Imo Polytechnic Rector warns public to be ware of job racketeers, scammers


 

The Management of the Federal Polytechnic Nedeke, Imo State, has said the institution is not conducting any form of recruitment and warned members of the public not to be misled by racketeers whose stock-in-trade is to deceive and extort innocent people.

The warning follows an alert on the nefarious activities of internet fraudsters who are said to be scamming desperate members of the public with a promise of a job at the Polytechnic.

Michael Arimanwa, the Rector of the Institution, alerting the public of the scam in a statement regretted that the new method devised by the unscrupulous elements is to clone the social media accounts of public officers to offer fake jobs at a fee, warning the public to be wary of them.

The Rector said, “I have only one Facebook account and I have not been requesting friendship, lately. Do not become a victim. If you are already friends with me on Facebook, kindly ignore any further invitation for friendship. If you are not already my friend on Facebook, please be diligent enough to confirm by phone call, SMS, WhatsApp or any other means that I am the one requesting friendship”.

Arimanwa called on security agencies to investigate those cloning people’s Facebook accounts, using such to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.

“The Polytechnic management under me as Rector unequivocally neither sends friendship requests on Facebook nor demand money from anyone under any guise.

“Employment in the institution is purely by merit when the time comes, and no one pays any fee for it. People should avoid anyone, however, close to him, who requests money from them to be favoured with a job slot”, he concluded.
