Multinational oil giant, Chevron Nigeria Limited has raised the alarm over the activities of fraudsters ostensibly recruiting on behalf of the company.
It said the fraudulent job offers were sent through e-mails, text messages and phone calls by individuals purporting to be staff or representatives of the company with the intent to defraud their victims.
A statement signed by the General Manager, Policy, Government & Public Affairs, Esimaje O. Brikinn, decried the circulation of the false recruitment exercise.
While the statement disassociated Chevron from the misinformation, it warned unsuspecting members of the public to beware of mischief-makers, masquerading as “Chevron Oil and Gas”.
“Chevron Nigeria Limited, operator of the NNPC/ Chevron Nigeria Limited Joint Venture, is aware of the circulation of false recruitment information posted by unscrupulous persons or organizations in the name of Chevron Nigeria Limited or “Chevron Oil and Gas” in several media and online channels, advertising job positions in Chevron Nigeria Limited or Chevron Oil and Gas,” the statement said.
Chevron thereby dissociated itself from such false job recruitment information, and offers of employment contracts published in any newspaper, web site, email, poster, handbill or any other medium. Chevron Nigeria Limited did not make or authorize any such publication.
