According to a statement issued by the Commission and signed by its Media Consultant, Mr Folu Olamiti, the syndicate behind the scam, which is impersonating the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, has been sending fake letters to several potential victims offering them various political positions they could apply for. The positions offered include appointment as Ministers, Special Advisers/Assistants, Ambassadors, Chairmen and Members of Boards of Federal Government parastatals. A sample of the fake invitation letter reads as follows: …You’re directed by the secretary to government of the federation to submit your CV with recent passport photograph including GSM telephone numbers, email via: [email protected] . and apply for any of the listed federal appointment i.e Ministerial, Ambassadorial, Special Adviser/ Assistant, Board chairman/secretary/ Member. Best Wishes. Dr(Mrs). Blessing Ikoreh JP(PRESS UNIT -OSGF). TEL: 0903 3021866.” It is believed that those who fall for the bait are then requested to pay specific sums of money to process their applications and arrange favour to obtain their desired positions. The ICPC statement therefore warned the public to beware of such unsolicited messages. It also advised anybody who received the message and has paid any sums of money into any specified bank account to forward details of the transaction to the nearest Police Station or ICPC office or scan same to the Commission’s email: [email protected] or call any of the following toll free lines: 08031230280, 08031230281, 08031230282, 07056990190 and 07056990190]]>
