Recruitment scam rocks NIMASA

The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) has said that a web-based syndicate is using its name to defraud unsuspecting Nigerians by inviting employment applications from the public to fill vacancies in the agency.
“The Agency dissociates itself from the unauthorized syndicate and all internet related activities of the group including the payment for employment forms and processing fees”, NIMASA said in a public notice yesterday.

The agency said that its recruitment exercises are always advertised in the Nigerian dailies, the agency’s newsletter and website.
“Any person or group of persons patronizing this unauthorized syndicate do so at his or her own risk as the agency has not commissioned any persons/consultants to conduct recruitment exercise on its behalf at this time.
“Members of the public are also informed that there is no organization or agency under the Federal Ministry of Transport known as The ‘Nigerian Maritime Security Agency”, the NIMASA public notice stated.
