Job seekers lose N3.5m to fraudsters in Delta

14 September 2015, 16:02

Asaba - Some persons seeking employment across Delta State under the State Employment and Expenditure for Result (SEEFOR) have fallen victim to fraudsters, Punch reports.

The fraudsters allegedly issued employment letters job seekers after swindling them of an estimated sum of N3.5 million

The fraudsters had asked desperate job seekers to pay some amount of money into the First Bank of Nigeria Plc Account Number 3029362065 for the purpose of securing employment for them in SEEFOR.

The Director of Information, Delta State Ministry of Information, Paul Osahor, said in a statement he issued on Friday the SEEFOR project did not require any payment by job seekers.

Osahor maintained that SEEFOR never commissioned agents to receive payment from employment seekers.

Some of the victims of the scammer said they were issued employment letters after they paid N60 000 each to them through the First Bank account number.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Celestina Kalu, said that efforts were being put together to arrest the fraudsters, saying the state Police Command had received a petition from the state Ministry of Information about the activities of the fraudsters.
