EXPOSED! Check Out 13 Alleged Fake Job Venues In Lagos, Numbers 3 And 10 Are Ritualists

Fake recruiters and employers cause a lot of pain to job seekers. You should be careful dealing with them, while some are after extorting money from you others claim to be what they are not.

Lagos state, according to the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics (NBS) in its Crime Rates In States across Nigeria (2017), has the highest percentage of reported crime rate.

“Lagos state has the highest percentage share of total cases reported with 50,975 (37.9%) cases recorded,” the NBS stated.
Despite Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s claim that the state has become one of the safest cities in Africa, residents of the economic nerve centre of Nigeria still face huge security challenges.

As Nigeria’s economic powerhouse, employment opportunity in Lagos is very high when compared to other states in the country. Thus, many young Nigerians troop to the city in search of greener pastures.

A recurrent and dangerous occurrence in Lagos is the proliferation of fake job venues and ritualist centres in the city.

Young and unsuspecting residents of the city who are looking for jobs and other relevant opportunities are often lured to fake job venues where they are robbed of their belongings. At the extreme, some are lured into ritualists’ den through fake jobs adverts.

Don’t be desperate for a job

Many times I have encountered job seekers mostly females who tell me they are ready to do anything to get a good job. Sometime ago even one lady I never met before kept calling and offering to meet me in person despite telling her there was no need for that. Such persons are susceptible to being duped. When you appear desperate you becloud your judgment and make yourself an easy target for job scammers.

Conduct Your Background Research

Just as we conduct rigorous checks on all agencies who submit their job vacancies to us you the job seeker should also do your due diligence on the organization behind any job offer before you apply.

Beware of companies that invite you for interviews in a separate location from their office or that hide their address when inviting you for an interview

Many fake recruiting agencies simply invite candidates to mass interviews in public school buildings or halls and do everything possible to hide their actual address from the candidates. When a recruiter does that it may be a sign that they are not genuine. You can confirm that they are not genuine if they finally ask you for money.

There are so many licensed recruiters around the country but still a few unscrupulous ones go about looking for people to scam. When you apply for a job or get invited to interviews by an employer, you can always report any organization that demands for any form of advance fee from you during the process before they will offer you a job.  The key is to never appear desperate for a job and never offer anybody money to get a job. If you do these two, you will generally be fine.
