We are in December and many local scammers are looking for people that will fund their accounts for their extravagant life.

Don't fall victim of this.

This time, the scammers are using the name of the Nigerian Army to defraud people and the army is warning the public about this.

In a statement by its spokesman, Brigadier General Sani Usman, the Nigerian Army said its attention had been drawn to activities of a fraudulent syndicate that had placed fake adverts to deceive unsuspecting members of the public on alleged commissioning into the Nigerian Army.

"The group specifically used Facebook and other Social Media platforms to entice interested persons and thereafter solicited for token payments into a certain bank account.

The Nigerian Army wants the public to also report such fraudulent groups to the nearest security agency or better still, contact the information Nigerian Army Call Centre on 193 using any of the networks.
