The United States of America Embassy in a press release has drawn the attention of Nigerians to the new visa scam alert.
The press release stated:
“The U.S. Mission to Nigeria is drawing the general public’s attention to a fake “press release” claiming to offer a new type of work visa to Nigerians. Scammers and fraudsters circulate this phoney information that the new work visa applies to Nigerian citizens aged 40-55.
“The U.S. Embassy in Abuja and Consulate in Lagos is warning Nigerians not to fall victims to the scam.”
“It is the same old scam, but in fresh packaging – don’t become a victim!”
The Embassy then urged anyone with questions about whether visa information is legitimate, to refer only to official.
