The attention of NYSC Management has been drawn to a fraudulent advertorial making the rounds on the social media, purported to have been issued by one Arua Ibiam, who claims to be on the staff list of the National Youth Service Corps.
The said advertorial which bears the NYSC logo, with the sole aim to deceive the gullible ones so as to part with their money assures Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) of the possibility of influencing or changing their states of deployment to preferred choices which of course must be at a cost.

The management wishes to caution all the PCMs, and indeed the general public to disregard the advertorial, for it is the handiwork of fraudsters, designed to scam unsuspecting ones.
