According to the Chairman of the association, Comrade Chidiebere Egboh the fraudsters also collect money from their victims promising them of placing them in “Special Centres” to cheat during UTME.
He described this as dangerous and called on prospective candidates to be careful as JAMB is yet to commence registration.
“The fraudsters play fast one and extort N15, 000 and above from thousands of unsuspecting prospective JAMB candidates.
“The consequences are that the fraudsters will elope with candidates’ money and they will not have genuine centres to write the examination.
“The issue of ‘special centres’ had been clamped down. We must emphasis that there will be nothing like ‘special centre’ any longer” He said.
He advised candidates to verify accredited JAMB Registration Centers via JAMB official website.
