Shell wary of fraudelent schemes

07 July 2014, 18:30

Lagos - Shell Nigeria has disassociated itself from communication suggesting it had mandated an unnamed organization to conducted recruitment on its behalf.- 

“There have been recent incidents that have occurred with organisations falsely pretending to recruit on behalf of Shell or by people claiming to work for, or be affiliated to, Shell.

These propositions notify individuals that their qualifications were found suitable to work as an employee (local or expatriate) for Shell and solicit the transfer of significant sums of money to pay for work permits, insurance policies,” the company stated.

Shell maintained neither Shell nor any of the organisations that recruit on its behalf never ask for any money or payments from applicants.

The oil giant thus informed the public that the communications were fraudulent and did not originate from Shell or Shell's recruitment process.

It said salient points of such communications are that they came from non-Shell e-mail addresses. The use of English is poor, at some stage, money is requested.

“We recommend that you do not respond to unsolicited business propositions and/or offers from people with whom you are unfamiliar.

Do not disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know. If you receive such proposals, we would advise you to contact your local police and provide them with all information you may have from the senders,” the company warned.
