01 October 2014, 08:38

Abuja - The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has alerted the public against fraudulent social media accounts in the name of the Corps Marshal and Chief Executive Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi.

This was contained in a document obtained by this publication in Abuja.

“Our attention has been drawn to several fraudulent Facebook accounts in the name of the Corps Marshal and Chief Executive Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, announcing recruitment into the FRSC and demanding money from applicants," the agency stated.

"This is to warn the public that the FRSC is not currently carrying out any recruitment exercise and the Corps does not demand money from applicants for them to be recruited into the Corps,” the Corps added.

It added that whenever the Corps was undertaking any recruitment, it would be formally announced in the public media including the FRSC website and applicants directed to FRSC formations nationwide to pick recruitment forms.

“We do not ask anybody to pay any money online or give any telephone number and private account numbers for payment of recruitment fees."

FRSC said it was aware that some crooks even demanded money for "waiver of training after recruitment" that the applicants after paying certain amount was asked to start work immediately, as they would not have to go for training.

"This is not our practice.”

It said the corps with other security agencies were also on the trail of these criminals are in the process of tracking down those engaged in the scam.
