The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Management has warned the public to ignore the fake NYSC Trust Fund (NYSCTF) advertisement making rounds, especially on social media.
NYSC Spokesperson, Eddy Megwa disclosed this in a statement issued on Saturday, October 7, 2023.
The statement read in part:
“NYSC TRUST FUND (NYSCTF) 2023: BOOST YOUR BUSINESS DREAMS….
“Management wishes to state emphatically that the advertisement is not from the National Youth Service Corps. It is the handiwork of fraudsters bent on defrauding unsuspecting Nigerians, particularly serving and ex-Corps Members of their resources.
“The NYSC Trust Fund is still awaiting Mr President’s assent. Therefore the existence of an NYSC Portal and link to register for the fund is only a ruse. When the Trust Fund is passed into Law, modalities to access the fund shall be officially made known to Nigerians through the print and electronic media as well as NYSC official handles in social media, among others.
“Please, do not fall prey to fraudsters”.
