Beware of Fake NIS Invitations


The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has sounded a cautionary note to the public and particularly to job seekers, about the rising activities of scammers issuing deceitful recruitment invitations. The admonition highlights a spate of fake invitation letters circulating, purportedly for recruitment into the NIS.

Dr Adedotun Aridegbe, the Deputy Comptroller of Immigration and Service Public Relations Officer, issued the official statement in Abuja, elucidating that legitimate invitations for recruitment can exclusively be procured from the NIS’s official recruitment portal: Applicants are required to log in with their respective registration details and phone numbers to gain access to the authentic invitation letters.

Emphasising the legitimate recruitment process, Aridegbe stated, “The Service does not extend private invitations to individual applicants aside from the ones accessible on the official NIS website.” He further warned, “Any other forms of invites, regardless of the medium or source directed straight to applicants, are counterfeit.”

The attention of the acting Comptroller General of the NIS, Caroline Wura-Ola Adepoju, pcc+, fsi, has been keenly drawn to these deceptive tactics. She appeals to the public to remain vigilant and to outrightly dismiss these spurious invitations, which are expressly designed to exploit the unwary.

For genuine updates and information on the activities of the NIS, individuals are directed to the Service’s official platforms on social media: Twitter – @nigimmigration and Instagram -@ingimmigration, along with SERVICOM. The public is urged to stay informed and be cautious of where and how they respond to recruitment advertisements.
