SCAM ON ROGUE WEBSITES IN CONNECTION WITH QUESTIONS/ANSWERS OF THE FORTHCOMING MAY/JUNE 2014 WEST AFRICAN SENIOR SCHOOL CERTIFICATE EXAMINATION (WASSCE).
The attention of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), has again been drawn to the scam on some rogue websites seeking to lure gullible persons, particularly candidates sitting the forthcoming May/June 2014 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), into believing that they can obtain authentic questions/ answers for the examination in advance.
Such scams are not new, as over the years, old or fake examination question papers are usually circulated and sold by fraudsters, as authentic current ones, at ridiculous or give-away prices. The Council, however, first got wind of the internet type of the scam in 2011 and wishes to state categorically, that the claims on these rogue websites that authentic question papers or answers for its examinations can be procured in advance are completely false.
The Council, therefore, wishes to advise the general public, particularly candidates sitting the forthcoming May/June 2014 WASSCE (Private), their parents and guardians to be wary of these scams either via the internet or otherwise.
