The Board and Management of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) hereby notifies the general public of the activities of fraudsters extorting unsuspecting job seekers under the pretense of getting them jobs in the Service.
Already, these criminally-minded persons have defrauded many innocent Nigerians of their hard-earned money through this illegal scheme. Although some of the perpetrators of this illegal job racketeering have been arrested, the Service wishes to dissociate itself from this recruitment scam.
The Service also wishes to reiterate that whenever it decides to carry out recruitment,adverts and notices would be placed in the appropriatechannels, and due processwould be followed. This way,no candidate would be required to pay anything to be employed into the Service.
The general public is therefore advised to be wary of carrying out any cash transactions with anybody or group of persons for the purpose of job placements in the Service, and should also report such to the appropriate authorities.
Please be guided.
