United States visa fraud alert
OpenLife Nigeria has been reliably told that visa scammers have devised fresh methods of perpetrating their fraudulent practices.
Over the years, unsuspecting victims have fallen into the antics of scammers, a development that has given Nigeria and the diplomatic community lots of concerns.
In an official statement by the United States of America Embassy made available to OpenLife, Nigerians and visa seeking individuals have been warmed not to fall victim to the scam.
The statement reads in full:
“The U.S Mission to Nigeria is drawing the general public’s attention to a fake “press release” claiming to offer a new type of work visa to Nigerians. Scammers and fraudsters circulate this phony information that the new work visa applies to Nigerian citizens aged 40-55.
The U.S. Embassy in Abuja and Consulate in Lagos is warning Nigerians not to fall victims to the scam.
It is the same old scam, but in fresh packaging – don’t become a victim! If you have questions about whether visa information is legitimate, please refer only to official sources” travel.state.gov, ng.usembassy.gov/visas, and www.ustraveldocs.com/ng.
