The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on Sunday paraded a four-man syndicate involved in defrauding desperate job seekers of their hard earned money.

Speaking while prading the suspects at the NSCDC's office in Abuja, Public Relations Officer, Mr. Emmanuel Okeh insisted that the Service does not use information technology (IT) nor online advertisement, sales of forms nor scratch cards for its recruitment.

The NSCDC Spokesman called on those seeking enlistment into the Corps to disregard calls asking qualified applicants to apply for recruitment through consultants as it has no intentions to do so.

Those paraded are: Mr. Wilfred Ahetuamen (Edo), Mr. Ikechukwu John (Enugu), Mrs. Grace Benedict (Enugu state) and one Miss Rachael Agirshi whose account was used in defrauding one Mr. Bojor- Bobori, an indigene of Cross River of N280,OOO under the guise of recruiting and offering him lucrative position in the service.

Mr. Okeh assured the " Corps will not rest on its oars until it unravel those denting its image."

The NSCDC SpokesmAn disclosed that over 560 suspects had been arrested so far, with 135 cases successfully tried and prosecuted, while others are undergoing prosecution nationwide.

Meanwhile, NSCDC has dissociated itself from the various internet sites designed with its logo by fraudsters with the sole aim of fleecing desperate applicants seeking job placement into the Service.

“We accordingly wish to caution the public to be wary of scams and fraudsters."

Mr. Okeh hinted that intensive efforts to track down those behind the operation of the internet site used for defrauding unsuspecting job seekers was on ground,

The Corps spokesman told newsmen that the criminal activity of the syndicates who use AMAC Area 10 and the prominent Transcorp Hotel as their hideout came to the fore when the victim who perceived fraud hinted an intelligence and anti- fraud unit officer of his ordeal.

According to Okeh, the principal suspect Mr. Ahetuamen who was arrested in the early hour of Sunday alongside his collaborators who posed as the Personal Assistant to the Commandant General, while his girl friend, Miss Grace Benedict who carries out the transaction via telephone, posed as the Private Secretary to the CG.

On his part, the victim who called on President Goodluck Jonathan to look into the plight of Jobless Nigerians confirmed that he made the payment in three installments and still had a balance of two hundred to pay before his discovery.

The suspects, who claimed to be property agents did not deny the allegation but begged to be pardoned to be pardoned as he was financially bankrupt and wanted to make quick money.

According to the Corps spokesman, the case has been handed over to the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Crime Commission (ICPC) for further investigation.

“We accordingly wish to caution the public to be wary of scams and fraudsters."

The NSCDC urged all persons who come into contact with these imposters to immediately report them to the nearest law enforcement agents
