The Customs Area Controller, CAC ,Nigeria Customs Service NCS,
Seme Area Command, Comptroller Mohammed Uba has refuted information going viral on the social media impersonating him as the one empowering Nigerian youths with the sum of N80,000 each as well as giving out auctions of items like bags of rice at cheapest rate of N6,500 and exotic cars worth millions of naira at a give-away price price of N300,000 only as well as other household items.

According to the alleged information which is already generating serious concerns in the social media, some of it read: “I want to use this little opportunity to empower Nigeria youths financially. So I’m giving out a token of Eighty Thousand Naira (N80,000) to start up small scale profitable business you wish. So contact Mr. Charles (financial secretary for further documentation)”.

The fraudsters gave out fake telephone numbers like 2348159047716, a number to contact so as to get the cash immediately and give feedback to the same owner of the telephone number.The fraudsters, who are bent on rubbishing the good image and the highly-cherished reputation acquired over the years by the Seme Customs Area controller, Compt. Uba as they informed their would-be victims and the users and account holders with Sky bank, Unity bank, Sterling bank and FMCB bank accounts and any prospective victim who doesn’t have account with any of the four listed banks that they can call them on this mobile phone number 08159047716″.

Meanwhile, another angle to this was the second aspect of information coming from the same fraudulent source which reads: “To Whom it May Concern.”…Order for your goods in credit for a cheapest rate and the goods will be delivered to your destination”.
The said fraudsters however, through the second information still going viral in the social media,  informed their would-be-victims that payment can be made short period after sales”.

They tried to use the name of Talatu Isa Mario as the ACG Tariff and Trade who can be contacted for the auction trading.
While reacting to this, the CAC of Seme Command of the NCS, Compt. Mohammed Garba Uba who spoke to these reporters on the development urged Nigerian especially the venerable and Innocent Nigerian youths to disregard these whose only stock in trade is to defraud innocent Nigerian public.”They  are fraudsters. And this is the only thing they know how to do. People should be careful of them and their activities. They operate with about 11 different account numbers, but they are all fake account numbers.”Compt. Uba continued: “If you read the stories or the information they have been passing through the social media, you will know that it is all about falsehood and nothing more than that”.
They even wanted to robe in a retired Comptroller Tariff and Trade, a retired Customs Officer? That will tell you the extent they have gone to and what they can do”.The CAC, therefore, called on Nigerians to be wise especially this time around when they hear that the borders are closed.They are fraudsters, allegedly claim that their victims can get a bag of foreign rice at N6,500 through them.”Bag of rice at N6, 500 and bag of Cement at N1,500,Phones, iphones, laptop, laptop, Gas cooker, plasma TV etc,” the report reads.
