The United States has warned Nigerians to be alert over ongoing visa fraud in the country.
Nigerians have been warned to be vigilant in order not to fall victim to US visa fraudsters.
The warning was given by the U.S. Mission to Nigeria while drawing the general public’s attention to a fake ‘press release’ claiming to offer a new type of work visa to Nigerians.
Scammers and fraudsters, according to the statement, circulate this phoney information that the new work visa applies to Nigerian citizens aged 40-55.
But in a statement released by the US Mission in the country, there is nothing of such and so Nigerians are advised to be on guard so they don’t fall victims.
“The U.S. Embassy in Abuja and Consulate in Lagos is warning Nigerians not to fall victims to the scam. It is the same old scam, but in fresh packaging – don’t become a victim! If you have questions about whether visa information is legitimate, please refer only to official sources”
