- Says it is activities of fraudsters
The warning below :
“The attention of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), has again been drawn to the proliferation of fake social media accounts in the names of Senior Customs Officers purportedly auctioning assorted seized goods, and in some cases conducting recruitment exercise into the Service.
“The miscreants are now advancing their nefarious activities with false testimonies by supposed beneficiaries of auction sales, thanking the Customs Public Relations Officer, DC, Joseph Attah and other senior Customs Officers for their “facilitation”.
This press statement was signed and made available to Journalists by DC Attah, who openly cautioned the public against patronising such fraudsters.
He warned; “The Service wishes to categorically state that the fake information circulating in the social media did not emanate from NCS, as social media has never been a platform used for serious things like auction, recruitment or award of contracts in the Service.
“Members of the public are therefore advised to disregard the purported testimonies via pseudo social media accounts.
For the avoidance of doubt, NCS e-auction official link is app1.trade.gov.ng/eauction
“The Service official website and other social media handles are:
*Facebook page: Nigeria Customs Service
Radio: ncbn 106.7fm
TV: ncbn via startime channel 193.
” The Service by this notice hereby advises members of the public to be wary of this fraudsters, who are out to defraud gullible Nigerians as efforts and resources are being fully mobilised to track and arrest them to face the wrath of the law.
Be guided please.”.
