The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has warned prospective 2016 Batch ‘A’ corps members to be wary of the activities of some hackers requesting them to go and check their states of deployment online.
A statement from the Management in Abuja explained that these fraudsters refer their victims to a link requesting them to enter their login details as well as choices made during their online registration.
It described the so-called “link” as the handiwork of cyber criminals and should therefore be disregarded.
“Prospective Corps members are particularly warned not to make payments for posting or change of posting as that is clearly the motive of the cyber criminals”, it added.
The statement further informed prospective Corps members that posting to states of deployment has not commenced, but will be done at the appropriate time in line with laid down processes.
“Management will inform prospective Corps members as soon as their posting letters are ready for printing online or delivery to their various institutions of graduation”, it concluded.
