Caught! JAMB Scammers Arrested: What You Need to Know

Learn how the police caught scammers behind fake JAMB websites and admission letters. Stay safe by knowing their tactics and protecting your details. Read on to discover how you can avoid falling victim to these scams and ensure your JAMB process is secure.

Police Bust JAMB Scam

The Nigeria Police Force recently arrested three suspects linked to fake websites for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). These websites were used to deceive candidates and create fake admission letters.

In April, the Nigeria Police Force and JAMB warned about scammers using fake websites to target candidates applying for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). Following this, the Nigeria Police Force National Cyber Crime Centre (NPF-NCCC) and JAMB partnered to fight these scams.

During a press conference at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, police and JAMB officials explained how the fake sites tricked candidates into giving their personal details, such as registration numbers, email addresses, and phone numbers. Scammers then used these details for harmful purposes.

How the Scammers Operated

The suspects, Effa Leonard Mpama, Ibang Ernest Jerome, and Eshiet Odotukana Benson, all in their thirties, were part of a group that accessed JAMB’s restricted systems. They altered and deleted genuine admission letters, creating fake ones to secure admissions and NYSC mobilization. These actions compromised the entire JAMB admission process.

Forensic analysis was crucial in discovering a syndicate based in Imo State behind the creation of fake domains and associated websites. The suspects used sophisticated methods to carry out their schemes.

Steps to Protect Yourself

  1. Verify Websites: Always check the authenticity of JAMB-related websites. Look for official logos and contact details.
  2. Keep Personal Details Safe: Never share your registration numbers, email addresses, or phone numbers on suspicious sites.
  3. Report Suspicious Activity: If you encounter a suspicious website or receive dubious admission letters, report it to JAMB or the police.
  4. Stay Informed: Keep updated with official announcements from JAMB and the police to stay aware of new scams and how to avoid them.

The Nigeria Police Force and JAMB are committed to protecting candidates from online scams. Their continued efforts aim to make cyberspace safer for everyone.
