NYSC issues warning to Direct Posting/Redeployment Agents, threatens to arrest and hand them over to law enforcement agency for prosecution.
The management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) through its social media has issued a serious warning to direct posting/redeployment fraudsters.
According to a post published on the NYSC Official Facebook Page, the scheme stated it has no link with any direct posting/redeployment agent.
NYSC also appealed to Prospective Corps Members not to “fall fall prey to the antics of fraudsters who capitalise on the innocence and ignorance to defraud them”.
Below is the full statement;
The attention of NYSC Management has been drawn to an online advert created by fraudsters and mischief makers aimed at deceiving and extorting Prospective Corps Members. In the guise of helping them to secure choice states for their National Service and also post them to organisations of their choice with the caption; REDEPLOY OR RELOCATE TO ANY FAVOURITE STATE AND DIRECT POSTING/REDPLOYMENT.
The Management of the Scheme want to use this medium to inform all prospective Corps Members and other stakeholders to completely disregard such adverts as they don’t have any link with NYSC in any form.
It is very pertinent and instructive to state that anyone found to be part of such criminal advert placement will be handed over to law enforcement agents for prosecution without delay.
Prospective Corps Members are advised to disregard such information or advert circulating round, as it is devoid of facts, unfounded and misleading.
We want to appeal to all Prospective Corps Members and other members of the public not to fall prey to the antics of fraudsters who capitalise on the innocence and ignorance of the prospective Corps Members to defraud them. Be warned.
