1. Accredited Centers

Why this one might seem harmless, it’s still a scam. As soon as NYSC registration is getting closer, some Cyber Cafe owner in a bid to advertise their registration center will tell you their center is accredited.

The take advantage of prospective Corps members because this is their first time of doing NYSC registration. There are no accredited centers for NYSC registration. You can do it anywhere you wish. Please don’t fall for those people trying to play you. See also: Top 10 Things All Prospective Corps Members Should Do Now

2. NYSC Direct Posting

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 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.

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.

The next thing is they block you and then you have just been scammed. Do not fall for these hungry people by opting in for direct posting or whatever. See also: Top 10 Legit Work From Home Jobs In Nigeria For Corpers

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.

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. One 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

NYSC Change Of Posting is what they call it. 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, it’s none of Lola’s business, 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. Biometric Verification Payment

This one is even funnier that no 7 because it’s lame and a pure lie. How can you ask a prospective Corps members to pay you especially for biometric verification? Or let me say how can you as a Prospective Corps member pay for such money.

Biometric verification is part of the NYSC registration and it does not attract any extra fee. So next time someone comes to you and ask you to pay for thumbprint, tell him or her that Lola says he or she should kiss your ass. See also: Top 10 Security Hacks For Corps Members During NYSC

9. Special Centre

We know about special centers for WAEC but bringing that to dupe prospective Corps members is a sin. This kind of scammers will tell you that they have a special center for the registration.

The last case I heard, the prospective corps member paid N12,000 for special center registration. Please do not fall for this ridiculous scam method. You should be smarter than this.

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.

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. See also: Top 10 Chilling Facts About NYSC You Don’t Know
