The Special Assistant to President Buhari on Digital & New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi has raised alarm on social media warning Nigerians to beware of a new scam being used by fraudsters to defraud victims.
He said that a Federal Government of Nigeria relief disbursement collation form trending online is fake after many people had thought it was actually created by the government.
Due to the ongoing lockdown across the country, many Nigerians are currently expectant of a form of relief disbursement from the FG.
Some fraudsters have decided to use the opportunity to create a fake google form that claims to be created by the government.
Taking to Twitter, Tolu Ogunlesi the Special Assistant to President Buhari on Digital & New Media, cautioned the public against filling such forms. He wrote;
“Someone sent this to me asking if genuine. GoogleDocs form.
Fill it at your own risk.
The only people who will ask you to supply banking details etc on a random online form are SCAMMERS.
Don’t let anyone collect the little you’re managing. STOP GIVING OUT SENSITIVE INFO!!!”
