The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says criminal elements are claiming to be recruiting invigilators on behalf of the Board for the 2021 UTME/DE.
Fabian Benjamin, Head, Public Affairs, said the scammers are requesting the payment of N5,000 acceptance fee payable to the syndicate.
The spokesman noted that the term “invigilator” is alien to the Board’s operations and advised the public to be wary of anybody purporting there are vacancies to be filled.
JAMB said any process for recruitment for permanent or ad-hoc staff would be announced and done transparently.
Benjamin advised Nigerians not to lose their hard-earned resources on the premise of securing non-existing jobs with the examination body.
“Many dubious individuals have cultivated the habit of placing different kinds of advertorials for one service or another in the name of the Board without authorization”, he added.
The statement appealed to those with information about the fraudsters to report them to security agencies.
