The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has drawn the attention of Nigerians to the activities of fraudsters using fake websites to dupe unsuspecting members of the public.
JAMB Registrar, Prof Ish-aq Oloyede, who made the disclosure on Thursday, February 16, said such websites were being used to solicit payments for malpractices in the forthcoming 2017 JAMB examination.
Special attention is drawn to the continuous advertisement soliciting for payments for malpractice services for the forthcoming 2017 JAMB examination by www.askjamb.com.
The registrar added that the website had continued to advertise help for candidates with JAMB 2017 live questions and planned malpractice offers to candidates, including help within the examination hall.
He, therefore, called on relevant authorities to ensure that the websites be taken down and their perpetuators brought to justice.
He said the board with the help of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has suspended the domain of some of the websites.
We would like to note that the following domains remain active: www.jambresults.org.ng, www.askjamb.com and www.jamborgng.info.
We urge the public to be careful of the websites because they do not belong to JAMB
