The latest job scam in circulation is the Federal Civil Service Commission massive job vacancies which emanated from WhatsApp broadcast, announcing 23 positions on http://www.fedcivilservice.gov.ng/.
A click on that link will show you: “The Nigerian immigration service Online recruitment 2015 process has been completed.”
The press release which announced the fake job vacancies was purportedly signed by Mustapha L. Sulaiman, Director (PRS), For: Honourable Chairman.
I got the same broadcast from a friend, but when I critically looked at the website where applicants were directed to download the Federal Civil Service Commission application form, I found out that it was a domain for the 2015 Nigeria Immigration Service recruitment which was conducted during the last days of the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Here is the press release announcing the fake Federal Civil Service Commission vacancies in circulation
