EFCC 2016 Recruitment Application for BSc, OND, HND M.Sc is 419 Con - Disregard it

Public Notice: The EFCC 2016 Recruitment Application for BSc, OND, HND is a 419 Con. It is a big scam. It is well observed that the on-going Police Recruitment will see over 1 million application, just like the way the Navy recruitment saw over 300,000 candidates applied online,  but for the new EFCC recruitment posts? It is a 419 (con, scam) organized by fraudsters to mislead the incautious general public. To make matters worse, some Nigerian bloggers posted it on their blogs all in the name of pulling high traffic to their blogs without doing their research to confirm the truth about the recruitment. 

It is believed that you may have seen the so-called EFCC advertisement for job vacancies/recruitment going viral on Blogs, websites and social media like the Facebook and Twitter and even Linkedin? We advice you not to fall for the cheap 419 scam. If you live in Abuja, you will notice that the EFCC Head Office is in Wuse II, and NOT in Garki Abuja as the scammers and unreasoning bloggers have published. The scammer requested that all handwritten applications should be sent to this fake address which is P.M.B. 166, Garki Abuja. Beware. Check the “fake” advert below:
