Beware of requests for submission of CVs for consideration and appointment into govt positions - SGF
| July 02, 2009
The office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation has warned the general public over fake advertisements for non-existent govt. positions aimed at defrauding people. They also warned Nigerians about text or e-mail messages that invite them to submit their information for employment. A statement from the office said, âIt has come to the notice of the Office to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, that some fraudulent persons have been contacting individuals in the country requesting them to submit their Curriculum Vitaea for consideration and appointment into non-existing positions. âThe Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, wishes to disassociate itself from such requests and to advise all Nigerians to ignore such requests and immediately report such cases and those who contacted them to security agencies nearest to them foe appropriate action. âMembers of the public should also note that this e-mail address used by the persons engaged in this fraudulent activity has nothing to do with the SGF Office and should not be used for any form of correspondent with the SGF."

Humm! The office of the SGF seems rooted in ancient rather than modern style of admistration. The ancient approach would have been to inform the public to beware. But the modern approach would have been to use "sting operation" to apprehend the fraudsters.

Thereafter the general public would be informed of their activities whilst prosecuting them. Like Adejoke wrote, the registration of SIM cards makes crime fighting easy. The SGF office should be more proactive. God save Nigeria.

I am happy with the information on the activities of fraudsters concerning government appointments. I will suggest that Government should get to the root of those behind the act. I got this type of message twice by sms and even went ahead to call the phone number attached and the lady answered the call and 'confirmed' that it is true and that she is a secretary in the press unit of the office of the Secretary to FG.

The numbers used are 08108513511 on 30/08/2013 and 08161511289 on30/09/2013.
If this site is functional and the nation is serious at fighting this type of fraudulent practices, it should not be difficult (with the registration of lines before activation) to trace these individuals and bring them to book.
