JOB SCAM: FAKE RECRUITMENT AGENCIES/COMPANIES NIGERIA HAS AND THEIR ADDRESSES SO FAR IN 2018


This morning I was mentioned on a tweet made by @ZeekahFrancis (thanks to @keresifonekpo) about two prominent addresses used by fake companies. I was pleased to see someone else willing to publish these things online to help fight against scam and scammers. And since I have had the mind of writing this, I decided to use this push to give you more details about fake recruitment agencies and companies Nigeria has especially now that the rate of joblessness is high and people are desperate to get anything that comes their way.

This post is based on the data we have gathered so far on isthisarealjob.com which has been contributed by 117 people.  We currently have (as at the time of this writing) 381 posts and 406 comments. If you feel any of these items below is wrong, feel free to reach out.

Keep in mind that scam is a dishonest scheme; a fraud. Hence, if a company invites you for a job interview and it turned out to be an MMM or MLM seminar, then its a scam.

Popular fake recruitment agencies and companies in Nigeria.

It is safe to say that getting a job from any of the addresses/companies listed below should not be taken seriously.

  1. Plot 5, Voda Paint Plc, University Press House, Fumec Bus Stop Off Adeniyi Jones Ogba Lagos.

There are more than 10 different jobs invite formats on isthisarealjob.com with different company names associated with this address. Some of the company names associated with this address are:

  • Iminds media,
  • GRAND HERITAGE LTD,
  • ELITE OUTSOURCING SOLUTIONS NIG,
  • TOPMOSTCAREER,
  • Careerhost,
  • Concept Careers & Recruitment
  • Bliss initiatives
  • Management Resource and
  • Linktech Resource

2. 3rd floor, 8 Thomas Salako Street, Ogba Bus-Stop, Ikeja Lagos.

Those operating this scam outfit are not as creative as the ‘University Press’ people above, their invites, though always short, are usually full of errors. The address is associated with GIMS, a confirmed scam outfit.

3. 192, Ikorodu Rd, beside Firstbank, Palmgrove Lagos:

There has not been much buzz on this address, it is associated with Fortune Careers Limited LTD. Although unconfirmed, we suspect that they also run DGS of 2, Sunday street, Beside GTBANK, Palmgrove B/stop, Lagos.

4. 6th Floor, 65c Opebi road, opposite glass house by Salvation b/stop, Opebi, Ikeja, Lagos

The address is associated with M.H.S a GNLD type outfit that posses as a company big enough to have an HR department.

Futhermore, a similar address with a different name is 44, Opebi Rd. Ikeja. associated with Livingstonewall Invest. Ltd, and also SUPREME NIG of 6th floor of L,monarch plaza opposite rikaz shopping plaza by salvation bus stop, Opebi, Ikeja.

However, we suspect that these scam outfits are being run by the same group. Other company names associated with these addresses are:

  • MADE HILLS SOLUTION.
  • Trapezoid (with a slight variation: 39, Opebi Road, Opposite Adebola House, Ikeja)
  •  PSIS
  • ARM (95b, Opebi Road, Ikeja, Lagos)

5. 7, Razaq Balogun Street, off Adebola street, off Adeniran Ogunsanya road, Surulere

Operated by BG-LEAD CONCEPT, the same address is also associated with

  • CRANFIELD CONSULTING
  •  LEAD CONCEPT

6. No-5 SURULERE INDUSTRIAL ESTATE, ADENIYI JONES IKEJA.

Most likely operated by the ‘University Press’ operators above. Here’s an experience of someone who fell for their scam. It is associated with Grand lead Heritage, or GRAND HERITAGE LTD

7. BOSS GROUP GLOBAL MULTI-SERVICE, BOSS GLOBAL CONCEPT or Suit 4B Ogunbeye Street, Off Amaraolu street Agindibi, Ikeja. Lagos. Also known as BOSS RESOURCES

Therefore, with all being said, any job interview received from any of these fake recruitment agencies should never be given even a first thought.

