Management of the Nigeria Air Limited has warned against fake recruitment websites and links being used by “unscrupulous elements” claiming to be staff or agents of the upcoming airline with intent to defraud the unsuspecting members of the public.
The Special Assistant (Public Affairs) to the Minister of Aviation, James Odaudu, in a statement, on Tuesday, said that the airline is not receiving applications at the moment and that no tests or interview is scheduled for those who applied for the earlier officially advertised positions
He, however, advised those who had applied to get authenticated information from the official website – www.nigeriaair.world.
According to the statement: “The attention of the Management of Nigeria Air Limited has been drawn to some recruitment advertisements and announcements by certain unscrupulous elements claiming to be agents or staff of the upcoming airline.
“The so-called agents have created a host of fake websites and links supposedly for the submission of applications by unsuspecting members of the public.
“We wish to inform the general public, especially those who have applied for the earlier officially advertised positions that no recruitment interviews or tests have been scheduled. All such announcements or invitations for such should be disregarded as they are the handiwork of fraudsters and scammers.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the official website is www.nigeriaair.world, and only those pre-qualified as meeting the B737 requirements will be contacted by the management of Nigeria Air Limited individually, and certainly not by public announcements.
“All those concerned are therefore advised to ignore such announcements or invitations, as responding to , or dealing with them in any way, will be at their own risk.”
