FRAUD ALERT: Advice to Desperate Admission Seekers

Be wise! Desist from some websites purporting to be ‘admission givers’. These unscrupulous elements in the society are fraudsters ready to fleece of unsuspecting admission seekers their hard-earned money.


Several “desperate” admission seekers have lost billions of naira to fraudsters who use the internet to dupe them. Studies have shown that the group of people that is most susceptible to internet fraud is the desperate or the greedy. While the desperate would go to any length to get what they want, including parting with the little resources at their disposal at any point in time, the greedy ones are forever obsessed with the acquisitive tendency until they are dispossessed, in the process, of huge financial and/or investment assets.

Cloned websites which scammers present as that of most sought-after Nigerian Universities are now live as Post-UTME of various public universities are about to start. An unfortunate scenario is currently playing out whereby  some candidates have been made to part with as much as N25, 000 each ostensibly to be eligible to take part in the post-UTME screening test of some universities! On this phantom site, the applicants were told that their respective institutions of choice had released the cut-off mark for the 2015/2016 admission exercise and advised to start “processing” their applications.

Note of Warning to Admission Seekers.

No public varsities in Nigeria will ask you to pay “processing fee” for admission. The only pre-admission charge is very meager and it is for registration for the post-UTME test. It’s always between N1,500 – N5,000. And in any case, it will not be paid into an individual’s personal bank account.

It is obvious that it is this allure and desperation by admission seekers to enter the University that scammers have continually exploited.  However, prospective candidates and their parents and guardians should not allow this allure to becloud their sense of reasoning to the extent of falling cheaply for fraudsters!
