Scammers targets JAMB candidates posting registration & phone numbers online.
It is no surprise that the number of internet fraudsters has increased in the last few days. The reason is not far-fetched as they believe that with the release of the 2021 JAMB UTME results, the number of their potential victims has increased.
Who are these fraudsters? They are a group of jobless individuals with no integrity whose sole aim is to dupe Nigerian students of as much money as they can. They usually target young, naive, and gullible O’level Exam candidates with promises of getting a better result for them, helping them secure university admission, etc.
Their commonly used trick lately is the Exam result upgrade where they claim to help candidates upgrade JAMB, NECO, WAEC results, etc.
We will like to use this medium to inform all JAMBites that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS JAMB RESULT UPGRADE!
Please, stay away from these unscrupulous elements asking you to pay a certain amount of money for your result to be upgraded. They are all scammers no matter how convincing they may sound. They even go as far as using God’s name to perpetrate their crime.
Below are some of their scam messages/ comments you should be wary of;
(1)”Hello, my name is stacy,

The above comments, even with how stupid/ clever they may sound, still get the attention of some JAMBites who eventually fall victim to the scam.
We don’t want that to happen to you! Don’t even contemplate calling any of their phone numbers out of curiosity as you may end up brainwashed into believing them.
Another advice we want to pass across to the JAMBites is to STOP POSTING THEIR REGISTRATION AND PHONE NUMBERS on public forums on the internet. These scammers now gather phone numbers posted by JAMBites on Forums and comment section of websites, then send scam text messages claiming to be “JAMB OFFICIAL” who got their contacts from an imaginary “JAMB database”.
We will also like to use this opportunity to warn the fraudsters to stay away from campusportalng.com as we will no longer just delete their scam comments outright but will henceforth forward their phone numbers to relevant authorities to bring them to book.
Let he who have ear hear!!
Best of luck To You all…
