Beware of JAMB Result Upgrade Scam.
There is an increase in the number of internet fraudsters targeting UTME candidates as they believe that with the release of the 2019 JAMB results, the number of their potential victims has increased.
Who are these fraudsters? They are a group of jobless individuals with no integrity whose sole aim is to dupe Nigerian students of as much money as they can. They usually target young, naive, and gullible O’level Exam candidates with promises of getting a better result for them, helping them secure university admission etc.
Their commonly used trick lately is the Exam result upgrade where they claim to help candidates upgrade JAMB, NECO, WAEC results etc.
We will like to use this medium to inform all JAMBites that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS JAMB RESULT UPGRADE!
Please, stay away from these unscrupulous elements asking you to pay certain amount of money for your result to be upgraded. They are all scammers no matter how convincing they may sound. They even go as far as using God’s name to perpetrate their crime.
Below are some of their scam messages/ comments you should be wary of;
(1)”Hello, my name is stacy,

The above comments, even with how stupid/ clever they may sound, still get the attention of some JAMBites who eventually fall victim to the scam.
We don’t want that to happen to you! Don’t even contemplate calling any of their phone numbers out of curiosity as you may end up brainwashed into believing them.
