The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has cautioned job-seekers to shun any advertisement claiming it is recruiting.

In a statement on Monday, Johannes Wojuola, special assistant to the executive chairman, FIRS, advised the public to be vigilant and not to deal with scam artists who pose as recruitment agents.

The statement added that FIRS would take all necessary legal action against any platform found to be engaged in such fraudulent advertisement.

“On repeated occasions, the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has cautioned the general public to be vigilant and circumspect not to deal with scam artists who pose as recruitment agents for the service and collect huge sums of money from unsuspecting victims with the promise to provide them employment,” the statement reads.

“The service wishes to emphatically state that it is not conducting any recruitment at the moment, and importantly that it does not conduct recruitment exercises through back door channels.

“Should the FIRS plan to expand its workforce and consequently seek to recruit competent hands to carry out the task of revenue mobilisation for the nation, the public can rest assured that the service would follow appropriate channels and processes in doing so; including advertisements on public channels of communication, followed by rigorous screening, interviews and examination exercises.

“The FIRS also wishes to caution media practitioners not to allow their mediums to be used as platforms for publishing unauthorised fake application processes and recruitment portals that hoodwink the unsuspecting public.
