A Close Friend Once Shared His Experience With Me On How He Was Nearly Scammed Shortly After Completing His Nysc Program. A Few Weeks After He Passed Out, After Heatedly Looking For Job With Mere Promises And Little Success, He Was Almost Giving Up. It Was Then That He Got A Call From A Person That Claimed He Was His Close Pal Since Camp. The Person Mention A Host Of Other Names Of Their Supposed Friend Group.
He Confessed That Though He Didn’t Recognize Any Of The Names Or The Person On The Phone, But He Just Didn’t Want To Embarrass The Person. This Is Quite Normal For Most Of Us. He Agreed And Played Along, To See Where It Was Going. The Guy Who Identified Himself As Chinedu Told Him That He Got A Job At A Popular Oil Company, Shell. After All The Congratulations And All, He Informed My Friend That There Was A Hidden Vacancy Available.
Who Would’nt Be Excited At The Information. He Promptly Jumped At It, Asking What It Takes To Get That Place. His Supposed ‘Close Pal’ From Camp Informed Him That He Wanted Him To Have The Job, That It Was Why He Called Him. He Went Further To Request A Sum Of N200,000.00 For The Job Processing. He Told Him The Money Will Be Used To Grease A Few Hands So He Can Come On Board. At This Time My Friend’s Interest And Reasoning Has Been Caught Up By Greed As He Kept Imagining How Much Oil Workers Were Paid.
He Started Making Arrangement To Have The Money Ready. Borrowing From All He Can And Promising Heaven And Earth. He Finally Had The Complete Sum. He Tried Calling The Pal But His Saving Grace Was He Didn’t Pick Up. So He Left The Transaction Till Later As He Was Rushing To Attend A Wedding.
In The Bus He Met A Couple Of Old Friend During The Service Year. They Greeted And Exchanged Pleasantries. When They Tried To Catch Up On Their Work Progress, My Friend Wasn’t Too Willing To Divulge His Gold Mine. However, On A Second Thought He Asked Them After The Chinedu Guy, Giving All The Description The Guy Gave. That Was The Moment It Happened.
One Of His Friend Opened Up And Narrated How A Similar Description And Name Has Been Calling Him About A Job At Shell! You Can Imagine How Shocked My Friend Was. It Was A Huge Testimony For Him. Imagine Loosing N200, 000.00 In This Recession, Without Even Getting A Job For It.
He Was Lucky God Saved Him But Many Are Not That Lucky. This Was A Near Miss While Others Are Already Regretting, Considering To Take A Plunge Into The Lagos Lagoon.
Ex-Corp Member Should Be Very Careful Of Job Offers They Jump At. My Friend Didn’t Lose Too Much Though A Couple Of Mtn N1, 500 Was Sent In The Short Period. The Question Is How Do They Now You Have Passed Out. Your NYSC Photo Album. Here You Have Your Picture, Name, Phone Number And State Code.