  • Please just got an interview email now as exactly the same as Mr. Adesola being scheduled on Wednesday 21/11/2018.

  • Pls i got a massage to come to uba bank 122 palmgroove ikorodun for an interview.pls is it real.

    • Hi there,
      It’s much faster to post on isthisarealjob.com.

      Also, if it’s UBA, and on getting to the address you see that it’s UBA, then it’s most likely real. However, if you see that it’s not UBA when you get there you should probably not go in.

      Thank.

    Pls how true is this reply ASAP

    • M.H.S is a confirmed GNLD type of job. If you are not interested in MLM you should probably not go, however, if you do decide to go please come back here to give feedback to help others.

  • Yeah ! GLND PRODUCTS
    The annoying parts are:
    You will register with #3000
    You will buy your franchise rights for #16000
    You will be deceived from 9am to 1.30pm or more
    You will be asked to mute your phone for the periods you’re there.
    You will watch a video clip of one preacher,telling u about vision and many more trash.
    My question is,who is going after this guys? Where is EFCC office? Because this scammers are really tearing jobless people apart
    SUGGESTION: GLND PRODUCT SHOULD BE BANNED. It is a tool used by fraudsters

    • Thank you for your comment.

      We are only doing the small part we can do for now, but we do have future plans to take more active moves towards permanently ending the problem.

      Unfortunately, this is not the jurisdiction of the EFCC, it’s more of a police problem.

      And I don’t think to ban GNLD products is the solution, regulating the distribution and punishing offenders might be a good solution though.

      One way you can help out / join in the fight is to share this post and the platform with as many people as possible and educate people around you about the problem.

      Thank you.

    Email: vpointconsulting@gmail.com

    • Hi Chidera,

      After preliminary research, here are our findings:

      1. ValuePoint Consulting is not registered with CAC, although there are very similar names
      2. None of the similar names above is registered with the address above, though there are addresses quite close
      3. The invite does not include the name of the company you are being interviewed for, only the name of the consulting firm
      4. The email address is a personal email
      5. The invite format is very similar to GNLD type of invites.

      Conclusion: although we do not have the name in our database (isthisarealjob.com) as a scam or otherwise, we, however, ask that you consider the points above to make your decision.

      If you do decide to attend the interview, endeavor to give us feedback so we can update our database appropriately and be of help to others.

      Thank you.

      • Thanks for your support. I decided not to attend the so-called interview on grounds of untrustworthiness. I’m glad your findings corroborate with my thoughts.

        Thank you immensely.

  • Thanks for the information, it’s really helpful. I received an email this afternoon from hr.globalintegrated@gmail.com inviting me for an interview; for MHS. I think they have changed their address. The email is below:

  • Excellent article. I certainly appreciate this website.
    Continue the good work!

  • Pls I have a disturbing question to ask. Can’t we all mobilize and form a very big group and match to these various addresses and locations to request that they stop or else we will start hunting them one by one ? as they have put many job seekers in one crisis or the other … Blessed day ahead

    • We have plans to intensify our efforts to stop these scammers. However, issuing threats will not the best way to go, but we do understand your pain and truly is can be frustrating. For now, all we can do is keep spreading the word so that fewer people fall for them.

    • Hi Odinakachi,

      The pattern of the invite follows fake invites. I recommend you not attend, except you are very close to the venue and just want to see.

      If you do attend, please come back to give us update here.

      Thank you.

  • HR HEAD INVITES YOU FOR A CHAT WITH BOARD OF DIRECTORS ON TUESDAY 12/03/19.9AM@1ST FLOOR 32 OLUFEMI RD,LAWANSON B/STOP SURULERE LAGOS.SRT.SHOW TEXT TO SECURITY

    • This is most likely a fake invite for the following reasons:

      1. the address already exists in our database
      2. No one invites a new person to come meet with the board of directors
      3. The invite does not carry the company name
      4. The invite gives just a few hours
      5. It is very similar to other fake invites on our website

      We recommend you not go for this interview as it will most likely turn out to be a scam.
