Department of State Services (DSS) Denies Ongoing Recruitment In The Service, Saying “It’s a Scam”

BENIN CITY – The Department of State Services (DSS) has refuted the ongoing information circulating on the social media that the service is currently recruiting people secretly.

The Service Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya in a statement declared, “We wishes to inform the public that the DSS is not currently carrying out any recruitment exercise”.

The statement read, “This clarification has become necessary in view of desperate efforts by fraudsters to scam unsuspecting job seekers or their sponsors”.

“The public should note that recruitment into the Service is never done on monetary basis. Instead, it is guided by merit and transparency. Beneficiaries undergo series of screening and vetting processes and procedures through which only the best, produced by these, is taken”, it stated.

Peter Afunanya warned members of the public to be mindful of attempts by fraudulent persons and groups to fleece them of their hard earned money, “They should rather report to the Service any suspicion in this regard”.

Those engaged in misleading acts of raising false recruitment alerts or defrauding others are warned to desist from such or be ready to face the music. So far, the Service is sustaining efforts on clamping down on the activities of fake job syndicates illegally using its name to deceive and scam the public.
