HELP Please! Could This Be A Job Interview Scam? by Dvin(m): 10:07pm On Aug 26, 2020
I just got this message for an interview in Lagos Health Service Commission i applied for but am scared it could be a scam considering the construction of the message.
It reads:

Consequent upon your online Application for employment @ Health Service Commission, you are hereby invited for a COMPUTER BASED TEST on Sunday 30th August, 2020 at Lagos State Digital Village, Obafemi Awolowo way Ikeja, Lagos at 11.30am. pls come along with your ELECTRONIC DEVICE (phone, ipad,laptop) and NOSE MASK. Please note that the PASSWORD and the LINK would be forwarded to you on Friday, 28th August, 2020.

Why would they request that we come with our electronic gadgets for CBT?
Why should it be held on Sunday?

Brief google search showed that the entities exist. Which are the health service commission and the Lagos state digital village.

But what's off there is that the office doesn't open on Sunday according to the screenshot below.

Secondly the idea of coming with your gadget might be BC they might be expecting more people than they envisaged else that's a pointer.

In the end, check them out but observe security measures.

Yes. The testis very real. Have written mine too. The test is scheduled for different dates and time. It's lagos state government office building (lagos state digital computer village near secretariat Alausa) with security at the gate. Carry of the said gadget and make sure you charge them,and have data. It's an hour test. And sixty questions. So have no fear.
