NYSC Debunks Redeployment of ‘Corpers’ on Fraudulent Portals
The management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has debunked purported redeployment exercise and online adverts created by fraudsters and mischief-makers aimed at deceiving and extorting prospective Corps members in the guise of helping them to secure choice state for their National Service.
Some of the portals claim that they provide services for “Redeployment and Relocation of NYSC Members Favourite States and Direct Posting to Choice Organisations”
In a statement sent to PRNigeria, the Management of Scheme warned prospective Corps Members and other stakeholders to be wary of such portals and disregard such adverts, as they don’t have any link with NYSC in any form.
“It is very pertinent and instructive to state that anyone found to be part of such criminal advert placement will be handed over to law enforcement agents for prosecution without delay.
“Prospective Corps Members are advised to disregard such information or advert circulating round, as it is devoid of facts, unfounded and misleading.
“We want to appeal to all Prospective Corps Members and other members of the public not to fall prey to the antics of fraudsters who capitalise on the innocence and ignorance of the prospective corps members to defraud them.”
Meanwhile, the management of NYSC has also observed with dismay the penchant by some people to post information to the unsuspecting public, particularly prospective Corps members, as though such information is emanating from the NYSC official platforms.
The earlier release by a phantom NYSC website announcing the postponement of online registration for Prospective Corps Members did not emanate from the Scheme.
Members of the public are advised to glean information only from authentic NYSC social media platforms in order to guard against being misled.
