Now, this one is very important because every batches and stream, we always come across a lot of prospective Corps members who will the victim of this scam method.

They always call it NYSC Direct Posting and if care is not taken, you may lose close to 40k-50k or more to these scammers.

They always post their numbers on social media or even message you directly promising to do a direct posting to a place of your choice. You that you have been looking to serve in Lagos or Abuja at all cost will then bite the bait.

Some will even tell you that you should pay after its done. They then ask you to send your details. Once they get hold of your details, they will rip you.

Scammers usually come to offer prospective Corps members direct posting after NYSC registration.

They will give you more than the assurance Davido gave to Chioma so that you can send money to them. Once you send them half, they will ask you to complete the half and then you pay too.

3. NYSC Relocation

This is, in fact, the most popular methods that scammers are using and they always get victims every now and then. Immediately the call-up letter is out, they will start broadcasting relocation offer. Some will message you right from our groups.

They are aware that most of you guys have been deployed to a state you don’t want and that’s the weakness they target to dupe you.

They will promise you and even give you some numbers to call and confirm. They will brag and even show you the ones they have done. If you fall for those shit and pay, they disappear and block you on WhatsApp.

Why pay so much money when you can process your relocation officially for free if you have a good reason.

4. NYSC Change Of Posting (Reprinting)

NYSC Change Of Posting is what they call it but officially, we always refer to it as reprinting. The scammer might claim to be an NYSC official in Abuja who have access to the posting letters online.

He might even claim he has somebody in Abuja who will do it immediately you pay.

They always show up after the Call-up letter is out and offer to do a change of posting for you. If you fall for this and send money to anyone, you are on your own, just know that you are a victim. See also: Top 10 Things Graduates Must Know About NYSC Before Next Mobilization

5. First Come First Serve

Another scam you should not fall for is that the NYSC registration is first come first serve. A cafe man might ask you to pay more so that he can do your own registration first, my dear reader, that is a scam.

Either you register on the first day or the last day, if you will go to Lagos, you will go to Lagos. The NYSC posting is randomly and the time of your registration matter less.

Don’t pay anyone extra money to do a fast track registration for you.

6. Sex Can Get You Anywhere

This is a misconception that most prospective corps members especially the ladies carry around. This is the belief they carry to camp and then they start sharing their body like an extension socket.

This is a scam you should not fall for. Ignore what people are telling you to get NYSC posting by having sex with officials. That will get you no favor, you will just devalue yourself and become just another mumu.

7. Pre-Mobilization Workshop fee

This is very funny and really ridiculous. Some set of people always pose as NYSC official to ask Corps members to pay a Pre-mobilization workshop fee.

They will assure them of good posting to a place of their choice if they partake in the workshop. If you are a Prospective Corps members and you are reading this, never pay any social media official any money for a workshop.

8. Evaluation Letter For Foreign-Trained

All Foreign-trained graduate have to submit an evaluation letter before they can partake in NYSC. The evaluation letter is a confidential document that contains details of all graduates from a particular Higher institution from a foreign school.

Scammers always take this advantage to offer a speedy evaluation letter or a way around it. This is a big lie. There is no way around it and only your school can provide it for you.

If anyone comes to your DM requesting you to make payment so that you can get your evaluation letter very fast. It’s a scam. Swear for such person and block them. See also: Top 10 Security Hacks For Corps Members During NYSC

9. Physical Verification

This is also for Foreign-trained graduates. For the past couple of years now, all Nigerian citizens who graduated from a foreign country have to be available for physical verification.

This is when the NYSC management will physically check all your documents and verify you.

Some scammers will tell you that they can clear you without attending the physical verification at Abuja.

This is very dangerous because you will be caught at the end of the day and you might have to wiat for several batches before you can get the chance again.

Watch out for people who might offer such services. They are scammers and they will put you in trouble.

10. Relocation And Direct Posting

I am repeating this to emphasize and to warn you to be careful because these two are the most popular and common ways out there.

Other areas to look for is age reduction and exemption letter. Any crack hole they see to scam you, they will take it.

Number safety is that if any random person message you from a group, do not attend to them and block them once they can’t explain how they got your nunber.

Also if you find yourself in any group you did not joined willingly or intentionally, leave the group and block their admin ASAP.

They will come at you on Facebook group, WhatsApp group, nairaland, Corpers Forum, direct message and more places.

Always ignore them because once they see a soft sport and you are displaying desperation, you will end up as a victim.

Now you know the Top 10 Scam Methods Prospective Corps Members Should Not Fall For. Now you are unscammable.
