The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied any recruitment exercise by the Service.
This is contained in a statement by the Public Relations Officer of DSS, Doctor Peter Afunanya in Abuja.
The statement explains that the clarification became necessary in view of desperate efforts by fraudsters to scam unsuspecting job seekers.
It urges the public to note that recruitment into the Service is never done on monetary basis instead, it is guided by merit and transparency.
It says accordingly, beneficiaries undergo series of screening processes through which only the best is taken.
The statement emphasizes that in the context of this, members of the public should be mindful of attempts by fraudulent persons and groups to fleece them of their hard earned money.
It advises the public to report any suspicion in regards to the recruitment into the Service.
The statement warns those engaged in the misleading acts of raising false recruitment alerts or defrauding others to desist from such or be ready to face the music.
It adds that so far, the Service is sustaining efforts on clamping down on the activities of fake job syndicates using its name to deceive and scam the public.
