The Department of State Services (DSS) has cautioned Nigerians to be mindful of persons requesting money from them to get recruited into the Service.
The DSS said this while reacting to reports that some fraudulent Nigerians were extorting money from job seekers with the assurance of getting them enlisted into the Service.
DSS/SSS is Not Recruiting
The attention of the State Security Service (SSS) has once again been drawn to the illegal activities of some fraudulent persons and groups who extort money from unsuspecting members of the public with a promise to employ them into the Service.
The Service wishes to state for the umpteenth time that it is not currently employing or carrying out any form of exercise in that regard.
The public may note that in the event that the Service recruits, it does not charge money for that purpose.
The public is therefore, advised to be wary of these fraudulent persons and groups whose stock in trade has remained the spread of falsehood and engagement in impersonation.
The Service further warns that it will, in accordance with the law, not hesitate to deal decisively with anyone caught in the act of impersonating it.
While efforts have been sustained at uncovering the network of these fraudsters, the public is enjoined to pass relevant information relating to this to the nearest Service Command.
