NNPC Raises Alarm Over Recruitment Scam, Warns Applicants

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation [NNPC] has raised alarm over an ongoing recruitment scam perpetrated by some fraudsters.

The Corporation stated that “some fraudulent persons [are] using various dubious means ranging from text messages, social media platforms and forged letters to invite unsuspecting members of the public for job interviews to invite unsuspecting members of the public for job interviews in a purported recruitment exercise by the Corporation.” 

This was contained in a statement issued by the Petroleum Corporation in Abuja and made available to Elombah.com.

In to the statement, NNPC warned categorically that it is “not recruiting and won’t demand payment in any form for any job placement”.

NNPC promised to “advertise all vacant positions whenever it is ready to embark on a recruitment exercise.”

It, therefore, warned “that anyone who entertains such invitations or deals with peddlers of such invitations does so at his or her own risk.”
