The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has asked prospective corps members to disregard information making the rounds that online registration for the 2016, Batch ‘B’ orientation course begins on September 8, 2016.
In a statement issued on Monday, the NYSC described the information being circulated on the internet as the handiwork work of fraudsters who want to defraud unsuspecting prospective corps members.
The statement reads: “The Management wishes to inform all prospective corps members, parents, guardians and the general public, that no date has yet been fixed for the 2016 Batch ‘B’ orientation course.
“The information did not emanate from the NYSC website, but the handiwork of scammers, whose intention is most likely to defraud unsuspecting prospective corps members and the general public.
“As soon as Management comes out with the date for the forthcoming orientation course, this would be made known to all those concerned through our normal channels of communication viz

“We enjoin all prospective corps members to disregard the announcement in question, and wait for the correct information on the next orientation course which will soon be made known from our official platforms.”
