jobs rather than maintaining the little 1 they have and believing God for something better to come their way. If after all this warning you still go ahead and pay money to get a job then you have allow their cham to get hold of you. I attended one of them and i could see the rate at which youths especially from Nairaland rush to get the form. I wept bitterly because after the preaching i came back to my office and check if i could figure out their company from the web. But i could not. that profs me right that it was all scam.
Thanks for sharing.

i couldnt agree less wt u guys ve said bt still yet, like someone suggested, we cant close our eyes in order for a bad person to pass thereby missing d good person as well. For instance, @ a time i was so desperate i need a means make money; be it a regular job,biz or just anything, i was sendg my contacts any1 dat cld send me any info, honouring invitation for seminars. Most of them seemed like scams,some seemed real bt difficult to work, bt then one day i came across one dat got me excited, i got involved & since then i ve watched my life changed 4 beta.

So now tell me, what if i ve looked completely away. calling everything scams wtout even finding out.

I'm sure so many nairalanders r doing d same thing i did hoping to find something worthwhile, i encourage them to keep on d fight bt pls as u r doing dat be very careful bc believe it or not d scams here r much more dan d real offers!

I owe it 2 dis forum 4 what i am now.

I wish u all d best!

From the terrible English, I knew it was a scam and I am also aware that one doesn't need medical certificate to get American visa. I called the doctor and was informed his medical certificate is the only one accepted by the embassy and that I needed to pay him N50K for a certificate. This is to alert the public so no one will fall for this scam
