Recruitment Scam: Fake Federal Government Worker Busted

According to a report by punch newspapers, no fewer than 21 job seekers have fallen victims to a fake official of the Federal Ministry of Education, Abayomi Owoyale, after giving him money to secure teaching jobs.

Abayomi Owoyale, was said to have sold each of the letters, purportedly signed by the permanent secretary of the ministry, for N60,000. While some paid in cash, others reportedly paid into a Zenith Bank account number 2170004060, bearing Fajemisin Olakunle Owoyale. Owoyale is currently in detention at the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Yaba, Lagos State.

N60,000 is enough to start a business or enroll for an ICT course.
N60,000 is someone's 3 months salary. Ironically, the Elites are getting their children free jobs at the CBN, while children of minimum wage earns are falling victim to fraudsters. Nawa!

These are desperate times and fraudsters are churning up new schemes targeted at desperate job seekers. Do not fall victim to recruitment scams. Recruiters want your skills, not your money!

Silly and bizarre reasons people have been denied employment

Every job has some non-negotiable requirements candidates must fulfil to be considered for employment. Regardless of how qualified you are; these requirements are almost immutable. For example, you can’t work in fast food business and keep your beard. You can’t join the Nigerian police force if you are a male below 1.67m (5.6 Ft); neither can you join the Nigerian Army if you are flat footed.
