Scam/419 jobs in Nigeria

It has come to our notice, the increasing number os fake jobs been posted both in the newspapers and also circulated around as jobs.

Most of these scammers pose as consulting firms, or companies. After application you would be invited for an interview, where you would be told to pay money for processing, ranging from 500 naira to about 2000 naira, after which you will be told to go home, and expect to be called if you pass the interview. Each week, they might do this to about 100 to 200 candidates!!! Imagine how much they are making.

The big shots would call you and tell you that you have been offered a job. Probably an oil company job, and tell you that you need to pay some money to their lawyer to help you process your documents. These ones charge as much as 5000 naira to 10,000 naira. After paying that money, you won’t hear from them again.

  3. I have got a offer to work in Nigeria, for Schlumberger, then they asked me to contact this “attorney”
    barristerikorochambers@gmail.com
    Now, he is saying I need a Overseas Travelers Insurance Policy but the preferred insurance company by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) is NIGER INSURANCE PLC (NIG). NIGER INSURANCE is a Nigerian government owned insurance company located in Nigeria, so I have to look for their agent in my location (couldn’t find any) or they will help me to get it there.. in Nigeria. Because I couldn’t find anything, they said they can help me and I have to send 1000 USD. I asked if I could get a SOS International Insurance, he said: As regards the insurance please note that the required insurance policy by the Nigerian immigration service is Niger insurance.. it means.. I should have to send that money.
    What should I do?

  7. Sometime in july 2012, a mail was sent to me through my mail box by jobrapido. When I opened the mail, I came accross one of scammers whose name was toteliousconsult@yahoo.com. The said email claimed to be a recruiting consultant who works in conjunction with Total Nigeria. That they are agent who are premitted to offer HSE, rig overhauling, pipline welding and others in oil and gas companies both Port Harcourt and Lagos. That, after the said trainings, successful trainees would be attached and sent any of the Total sites for immediate employment of which 20,000. 00 was asked to pay for registration into a GTB through the acc/ no 5075808921820 with a name Dr Ime Friday Umoh. A venue for the training was also given in their mails. Actually I had deposited the above mentioned amount into their bank acc, waiting the training day to arrieve but to my sock, when I arrieved the venue, is there it was discovered is scamer. Meanwhile, they have changed the name to zenithoilandgasconsult@yahoo.com and winoracconsult. I do not know the one they are using now. So beware.
